Consider the lefties at your conference

They may number less than 10 percent of the population, but do you ever think about accommodating the needs of the left-handed people at your conference? It hadn't crossed my mind until I ran across BuzzFeed's list of the 18 worst things for left-handed people. At the top of the list are spiral notebooks, three-ring binders, and ballpoint pens&3151;ubiquitous giveaways at most of the conferences I've attended. And what about the rounds used for most meals at conferences? There's no corner to sit at to keep from bonking elbows with righties.

The least you could do would be to hand out some of these SmudgeGuard Tablet Gloves, right?
