FinDEVr Timeline

TECHTalk Keynote Coaching

Before planning your 15-minute TECHTalk, make sure to watch this short video from Greg Palmer (Finovate VP and MC). 

Greg will share tips for creating a presentation that will engage the audience, clearly communicate why your technology is innovative/interesting, and maximize the value of your keynote. He's seen hundreds of presentations and has a lot of experience to share with you.

He'll also briefly touch on the requirements and setup for recording your TECHTalk. 


TECHTalk Keynote Rehearsal & Recording

Each call is 30 minutes with Heather and the A/V team. Calls are on Fridays: April 16, 23, and 30. 

You have the option to book one or two calls. If you book two calls, the first will be used as a rehearsal call. If you book only one call, we'll record your presentation during it. 

When scheduling your call, please indicate whether it is your rehearsal or recording call.

Workshop

In these workshops, speakers have 90 minutes to engage with attendees in small groups. Run a hands-on session integrating an API, hold a mini-coding competition with a prize, or walk through tutorials or best practices (when building AI products, for example).

The goal of these workshops is to familiarize technology teams with your products, while supplying the interaction that attracts them: engagement, feedback, Q&A.

Speaker and Team Event Tickets

The speaker package includes two free speaker tickets, 60% discounted tickets for your team, and 20% discounted tickets for social media. 

Speaker Tickets

While the keynote presentation is prerecorded, the workshop takes place live. Each FinDEVr package includes two free speaker tickets for the workshop. 

We'll register your two speakers for the event based on the information you supply in the company profile form. 

Team Ticket Discount

Each package contains tickets discounted 60% for your team members, customers, VIPs, etc. This discount can be used on tickets to just the FinDEVr day ($99 before the discount) or all three days of FinovateSpring ($699 until April 30). The discount code is FKV2376VTFD60.
