Everything you need to promote events, or to learn more about them.
Click here for Google Docs with photos, bios, and descriptions of all talks and workshops. I also include notes about AV requirements, but here’s the short version:
I connect my MacBook Pro via HDMI (I have all the ports and a dongle)
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 around 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, so we can optimize for 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.”
For “No slides dinners” for “Netflix: Wicked Hard Decisions” or “How Netflix Built an Innovative Culture,” I need a private room, no screen, but depending on the acoustics of the room, I may need a microphone.
