Creating a great profile: First impressions matter

Introduction: First impression and establishing credibility

Banner images that make an impact

  • Use a high-quality photo, a photo which is crisp and non-pixelated is optimal so the event organizer can clearly see you.
  • Show your audience so the event organizer can see what your key audience looks like.
  • Show yourself in the type of event you are looking for. If you want to talk to highschool students, give workshops, high-level keynotes, whatever it is, feature it. Your banner should reflect the audiences you are speaking to.
