Today's post is a quick reminder of some of the last minute items you will want to run through to make sure are packed or available BEFORE you leave the office:
1. Materials - Is everything you need printed? Do you have instructions printed for any additional activities you may be running?
If you are providing things soft-copy/electronically, do you have enough USB keys to distribute?
Do you have an extra set of materials, just in case?
Enough markers, post its, masking tape?
If using a projector and PowerPoint, have you packed extra batteries?
2. Cords - Do you have all the cords you need? Do the cords really match the materials you are bringing?
3. Food sensitivities - have you checked on, and communicated, all food sensitivities?
4. Resend venue directions
5. Resend a reminder of the start and end times. Also, is breakfast being provided?
These are some of the core reminder areas when you are moving to an offsite. What else do you need to consider?
