Room Set-up and A/V Needs for Jim Snack
Stage: For audiences over 80 people, a raised platform at least 8' x 12' in size is recommended (prefer 12' x 16'). The height should be appropriate for the audience size (approximately 9" rise for every 100 people). Try to place the first row of seats within 3 feet of the stage. If other speakers are using a podium or lectern, place it off to one side, so Jim can walk in front of it. Jim does not use a podium.
Microphones: Jim needs a hands free, lapel style microphone. He can use one you provide or he can bring his own which plugs into the house PA system. It is recommended that you have a different microphone for other speakers and/or the person introducing Jim.
Chairs: 4 chairs onstage. They should be straight-backed, with no arms. The ideal chair is a stackable one, although folding chairs can work in a pinch.
Lighting: General stage wash. Most action will take place in center stage; spotlights should be focused center. Jim's programs are not designed for low light situations. If projection is used (see below), the lights should be shuttered off the projection screen.
For some programs, Jim will need a projector for Power Point slides. Please call prior to the program to see which, if any, will be needed.
Introduction: A company representative to read a printed introduction.
Other: For half and full day training sessions, please provide a flipchart with markers.
