Worried that your next event won’t go as smoothly as you’d like it to? We understand that putting on a presentation in a room full of people can be stressful, so we’ve put together some pro tips to help you out. See below and be sure to watch our latest YouTube video to learn more!
Pro Tip #1 – CONFIDENCE MONITORS
The most well-rehearsed, and well-informed presentations can appear sloppy and uncoordinated if you are turning your back to the audience, leaving the microphone, and pausing to refer to slides on a screen behind you.
Adding a confidence monitor to your layout will allow the ability to refer to your slides and notes directly in front of you, having constant access to your content without ever showing the crowd your bad side.
Pro Tip #2 – STAGING
A panel or two of staging in a smaller venue can be crucial for turning an intimate room into a bona fide event space.
Restaurants and other public meeting places are great for creating a unique and memorable experience for your audience; our staging will ensure that the experience is effective, as well. Plan your event in your favorite locations with confidence, knowing that your voice will be heard, and your face seen.

Get the sweats? Clammy palms? Can’t stop tapping your foot? If you have a fear of public speaking or presenting you know all about how stressful getting up in front of an audience can be. And while they may not completely cure your nervous symptoms, these three secrets can help make your presentation a successful one.
Make It Understandable
Have you ever listened to somebody speak to an audience where you weren’t able to understand their message? Your crowd will be much more engaged if your presentation is free of jargon, buzzwords, complexity and confusion. So how can you make it happen? Think of it like Twitter, you only have a 140 character limit (although this won’t actually be the case).
Make It Memorable
How can you say your presentation was a success if the audience can’t remember what you spoke about? Try to incorporate the rule of three. We tend to only remember three to seven points in the short term so if you can limit your presentation to three major points, or group your content into threes, there’s a much better chance they will be able to recall what you said down the road.
Make It Emotional
We don’t mean that you have to make every member of the audience leave in tears or have them laughing at everything you say. But you should appeal to their emotions – it’s a great way to get them to lock in on what you’re presenting. You can do this by telling a story, but make sure it relates in some way to a main point of your presentation.
While we can’t write the actual script for you, the experts at CitiView Audio Visual can supply you with everything else you need. From staging and lighting to screen rentals and audio/visual equipment – we’ve got you covered! Give us a call today at 212-632-5196 to learn more about our services.
Live streaming is the way of the future. We’ve seen it with red carpet events, professional sports and even seminars and business meetings. So why should you stream your next event? Find out below:
Reach a Larger Audience
You can turn your small meeting into a grand event with live streaming. If you have an important message you want to broadcast to people all over the map, it’s not a possibility. The days of pitching your ideas to a few coworkers in an office’s conference room are over. The same idea goes for presentations, fashion shows and the like!
Another benefit of live streaming is the ability to engage with your audience. With no delay, your viewers can participate in live chat and ask questions. You then have the ability to respond to their questions right away.
What Do You Need?
In order to stream your event, you will need a couple of things. First, you’ll need a camera. You’ll also need an encoder and fast upload speed to eliminate the risk of glitches and lags. Finally, you are going to need a streaming service and if all of that sounds like too much for you, don’t worry – we’ll take care of the entire set up for you!
At CitiView Audio Visual, live streaming is one of our specialties. Call us at 212-632-5196 the next time you are preparing for an event, and leave the rest to us!
