Rich Fettke Room Arrangements and Audio Visual Needs
To help ensure that Rich’s program meets your expectations and brings high value to your audience, please review the requests below and let us know if there are any challenges. Rich is flexible and will work with your A/V capabilities and your technicians to make the most of your program.
We appreciate your attention to detail and your willingness to help Rich create the very best experience for your audience.
- Wireless lavaliere (tie clip) microphone with fresh batteries. (A back-up microphone is also recommended)
- Second microphone (handheld or stationary) for the introducer. It works best if there is no need to “hand off” the lavaliere microphone from the introducer to the speaker.
- DVD player OR a VHS video player and an A/V technician to start and stop the video OR a remote control that Rich can use on stage to start and stop the video. Note: Rich travels with both a DVD and a VHS tape of his video clips.
- LCD projector (1600 lumens minimum) connected to DVD or VHS video player and a large projection screen (12 feet minimum) Projection screen should be large enough to be seen by every audience member.
NOTE: A large screen TV with a DVD or VCR player works for audiences of less than 100.
- The video segments include music – so a sound patch cord from the DVD/VCR player to the room’s sound system will also be required.
- If possible, set the room up theater or classroom style. Position the first row about five to six feet from the stage. Second choice is “U” or “V” shaped and third choice is round tables.
- Stage size and height appropriate for room size. A 2-3 foot riser is recommended for audiences of 50 or more.
- A lectern to the side of the stage with space for an 8.5 x 11-inch notebook
- 2 bottles of water (no ice)
- A bright stage will help keep audience focus at the front of the room. Rich will utilize the entire stage area and will stay toward the front edge. If the room has any spotlights, please aim them for a general wash of the front of the stage (not directly into Rich’s eyes – it’s been done!)
- Lighting: The energy and “connection” in the room are increased when Rich can see the audience and when the audience members can see each other’s reactions. For this reason, please dim the lighting on the video screen(s) but keep the house lights up full.
