Lectern – In Back – In Front – or Move It

Move-the-lectern_1For a new speaker, the lectern can be a great hiding place. You can physically hide most of your body, you have your notes right in front of you and to prevent your shaking you can always grab onto it for support.

For an advanced speaker however, the lectern becomes a barrier. It keeps you away from the audience and doesn’t let you use your full range of vocal expression and body movement. If you get out in front of the lectern a good part of your audience is now looking at your back.  What to do?

Karen show us one innovative solution.
She moved the lectern back and out of the way.
This way she can still have her full range of motion and involvement with the audience, but still can be seen by the entire audience – Very Creative!
