Preparation is the Key

PPQ — Logistics

Other questions concern the venue and circumstances surrounding your presentation —

  • When does your meeting begin? (date and time)

  • When does it end?

  • When does my program start and end?

  • What is happening immediately before my presentation? After my presentation?

  • If I have any problems getting to the site, who should I contact?

  • What is the name and title of my introducer and how I can contact him or her?

Although you may be asking some of these other questions to executives, expected members of your audience, and so on, these simple logistical questions should be directed to the meeting planner only. Consequently, you may choose to make them part of your PPQ, or you may ask these questions in a separate communication. (Of course, to avoid misunderstandings, always get this information in writing.)
