As you prepare for your UMLA Conference presentation, consider the following tips:
There is a presenter/vendor packet you will receive upon check-in. It contains:
- conference program
- a snack
- session evaluations
Make sure you have read the Equipment Document and that you have all the necessary items for your presentation.
Think Backup! UMLA is taking every precaution to make sure that the network is functioning properly and that you will be able to access the Internet for your materials, examples or presentation. But, things can happen.
- Be prepared to present without a connection.
- This could mean having the presentation on a USB drive, hard drive or computer desktop.
- Have screenshots or videos ready to use in place of a live connection
Once you know your room assignment, look at the maps to determine the room size. Use that information in preparing for your presentation. Think about sound, text size etc.
Locate and visit your room sometime before your presentation. Talk with a presenter that has used that room and see how it went and if there were any issues. (of course, catch them after the presentation, not during)
Practice, Practice Practice
