    What are your AV and staging requirements?

    AV equipment to be provided:

    • A data projector with 3000+ lumens output and 1024 x 768 (XGA) resolution with power and connection cables..
    • A screen
    • 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.
