Description

If you were invited to speak, then take time to interview or otherwise engage with the organizers of the event. In doing this, you can investigate such as:

  • What they are looking for in your presentation.
  • The 'normal' style of presentation.
  • What time you will have to speak.
  • What time of the day you will be speaking.
  • Who you will be speaking to.
  • How many people will be there.
  • What topics other speakers will be covering.
  • Who will speak before and after you.
  • The size and shape of the room.
  • What equipment they will provide, from projectors to flipcharts.
  • What time you should get there.
  • Directions to the venue.
  • What local accommodation is available (if needed).

Example

I am speaking at a national sales conference. I call the organizers and have a good conversation about what is wanted, and so on. I also get them to send me a delegate list and a video that was made of last year's presentations.

Discussion

At the very least, speaking with and listening to the organizers is a polite thing to do, and if you want to be invited back again then this becomes even more important.
