Pre-Visit Checklist

It is best to come as prepared as possible. This allows the consultant to focus on your questions and the Speaking Center visit to be more productive. To make sure you get the most out of your session, complete the following steps before you come to the Speaking Center.

We ask that you come to the Speaking Center at least two days prior to your presentation so that you have time to make any changes.

Before you come to the Speaking Center, always ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I know where the Speaking Center is?
  • Does my professor want me to visit the Speaking Center by a certain date?
  • What special information about my class do I need to tell the consultant?
  • Is my appointment at least two days prior to my presentation?

If you need help with writing your presentation, complete this checklist:

  • I have my outline with me.
  • I have completed my outline as much as possible.
  • I have identified some questions regarding my outline.
  • I have my assignment with me.

If you need help with delivery of a speech, complete this checklist:

  • I have my note cards.
  • I have all of my visual aids.
  • I have identified any questions I need to ask the consultant before I present my speech.
  • I have my assignment with me.
