Review the Assignment
The Consultant will spend time with you discussing the purpose and requirements for your assignment/presentation. If you are working on an assignment for class, it is important to bring the assignment given by your professor. If you have any other information that will help the Consultant understand the purpose and specific requirements of your assignment, also please bring that with you to the appointment.
Discuss the Assignment and Goals
The Consultant will discuss the assignment and your goals for the appointment. It is helpful if you come to the appointment with an idea of what you would like to accomplish during the session. During your discussion, the Consultant will also help you define the areas that you would like to work on during the session, whether it is brainstorming an idea, topic development, research, organization, or help with delivery skills.

Your consultant will discuss with you, strategies and techniques that will strengthen both the assignment you are presently working on and your overall skills as a presenter.
