The day of a speaking event can get hectic, so I use a checklist to make sure I don’t forget something critical!
Speaker Checklist:
  • Confirm time/location/agenda/AV set up
  • Presentation Notes
  • Equipment (computer, cords, remote, flash drive, etc.)
  • Clothing (jacket on hanger), back-up clothing

  • Cell phone
  • Contact phone numbers
  • Map to location
  • Handouts (bring some, even if the host is making copies)
