Please take a few moments to read through the items on this page. It will save you considerable time, and enhance the quality of your event.
For the best quality use an external mic and camera.
Please use an external mic!
Put simply, a mic needs to be within 6-8 inches of your mouth to be effective. That rules out laptop, desktop computer mics, and in-built mics on cameras.
Options include (in order of preference):
Please use an external cam!
Put simply, your laptop / desktop built-in camera / web-cam isn’t going to cut it. The camera in a modern smart phone will vastly outperform any of the above – so use it. And you already own it!
You will need to use an app (software) to enable your Mac or PC to use your smart phone camera. I use “Camo”. See below…
“Camo Pro” Software
There is a Free and Pro version and you will need the Pro version for the better resolution it provides but at less than $5 for a month it’s worth investing in at least for one month. Because as L’oreal says ‘You’re worth it’. Use with your original or good quality USB lead.
I have a professional external camera setup also, but for most events I just use my iPhone 13. As long as you plug it in with a good cable it’s reliable.

Why we don’t record through Zoom

No good event ever happened without at least one rehearsal.
Any quality speaker would rehearse at least once. So let’s take full advantage of this, and record it, here’s why;
No full rehearsal:
It’s not possible to do a full rehearsal for these types of events because they are usually based on the guest / audience interactions.
If our first event together I recommend a tech check before the Go-Live date.
We will need to connect a minimum of 30 mins before the go-live time to allow me to setup correctly.
Note: I will need every minute of this to connect video streams, do mic-level checks, setup streaming, etc. There will not be any time for us to ‘discuss’ the event, that needs to be done in advance.
We’ve created this at-a-glance checklist to help you. Please download and use.
