Does the thought of technology glitches during your sales presentation cause you anxiety?

Everything will go just fine as long as you practice beforehand and you’re self sufficient. Bring your own cables. It’s the best way to make sure your device connects to their big screen. 

If you need internet, don’t rely on their wifi. Be ready to use your own cellular service as a personal hotspot. 

If you’re using audio, bring your own speaker. Bring a backup on a flash drive. This also helps if you have to use different computer. 

And in case all else fails, bring a print out of your presentation. You’ll be able to use this as your speaking notes or as a handout. 

The key to dealing with technical difficulties is to be prepared, stay calm and remember you got this!
