4 tips when presenting on large stages

I recently delivered a closing keynote on a large stage for 2000 people and there are interesting things to take note:

1. The clicker that you use will not be yours but a simple box that can just go next and back. This is because it has an amazing range but it can’t blank the screen like normal ones. (Picture of the clicker is above).

2. Don’t always talk to the audience, talk to the camera. They can see you look straight into their eyes.

3. Any movement should be big so that they can see you from far and on the screen.

4. The format for most large screens is usually 16:9, you can easily convert to that with your presentation software but it is much longer. Your pictures you use might be stretched so look at the resolution carefully. What looks ok on your screen might not do well on big screens.
