  • Have extra copies of your handouts with you in case someone arrives unexpectedly.
  • Place all materials in a notebook.
  • Make sure everything is typewritten or computer-generated--no handwritten documents.
  • Customize everything to your audience; don't use form letters.
  • Edit your presentation so you give listeners what they want yet leave them wanting more.
  • Have no more than 12 pages in any handout.

  • Bring your business cards and collect business cards from everyone at the meeting.
