  3. Bring a single flyer with big, bold letters including your Name, Phone & Email as well as your Haves and Wants. We will digitally project your flyer up on the big screen, so avoid fine print that will be difficult for the audience to read.

  5. Remember, you can bring business cards and additional flyers with more detailed information for display on the flyer table and for further discussion during the networking session.
