100% of Merit’s focus is on your attendees. Great care is taken well in advance to make sure your meeting is designed for success from the pre-program questionnaire to the room set-up, audio visuals, lighting, customized materials and event web page.

Please send us any information such as industry magazines, corporate annual reports, recent newsletters, product brochures, relevant web sites to investigate and anything else that will help Merit understand your group. Most importantly, please let us know of any meeting theme and all program details for the event.

Merit’s programs connect with attendees because she takes the time to interview 3 – 7 people in advance of the program. Stories from your industry will be incorporated into the presentation and when possible Merit may highlight specific sponsors, members or employees as positive examples. For this reason, it is imperative that Merit have contact names, phone numbers and email addresses for 7-10 people that represent a cross section of veterans, newbies, job titles, levels of experience, etc.

Click here for Merit’s Pre-Program Questionnaire. You can easily fill it out on-line & email it directly to Merit, or you can print the MS Word version and email, mail or fax it back. Feel free to skip questions that are irrelevant to your group.
