Meeting Planner Resources
Sondra realizes that planning a meeting of any size is a complex – and sometimes anxiety-riddled – process. In an effort to make your job easier, we have included here the logistical information meeting planners and clients need to move their planning forward.
- Computer loaded with PowerPoint software. Sondra will e-mail her slides ahead of time for loading and bring them on a flash drive as a back up.
- Remote control for the changing of slides if the computer will be positioned out of reach of the speaker
- LCD projector (and screen). For front-screen projection, please place the projector either near the ceiling or in a corner of the room so that Sondra’s movement will not interfere with the image.
- Wireless lapel microphone
Stage Set-Up Preferences
If Sondra is to be speaking from a stage or elevated platform, please arrange objects on the stage in such a way as to allow her freedom to move around.
One sure way to sabotage the success of a meeting is to have the participants too spread out within a large room. Any effort you can make to have the audience close to the stage and comfortably close to each other will enhance the effectiveness of the presentation.
Because Sondra places a premium on her ability to see and interact with the audience, please keep the lights in the room at a fairly high level.

Sondra’s Arrival Time
Unless the presentation is local to Sondra’s home in San Diego, she will arrive at the meeting location the day before the presentation. In addition, she will be present in the meeting room at least one hour prior to start time to check on equipment and have any last minute conversations with the client.
