Tips for Presentation Preparation and Delivery
| ✔ Use the microphones provided; our members have requested that all presenters use them to ensure they can hear the presentation.
✔ Repeat all questions or have attendees speak into microphone to ask them.
✔ Occasionally check for attendee feedback to ensure attendees can hear, see, etc.
✔ Remind attendees at beginning and end of the session to complete evaluations on paper or on the conference app.
