For Speakers

Welcome, speakers!

Thank you for contributing to the IAPP ANZ Summit 2019.


Jennie McManus, Programming & Speaker Coordinator, will be your main contact at IAPP during the event life cycle. Please reach out to Jennie if you have any questions.

To help ensure the success of your session, please see these important instructions:

Check the online schedule to see your session date and time.

To support and help market your presentation, we may have modified your session title, description and takeaways. Please incorporate these changes into your presentation.



All speakers will be automatically registered with a complimentary pass to the conference. Conference passes are eligible for activities on Tuesday, 29 October and Wednesday, 30 October. Please email Jennie if you have any special dietary requirements.



Check back for more information soon.

11 October: Send final presentation to your speaker manager

Send electronic copies of your presentation and handouts in PPT format to Jennie by end of the day. Speakers must use the IAPP event-specific PPT template provided here. Please follow the guidelines on Slide 1. If you’re on a panel, you must combine presentations into one deck. You are required to bring your presentation on a USB key with you to the conference. If this is not possible, please contact Jennie.

Please Note:

Make every effort to meet the deadlines. If you do not we may need to cancel your session and complimentary pass. We are thrilled to have you on board and really don’t want to do that.

Need to make a change to speakers, panellists or presentation content? It’s important to get approval by the IAPP. Please contact Jennie immediately if you need to make adjustments.
