Slide Sharing Permission Form

We would like to share any slide decks you use during the session with attendees after the event.

If you are using slides, when you upload them you will be asked to complete this simple permission form. The form gives you the option to provide an edited slide deck that is different from the ones you use on the day. Please indicate where this is the case.
