Being an effective speaker is much more than flipping through a fancy PowerPoint filled with facts and figures. Good presenters are engaging, exciting, and connect with the audience while getting their point across. Whether you’re a traveling presenter who speaks at many conferences a year or someone like me who has does a few smaller presentations a year, you know that engaging the audience and teaching them something are the goals of our presentation.

The first time I used my Redcat Presenter Kit was in dramatic circumstances. I was preparing to deliver a course on presentation skills for a corporate meeting, and I had 100 sales people flying in from all over the world. I had a two-hour session scheduled, but I got laryngitis the weekend before. I went to my doctor, who said he could give me something that might allow me to speak—but it had the risk of causing long-term damage.

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.

How My School Uses Redcat:
As a high school English teacher, my lessons frequently involve class discussions with most of the comments made by students. For example, I recently used the Redcat when discussing chapters in the novel The Catcher in the Rye. I asked my students questions, then I then passed around the microphone so everyone in the room was able to clearly hear their comments, answers, and responses.
