Have you ever found yourself in this situation? You agree to give a presentation at a big conference and spend weeks creating the perfect PowerPoint. You practice until you can recite your speech in your sleep. You arrive at the venue to discover you are presenting in a large room with no AV connector for your Laptop or audio equipment available. Or maybe the venue does provide a projector or audio system but when you arrive, the AV technician or engineer is nowhere to be found and you are left to fend for yourself, fumbling with cords and speakers while the crowd anxiously awaits your presentation.
You find yourself asking – “Anyone in the audience know how to get this system working?”
Technology mishaps are a presenter’s worst nightmare. All the time and energy you spent preparing is wasted because the audience can’t see your visuals and/or can’t hear your voice. Today’ smart presenters are investing in their own traveling presenter kits to prevent technological mishaps during presentations, and to avoid the stress and hassle of using rental equipment and working with AV technicians.
Here are the top 5 items you should have in your traveling presenter kit.
With experience, you may add a few other bells and whistles to make your kit as individual as your presentations, but these are the essentials of a traveling presenter kit. With your own equipment, you can be sure that the technological portion of any presentation will be professional and stress-free.
