Successful Event Checklist

Covering the Basics to Make Every Program a Success

Nothing is more important to us than helping to make your event a resounding success. In order to make sure nothing “falls through the cracks” at showtime, we’ve created the following pre-program checklist that will assist us greatly in presenting the best program possible for your group.

Please send us any information such as industry magazines, company history, recent newsletters, or product brochures that will increase Richard Doss' understanding of your organization, its products, people, and challenges. If available, please send us a copy of the program that will be used for this event.

We appreciate your help; please contact us if you have any questions.


We will be sending you first,-class, quality, four-color notecards for each member of the audience.  THESE ARE NOT SALES OR MARKETING PIECES.  This is take-home, valuable information they can use to help increase their success in both their personal and professional life.  We request that you place on chairs and make available.


Please use this to introduce Dr. Doss.  If you have some personal comments you would like to add if you have heard Richard before, just let us know.  Click here to see his intro!


Richard does not speak from a lectern – therefore a clear stage is a must.  Richard’s high energy will keep him moving from one side of the stage to the other.  Plus he may invite audience members on stage as part of his presentation. If it is necessary for a lectern to be on the stage for other parts of the program, please have it set to the side of the stage during his presentation.


With groups of 200 or more, Richard is more visible on a raised platform (12 to 18 inches is fine). Being elevated makes it much easier for everyone to see and enjoy his presentation. Please have steps placed in the front, if possible.


Richard uses a wireless lavalier or head-set microphone. He enjoys being able to move around freely so he can interact personally with your group.

Audio/Visual Aids

Your A/V staff will be happy to learn that Richard will only use limited PowerPoint for his presentation. He does ask that a small HDMI monitor(26-55 inches) be placed where the podium or lecturn would normally be. For Powerpoint, we request a remote pointer.

Head Table

If the head table is on the stage, please have it set far enough back so Richard can work in front of the table. (He needs room to move around and interact with the audience!) Please reserve seats in the audience for the people at the head table so they can enjoy the presentation as well.

Hotel and Travel Arrangements

Hotel room reservations (non-smoking), preferably at the same hotel where the meeting is to be held, are to be secured by you, the client, guaranteed for late arrival, and should be billed directly to your organization. Richard Doss will be responsible for travel arrangements, non-refundable, (non-stop, when possible) coach fare, round-trip from Chicago, Illinois.

Ground Transportation

Please arrange ground transportation (to and from the airport) and let our office know who will be meeting Richard. Please advise if car rental is preferred.

Payment of Fee

Per the agreement, please remember that the entire fee is due on-site, immediately following Richard Doss' presentation. An invoice (with the exception of jobs through a speakers’ bureau), including travel expenses and per diem, will be mailed prior to the engagement.

Please remember: Audio or video recording of the presentation, in part or whole, by the client for private or other distribution is prohibited and is NOT a part of OUR AGREEMENT.

Once you’ve taken care of each of these items, you can be assured that everything will run smoothly–now YOU can relax and let Richard Doss do the rest!
