We will have your presentation loaded on the Woodward laptop, which is connected to the projector. If you would prefer to use your own laptop, please let me know ahead of time so we can be prepared! 

Room Setup

Both session rooms have a theater setup with “stadium seating” and long tables for the audience. Speakers will be at the front of the room where there is a podium with laptop and a wireless microphone. Two or three screens will show your presentation. Most often speakers will stand, but we can easily add chairs if you would prefer – just let us know on site.


The session room is equipped with:

  • laptop
  • projector and screens
  • slide advancer
  • microphone and speakers
  • white board
  • flip chart and markers

Please let us know if you will need any other materials provided for you.
