Presentation SuggestionsYou are welcome to bring printed materials to place at each table. Attendance runs about 40 or 50, partly depending upon your teaser on our website. For that purpose, please see request above. A/V available, but must show up between 1145 and 1200 to get it working. If your laptop has a VGA output, we have a cable and projector for you. If you have a cable that will connect your laptop to our projector's HDMI, S-Video or RCA inputs, you are also good to go. Otherwise, you may do fine by putting your presentation on a USB drive and running it through our laptop. You are encouraged to attend a meeting prior to your presentation to see how our meetings go and double-check the A/V situation. Once in a while a presenter has lots of bullet points; a warning, some of us find these to be great sleep aids. Your audience will remain awake better and enjoy your effort more with images, diagrams, and demonstrations. Please focus your presentation on stories, situations, and concrete information. This will get your ideas across far better than any inclusive outline of methods and goals. If you are working with an organization, don't start with photos of the chiefs. Tell us how they've changed people's lives, then we will have a reason to want to know who the front line people are.Most of us can read while you speak. Don't read your slides to us. We will provide your lunch, usually salad, soup, dessert.Meeting starts at 1215, program starts around 1235, best to finish by 1255 at the latest, questions must end by 1:05 so that meeting ends by 1:15. If we find your presentation valuable, we will give you a reference for our sister clubs.
