Empowered Presentations’ “Tool Belt” For Presenters


Empowered Presentations has done it again!  I loved the idea of gathering a “tool belt” comprised of 10 things we should carry with us for every presentation.  EP suggests presenters carry the following: post-its, a Mac, Keynote, a projector, speakers, a smartphone, a clicker, water, confidence, and handouts.  Check out their Slideshare deck below:


I would definitely agree with all 10 of these items and add a whiteboard and markers.  Sometimes, I think it’s important to ditch the slideshow, especially if an important question is raised by someone in the audience.  A whiteboard is a must.

What items would you add to a “tool belt” for presenters?

  1. Thanks for sharing this!! My presentations are usually trainings. So, in addition to the above I always have my dongle (just in case I have to use someone else’s laptop or computer), a flash drive with back up copies of presentations, and candy!!! Participants love candy giveaways!!
