    Got a project you can tell us about in 5 minutes? Tell us about it in a lightning talk at NYC DH Week (kickoff event February 6)

    Deadline to submit is Friday, February 3, at 9:00 a.m. If accepted, your talk will be given at the NYC DH Week Kick-off Event, Monday, February 6, sometime between 1:30-2:30 PM. You’ll know if your talk is accepted by the end of the day on Friday.

    How it works:
    Apply for the talk, and if you’re accepted, we’ll request your slide deck. With such a short length of time, you’ve got to plan your talk carefully. Your statements should be succinct, and your slides should be snappy!

    Michelle Lam, founder of True&Co, explains that less is more:

    Need a lightning talk timer? There’s an app for that!

    If you’re selected, practice, practice, practice!
