Click here for everything you need to promote events: photos, bios, plus descriptions of all talks and workshops. I also included notes about AV requirements, but here’s the short version:
I connect my MacBook Pro via HDMI (I have all the ports)
My presentations have no sound/video
I prefer a Lavalier microphone. I wander the room a bit and do not need a podium.
I have my own clicker
I prefer a monitor that I can see while facing the audience so I don’t have to turn to see the slides. I don’t use speaker notes so it should be a “mirror” of my slides.
It’s nice to have a visible clock in the room so I can track the time.
If you need to download presentations to a machine in advance, I will share the presentation via Dropbox — just let me know. But make sure you install the correct fonts and that you have Keynote on a Mac.
Recording and sharing videos is fine, and the more photos the better! If you want a great video edit, have the video peeps compare notes with me. Also good if the photographer says “hello” as I can give them tips on how to get great photos.
If there is an online audience, let me know, as there are things we can do to optimize the remote experience.
I generally do ten minutes of Q & A at the end of my talks and if the room needs microphones, it’s good to have “runners'“ with microphones or a “Throw Mic.”
If you’d like to arrange a talk or workshop with me, you can contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can also learn more about my background by clicking below:
