THE ESSENTIAL QUESTION
This may already describe your presentation, but it’s worth reiterating that presentations should focus on practical solutions for sustainability.

PRESENTATION TIPS
Looking for presentation ideas?  Here’s content to consider:  a brief overview, list of features, description, best practices, goals, results, interesting facts, an interesting story, strategies, local resources, etc.

AUDIENCE
Our conference audiences are professionals and learners from government, grassroots, business, and education. People at all levels – from mayors to students – attend our conferences.  Our 2016 conference gathered 320 people from 9 states, 30 campuses, 35 nonprofits, 35 businesses, 60 Massachusetts communities, and more.

LOGISTICS
Suggestion:  Walk your route in advance to plan your one hour tour.
Identify specific places where you will stop and speak.
Face your group when you speak, so they can hear you.
Ask someone in your group to be the timekeeper so you end on time.

MEDIA & RELEASE
By agreeing to participate in this conference you agree to photos & videos for news and promotions.

NO HANDOUTS
In keeping with our environmental mission and reduced materials goal, do not bring printed handouts.  If you have something you want people to read, email it to me before or after the conference.  I will post it on our website, www.MaSustainableCommunities.com.  Our participants often ask for info after the conference and it is appreciated.

No soliciting.  No exceptions.  Exchanging business cards while networking is fine.

BYOBeverage
