Roger Rickard

How long are your presentations?
We will design the presentation to meet your time frame from 30 minutes to all day. We have the experience to be flexible enough to adapt to your changing needs and will do whatever we can to work within your time requirements.
What are your AV and staging requirements?
We provide our own laptop computer (1024 x 768 resolution), advance mechanism and laser pointer.

Set up requirements:

  • We prefer to work from the floor rather than use a stage/riser unless the audience exceeds 300. The area above the screen needs to be darkened in order to provide good contrast with the presentation.
  • We have worked with a variety of seating configurations; however, our preferred seating is in rounds of eight.
  • This can be changed depending on the program and size of the group.
  • Through our background of planning meetings and events over the past several years, we can assist with optimal seating configurations for your audience.

AV equipment:

  • A data projector (DLP or LCD) with 1200+ lumens output and 1024 x 768 (XGA) resolution.
  • A screen compatible to both the size of the room and group.
  • A standard skirted rolling AV cart, 42-inch high (1.1M) – This is used instead of a lectern.
  • A wireless lapel microphone (with audiences greater than 50 persons).
  • A wireless handheld microphone (with audiences greater than 50 persons).
  • AC power to the lectern (the cart) and to the data projector.
  • A sound patch from my computer to the PA system (mini-plug output). This is optional with some programs.
  • A computer-projector connecting cable (up to 25 ft. or 8 meters long depending on
  • room size).
What are your speaking fees?
The speaking fee depends on a number of different factors, type and length of presentation, location and any additional services while on location. For that, I will give you a 100% satisfaction guarantee. You will be delighted with the presentation or your money back. A 50% deposit is required to secure booking dates.
How do you handle expenses?
Coach airfare and basic travel/meal expenses (nothing extravagant) are charged. Full itemization and receipts are provided. Where applicable, airfare will be shared among clients. Every effort will be made to keep expenses to a bare minimum.
Can you send a biography, introduction and photo?
