Public Speaking Course:
Room Setup Trick
Here's a good article from my public speaking course to help you set up your
room properly. Try asking someone from the setup crew or wait staff if there are
any problems with your room that they can point out to you beforehand.
They could show you a light switch that doesn't work right or some other
annoying problem that you would have never known about. The setup crew will know
the rooms better than you do and their advance warning will give you a chance to
figure out a way to handle the problem. Chances are they won't offer their
knowledge to you unless you ask. Asking questions before your presentation is
key to your public speaking success.
