For Haile Gerima
Please review this in detail so we can make your engagement run as smoothly as possible.
SOUND CHECK: The speaker arrives to the event room about one hour before the presentation for A/V check. It is requested that someone be present for this sound check and during the first five minutes of the presentation to double check that things are working properly.
MICROPHONE: The speaker appreciates a wireless clip-on/lapel microphone (especially for keynotes and large rooms). If possible, have a wireless handheld microphone available for back up. As a last resort a corded microphone with at least 50 feet of cord and a microphone stand works.
SCREEN & PROJECTOR: Please provide an LCD Projector for use with laptop and PowerPoint slide presentation and a screen large enough for all to see in the room. (A wall is fine as well.) No speakers are needed.
COMPUTER: The speaker brings his/her laptop computer and remote. His/her presentation is also available in advance or on a flash drive.
LIGHTING: Please make sure that the stage and the audience are well lit.
WORKSHOP ROOM SETUP: White board or flip chart with markers, six foot table and one chair at the front of room. Seating classroom style, horse shoe style or u-shape based on the room and projected audience. There should be enough room for interactive activities.
KEYNOTE ROOM SETUP: Please sit audience directly in front of the speaker. If using an auditorium, an extremely well lit, open and empty stage is preferred. If using a gymnasium or meeting room without a stage please provide a stage or riser in front of the audience so the speaker can be seen. If using a gymnasium, please seat the audience on one side only, with the remainder of the audience on the gym floor or in chairs. A six foot table and one chair should be on the stage or riser for the speaker’s materials.
WATER: Two (2) bottles of water should be provided for the speaker at the front of the room. It is also recommended that water be provided for the audience.
HANDOUTS/MATERIALS: If applicable to the program, the speaker brings his/her own quality handouts and learning materials for the expected audience. Costs for all handouts and materials are included in the program fees.
EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS: Additional educational materials are available on request. Discounts are available for large orders. The speaker reserves the right to sell product.
PHOTOGRAPHY, AUDIO OR VIDEO TAPING: The school/client is given permission to photograph, audio and/or video tape the performance. The school/client will send digital copies of such to Nommo Speakers Bureau and all parties are free to utilize the materials for promotional purposes.
