Shameless Self Promotion (SSP) - A Great Updated Version

Click to download PDF Version

It has been our practice for the past ten (10) years, for GCEC to offer you an opportunity to share with the entire conference parts of your program for which you are particularly proud - thus, "Shameless Self Promotion."

"This year our hosts, Pennsylvania State University and Vienna University of Economics and Business, will enhance SSP by creating a new format. As the theme of the conference is "Impact of Networks" we would like to make SSP a vehicle of a two-way exchange of expertise. So…

  1. We will divide SSP into two distinct classes → something that is really unique in your program which we can all learn from (20 presenters) or something that you need to execute on in order to move to the next level (selfless self-denigration) (5 presenters).
  2. In order for you to be selected, kindly submit a two-line proposal of what you wish to espouse. Send this to Maggie Ailes at: mailes@bsu.edu no later than September 15, 2010.
  3. SSP will convene for one hour following a plenary session. One chance to shine. All presentations are limited to no more than 2 minutes… strictly enforced.
  4. Since presentations are limited to 25 total, we will assemble an esteemed group of judges to select the best. Trust us, the process will be fair and the selection will be great. Fewer great presentations are more engaging than just an open mic.
  5. If for some reason you are not selected, bring a summary description of your SSP and we will distribute and also load them onto the conference web-site
