ROOM SETUP
  • The distance from the first row of seats/tables to the stage should be as small as possible.
  • If a lectern/podium is being used for introductions or other presenters, please set it a few feet back from the front of the stage to allow me to move in front of the lectern during my presentation.
  • If possible, the screen should not be positioned in the center of the room directly behind the speaker.
  • If the room uses spotlights, aim them toward the very front of the stage – not just the lectern, I tend to use all of the stage. The spotlights should not be directed toward the screen or they will wash out the images being projected. If the screen(s) in the room are placed directly below room lights, those lights should be dimmed or the bulbs should be removed to assure the images on the screen are as bright as possible.
