Room Set up Requirements

For a visual of Kevin's typical room set up, click here for Sample Room Set Up .

If the audience's chairs are chevroned rather than in straight rows, facing the stage they will be more comfortable.

Light = Energy. An especially well lit speaker area is a must. Keep the room as bright as practical except when showing videos.

Kevin prefers to work from the floor rather than use a stage/riser unless the audience exceeds 200. If a platform is needed, please make it an o pen platform with NO head table, steps for front access, lectern to one side for the introducer to use.

Use the largest screen practical and position it off the stage in a darkened area or use rear screen projection. Additionally, the area above the screen needs to be darkened in order to provide good contrast.

A variety of seating configurations do work, but the preferred seating arrangement is chevron schoolroom with a center aisle. Kevin walks into the audience during his presentations.

Needed for placement of laptop, along with aiding the person who will introduce Kevin.

6ft Draped Table: On stage for speaker's notes or props.

A cool room produces an alert audience; a warm room produces a drowsy audience. A cold room produces a distracted audience; a hot room produces an irritable audience. The actual room temperature should be somewhere between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit.
