What is the best way to set up the room?
A raised platform is preferred if you have more than 50 people. This will give audience members a clear, unobstructed view of Matthew during his presentation.
If a lectern or head table is part of your meeting, please make sure there is ample room for Mathew to stand near the audience. He will not be speaking from a lectern.
If you have agenda items lasting more than 30 minutes prior to Matthew’s presentation, consider giving the audience a brief stretch break before introducing Matthew.
Set chairs to face the longest wall (i.e., set the room wide, not narrow).
Do not use a center aisle (prime viewing space). Instead, use two smaller aisles on either side of the center and chevron the seats.
Stagger the chairs. Don’t put one chair directly behind the other. If you stagger each row, audience members won’t have someone’s head right in front of them to block the view.
Seat the audience as close to each other and close to Matthew (six feet if possible) with each chair facing center stage. Match the number of chairs to the number of people; keep extra chairs stacked up at the back of the room to avoid empty seats.
Make sure the entire room is well lit, especially the stage area. If spotlights are available, please consider firing them up! When the presenter is illuminated more than the audience, listeners can hear better and are less distracted.
