MICROPHONE. I have a weak voice and need a microphone if there are more than 20 people in the audience, please. I prefer a wireless (lapel) microphone if available.
LAPTOP. I will run my PowerPoint show from my PC laptop. It has a built-in HDMI connection. I will bring my own remote to advance my slides. Please provide a lectern, podium, or table to place my laptop (not the projector cart).
PROJECTOR AND CABLING. Please provide an EXTRA-LONG HDMI cable run from the projector up to the stage or front of the room where I’ll be speaking. I need to be able to touch my laptop from the front of the room to show videos and websites. I can’t leave my laptop in the back of the room with the projector.
SCREEN. Please set the projector and screen to the side of the stage (if not built in), versus on it or behind it.
BOOK TABLE. If I’m bringing books (or you pre-purchased them), please provide an additional table in the back of the room where we can set them up. We will provide the credit card reader and handle the sales. I will happily autograph books. We do not “sell” books but take donations only (suggested $20 donation).
LIGHTS. Please raise the house lights as high as they can go, even if the screen looks slightly dimmer. I love energy, and a dim room promotes sleepiness.
WATER. Please provide a couple bottles of room temperature water.
BACKUP. I will bring a thumb drive with my slides as a backup.
