It can be any type of presentation such as a success story, an urban program launch, the description of a problem in your community, even an artistic performance. The most important feature is that your message can help other communities or cities to improve their quality of life.

No, you will have a 30 minutes slot on the speakers program but it will be distributed as follows: 20 minutes to talk, 5 minutes for Q&A, and 5 minutes for technical check, time adjustments, etc.

Yes, you can invite colleagues and peers to be with you in a discussion-panel-like session. You need only one paid Thought Leader plan to get the right to be on stage and your peers can register with alternative plans (Partner or Advocate).
