Audio Visual Setup and Requirements

Video requirements

I use a MacBook Pro or an iPad, for both of which I have HDMI adaptors. For most meetings a standard projector and screen is fine, or large flat screen TV.
I have a “clicker” to change my slides, so for most presentations my laptop can be near the projector. I don’t need it on stage with me, and I prefer not to have a podium so I can walk the width of the stage/room.
A large flat screen is fine for small groups, trainings and mastermind meetings.

Audio/Microphone requirements

For any group over 20 people a PA system with wireless lavaliere or headset microphone is required. A secondary, wireless handheld microphone, is helpful for announcements and audience participation, especially in larger room setups.
I usually don’t have any sound coming from my laptop, but please check with me first as, depending upon the presentation, there may be a video or other sound needs.

Audio Recording

I sometimes do an audio recording of my presentations using a small, digital recorder. I’ll bring the necessary cables to connect to the sound board. If you’ll already be making an audio/video recording (with prior written authorization, of course), we can arrange to get me a copy instead.

Website presentations with Live Website Reviews

For website presentations where I’ll be reviewing attendee’s websites I’ll need a strong wi-fi connection, and my laptop will need to be onstage, or at the front of the room on a podium or high-top table.

I really enjoyed you energy and enthusiasm. There was so much good information and advice I hope to implement at least 1/2 of it. We will be contacting you in the future to discuss web site analysis.” – Feedback left on Square – read more reviews

Room Setup

Conferences & Workshops

For most presentations I prefer classroom style setup (narrow rectangles) so participants can take notes. If you don’t have classroom tables then banquet rounds are fine as long as they are only set halfway around, so no one has their back to the stage/screen.

For large conferences, classroom is preferred for longer presentations, or where attendees will be taking notes. Otherwise, theater style seating is acceptable.

Mastermind Days & Master Classes

For Mastermind Groups, Master Classes and for groups of 12-20 a “U”-shape is preferred as everyone has a front row seat. The projector/screen should be setup in the open end of the “U.”

For small groups (12 or less), including small mastermind groups, a boardroom setup is fine (one, large table with a large TV or screen and projector at the front).

Display Table

Where possible, I’ll need a table to display my books and CDs. A 6 or 8 foot, draped table is fine. It should be placed in the presentation room in an area of high traffic (near the front of the room, neat the door, near the coffee, etc.).

If you have any questions about room set up, please contact me via email, text, use the short form on this page, or call 732.422.6362, international enquiries 001 732 422 6362.
