2022 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit Landing Banner

PowerPoint™ Karaoke

Wednesday, May 11
7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Hawaiʻi Convention Center, Level 3, Room 301B

PowerPoint Karaoke challenges both the author of the slide and the presenter to improve their communication skills.

During the event, presenters were placed in a breakout room and received their assigned slides. Presenters were given five minutes to prepare a two-minute (maximum) presentation.

Winners were selected by anonymous audience voting. First ($200), second ($100) and third ($50) place prizes were awarded to both authors and presenters.

MRS TV talks to 2022 MRS Spring Meeting PowerPoint™ Karaoke event organizers Michael Wilhelm and Anja Sutorius about this fun, engaging meeting event.
