Tech Check – get ready for that meeting

I was working with a team the other day and the conversation turned to technology mess-ups in meetings and how disruptive this is.

  1. OK, I said what do you need to check? Here is what we came up with:
  2. Wi-Fi – will there be a connection in the room?
  3. Cables – do you have all your leads?
  4. Dongles for your mobile Wi-Fi
  5. Beamer Projector – will they have one?
  6. Thumb Drive with spare copy of my presentation
  7. Take a Backup PC – if the meeting is that importantteck prep
  8. Battery Charger and is your battery charged!
  9. Giveaways for the delegates? Sweeteners and leave-behinds
  10. Clean Desktop – move all the icons off the desktop into one folder
  11. Skype and other alerts on your PC turned off.
  12. Browser Bar clean and tidy if you are doing a demo
  13. Clickers and mice to hand and with fresh batteries
  14. Software malware checked – if needs by
  15. Water – (for your body technology)
