Visuals Go a Long Way:

While it isn’t crucial to have a PowerPoint, a few slides with some visuals or a handout is helpful for people to visualize what you are looking to communicate. IF you do have a presentation, please send it to Kenny [at] RockMyImage.com for review a couple days before the event so we can be sure to work out any potential technical difficulties.
