WMC19 Lightning Talk: Richard Baxter | Age Gets Better With Wine | The Legacy of Australia’s Wine Doctors

This is the opportunity to hear from your fellow attendees. We will have eight speakers, each of whom will have five minutes to present on a subject that is near to his or her heart. The catch is each speaker has to use 20 slides that are set to auto-rotate every 15 seconds, which keeps the talks fast and fun.
