When using Power Point or any other form of visuals for a speech, arrive at your club early and test the equipment. Don’t take chances that all will be OK, remember fail to plan and you plan to fail!

Bulbs blow on overhead projectors, laptops need the right connection, so give yourself time to set up. That way when you deliver your speech the equipment will not let you down and the audience will enjoy the presentation without any hiccups.
