Nobody wants to walk into a training room to find an unprepared presenter. Of course, I’ve never met a presenter who looked himself in the mirror and said: “I really hope that I look foolish and unprepared today!”
One of the best ways I know how to prepare for a presentation is through a well-designed lesson plan. But even the most creative, instructionally sound presentations can quickly get de-railed if the presenter forgot to bring an important material or if a piece of equipment just wasn’t set up in time. The following checklist could prove helpful in day-of-presentation preparation.
On the day of a training workshop, I know there can be a lot of things happening – meetings, phone calls, emails, other project deadlines. I’ve found having a checklist like this can help remove my anxiety around being certain I have everything I need as I head into the training room.
Is there anything missing from this checklist? Drop me a line in the comments section.
