Since 2007, I’ve worked with a lot of speakers for meetup events, workshops, and conferences.
First-time speakers, seasoned veterans, speakers on panel discussions, internationally-known authors, and remote speakers.
I try to make sure I give speakers all the information they need and expect for a successful talk.
And sometimes, like this month, when I have four different events I’m hosting, I have a lot of checklists.
But no matter how hard I try, there’s always some technical issue that I can’t control at events, like:
- No wifi
- The microphone doesn’t work
- The projector is only showing a black slide
- Presenter’s laptop crashes
Sometimes you just have to find an alternative.
I’m planning on getting there early, so we should be good.
I’ve got my presentation online, and on my computer and on a USB drive. I’ve also got an HDMI port (and cable) on my laptop and a VGA adapter.
Excellent, Seth. Sounds like you’re prepared for everything.
And thank you, you made my morning. See you tonight!
