I will design my presentation to meet your time frame from 30 minutes to two days. I have the experience to be flexible enough to adapt to your changing needs. I will do whatever I can to work within your time requirements.
I provide complete copies of my presentations slides as handouts and, when appropriate, substantial collateral material. This will be customized with your event or group logo and usually it will be 8-12 pages long depending on the program. I often receive compliments on the completeness and helpfulness of my handouts.
My course notes typically will be emailed to you for copying as PowerPoint document three weeks prior to your event. If preferred, I can simply bring the copies with me at basic reproduction costs. Additionally, I routinely post a link to a .PDF version of the course notes two weeks prior the event.
A data projector with 3000+ lumens output and 1024 x 768 (XGA) resolution with power and connection cables..
A sound patch from my computer to the PA system (mini-plug output) or powered speakers for smaller rooms.
A laptop friendly lectern or a standard skirted rolling AV cart, 42-inch high (1.1M) adjacent to the lectern with AC power for my laptop.*
A wireless lapel microphone (with audiences greater than 50 persons)
AB switch (if an iPad is used).
Wi-Fi connectivity (for some presentations).
*For keynote addresses and large staging sets, a preview monitor at the stage center front apron should be provided. AV equipment I will bring:
I will bring my own laptop computer (1024 x 768 resolution), iPad with dongle (when needed), advance mechanism and laser pointer.
Set up requirements:
I prefer to work from the floor rather than use a stage/riser unless the audience exceeds 200.
The area above the screen needs to be darkened in order to provide good contrast.
I work with a variety of seating configurations depending on your set up needs, but my preferred seating is chevron schoolroom. With a background of 20 years planning large meetings, I can assist with optimal seating configurations for your audience.
Coach airfare and basic travel/meal expenses (nothing extravagant) are charged. Full itemization and receipts are provided. Where applicable, airfare will be shared among clients. Every effort will be made to keep expenses to a bare minimum.
Absolutely! Speaker bureaus typically charge a commission of 25% of a speaker’s fee. I am willing to pay this commission to anyone who refers a client to me resulting in a full-fee speaking booking! So, if you know of someone that could benefit from technology talks that are informative, fun and user-friendly, please help me and I will send you the commission!
Can't accept referral money? I will donate your referral finder's fee to your favorite charity in your name.
I will bring an introduction customized to your group and to the specific topic as standard procedure. This will be printed in a large font for easy reading. I can also email this in advance if desired.
