I bring and use my own laptop for presentations. This saves worrying about software and formatting variables. I'll bring a VGA adapter and should be able to plug into your projector or A/V system.
I won't need to stand at the computer while presenting, but will want to be able to see the display. The setup shown to the right isn't the only one possible, but it's simple and it works.
Please be sure the projector is bright enough and the ambient lighting can be made low enough that the presentation can be seen.
A sound system or speakers help with a couple of video clips in the presentation but aren't necessary.
I appreciate the interest in the presentation and hope these notes make it easy to prepare for it. Please feel free to be in touch with any questions.
