Room and Audio-Visual Requirements

Even the greatest speech can be viewed as ineffective when the room set-up is not optimal. To help ensure that Jim’s program meets your expectations and fulfills the ultimate benefit of your audience, please review the A/V requests below and let us know if there are any challenges. We will work with your A/V capabilities and your technicians to maximize the effectiveness of your platform.

countryman-microphoneEquipment:

  • Wireless ear set Countryman microphone
    If this is not available, please have a wireless lavaliere (tie clip) microphone.
  • Mr. DeCicco will bring music on a flash drive for your technician to play

Staging:

  • For keynote speeches, please provide a large cocktail table with bottle water and fresh flowers.
  • For workshop, please provide a large cocktail table with bottle water and fresh flowers. A Podium and a high bar stool with back and hand rest.

Room Environment:

A bright stage will help keep audience focus at the front of the room. Jim will utilize the entire stage area and will stay toward the front edge. If the room has any spotlights, please aim them for a general wash of the front of the stage.

People are more alert in brightness. Dim the lighting on the screens but keep the house lights up full.

Temperature:

A cool room produces an alert audience, a warm room produces a drowsy audience. A cold room produces a distracted audience, and a hot room produces an irritated audience. The actual room temperature should be somewhere between 68-70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Greenroom:

Please stock the greenroom with quality bottled water, organic fresh fruit, and protein energy bars or cheese and crackers.
