Who's the boss? You are!

Survey the organization I have two questionnaires: one is about the company in general and how my presentation fits into the overall theme of the conference or training, and the other is a questionnaire for individuals who will be attending my workshop, to find out what their public speaking needs are. These two questionnaires form the bulk of information I receive about a speaking engagement. If you need the organization to make copies of your handouts, say so.
