I collect tools and resources on a specific page on my website. I continuously strive to update this page and I do. I add everything that I find, work with myself or get advised by others to use.

I always try to keep my presentations as short, snappy and to the point as I possibly can. Since creating presentations take time, and my opinion is that they should be a tool to help you illustrate what you are trying to communicate rather then contain all the communication you wish to do with someone.
If you are lucky enough to get a meeting with someone, then I'm of the opinion that I'm there to make a connection and hopefully sow the seeds for a professional relationship.
