Public Speaking Course:
Room Setup Trick
In my public speaking course I give you some tips that will help you when setting up your room: Ask someone from the wait staff or hotel maintenance crew what some of the problems with the room might be.
They might point you to a light switch they have problems with or some other annoying problem that you would have otherwise never noticed. They know the rooms and their advance warning will give you a chance to figure out a way to handle the problem. Chances are they won't offer their advice unless you ask. Asking questions before your presentation is key to your public speaking success.
