    I have been out of the PC loop for a while and thinking about starting back up. What is the booking slide? I have seen pics and posts but how does it actually work? How is it "assembled"??

    I'm confused :confused:

    Thanks a bunch in advance!

    There's some great ideas that are shared in the threads listed below here, you might want to read through some.

    It's a great thing to present because it gets their attention and it explains all the benefits of having a show and helps so you don't forget anything.

    I printed mine on bright colored paper (different colors for each page), then had the guy at Office Max laminate them. I used our discount there and it was very reasonable. Then I taped them with packing tape so they'd all be connected.

    Thanks! So do you hold it up at your shows? Pass it around?

    You present it in front of the group. You say something like "I put this little visual together to help show you all the benefits you get for hosting a show" Then you hold the top page and let all the others drop down (it's connected accordian style so they flip out and are together). It's big and it gets their attention and I usually giggle along with them about it. :)

    On Consultant's Corner, under the "Consultant and Leadership Training" tab, select the second option - "Now more than ever...". Then a video will start playing with Marla G. On the right side of that video pane are several other videos you can select. Scroll down and select "Denise Hess, Director - New Albany, IN". She shows how she uses it- and that's sort of the "standard" idea...but you can do what you need to make it your own!

    I also did like a few others mentioned- I printed mine on colored paper. I used light-pastels (nothing too bright) and alternated the colors. I had them laminated at Office Max (with my PC discount- don't forget that!), and then taped them together with packing tape (leave a small gap so you can fold them up). I also typed up the slide pages so that I could print them on half-the size of paper- so I have a full size 8 1/2" x11" size and then one that's 4"x11" that I can take with me to booths, or that isn't TALLER than me. :D I'm just getting my cooking shows back into the swing- so I can't say yet how they work for me. I've survived on Catalog and Individual orders the last many months.

    From experience I can tell you that this is much less impressive then you flip it open to reveal . . . the blank side. I then corrected it, only to find the crowd laughing because, while they could now see the words, everything was upside down. It wasn't one of my finer moments, but it made everyone laugh.

    You probably got their attention more than if you had done it the right way!

    When I use the slide I don't drop it but kind of throw it out in a swoosh. It makes a really cool noise.

    That's what I do. I can't just drop it because it's taller than I am.

    I don't drop mine, I just flip mine since it is taller than me and it just feels weird to me that way.

    I'm curious how the "professionally printed" booking slide from HO looked from the promo last month. Anyone have any pictures?
