Handling your written materials is actually easier when you work with a group. To control the pace of the presentation, the best tactic is to hand out one page of the presentation at a time. In a small room of participants, you can easily handle this yourself--provided you can walk and talk at the same time.
With a larger group, you may need assistance, which the group members can provide. If you don't have a helper with you, just ask the people nearest to you to "take one and pass them on." Your goal is for everyone in the group to get a copy, but you don't want anyone reading a page until you're ready to talk about it.
