dress formally but don't come in your weekend clothes wither. Business
causal is best.
P - Practiced Presentation - You have to practice your "30 second" talking points.
Imagine you're in an elevator and you have just 30 seconds with this person.
They have to walk away with the most important facts of your work. Practice
is the only way you will have it down cold.
