=> Be down to earth. Nobody likes the aloof talking head.

=> Phone as many attendees as you can before the program and ask
their opinions. Use the information to make them the stars.

=> Mingle with attendees before the program and make small talk
like telling them Tom is single. The personal connection goes a
long way.

=> Thoroughly research the problems of the group and bring
immediately usable solutions. They can’t help but like you when
you help them out.

=> Stay as long as you can after the program. If you can arrange
it, don’t run out the door and leave them cold. If you have to
leave, offer email follow up for any unanswered questions.
