About this event

Go to event website icon_popup

A presentation competition for 18-26 year olds, and you don't have to be an IET member to take part.

Food and drink provided, audience members very welcome.

We aim to have five contestants.  Each contestant speaks for ten minutes on a technical topic of their choice, and must then take questions from the audience for a further five minutes.  The audience and judges (there are three of them) have varied technical backgrounds from both industry and academia, and you are thus judged mostly on your ability to explain your technical topic to people who, whilst technical themselves, won't be familiar with your specialist area.

First prize on the night is £150 and second prize is £100, with both also winning a year's free membership of the IET - could be a very profitable 15 minutes!

It is a great way to practice your presentation skills, meet some interesting people, hopefully win some money and also listen to some very interesting talks.

If you are interested in presenting, or have any questions, please send an email to Leona So

Alternatively, if you would like like to come along on the night as an audience member, please just use this registration link:
