Luncheon Speaker Challenge: Where to Stand

Luncheon Speaker Challenge: Where to Stand 

Luncheon is not a formal meeting where the audience sits in one place and the rostrum or podium is set so the speaker is center of attention.  Instead, configuration of tables makes it difficult to find a central place to stand so you are in command of all the audience.

Clever strategy is to let your host know in advance that you will be using a slide presentation such as PowerPoint with a projector.   That forces the room to have a focal point.  That focal point is where you stand in order to use your visuals.

Importantly, if you decide you won’t use visuals, don’t tell anyone until the room has already been set up.  Thus you’ll still have the spot you need to be center of attention.
