Whether we like doing it or not, presenting is a foundational element of countless positions within both education and business. It’s how we get ideas across, how we communicate to large groups and more, but that doesn’t make it any easier.
There are, however, certain tools we can use to make the process just that little bit easier. The biggest of which is, of course, a lectern.
Used in one form or another for centuries, lecterns are the focal point for any speech and an invaluable element of a proper presentation, but when it comes to buying lecterns for your educational establishment or business, it can be hard to know exactly what you need.
As a leading supplier of lecterns to schools, colleges, universities and businesses across the country, we know a thing about lecterns. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you find the right lecterns for your establishment.
Know your Budget
Like anything in life, it always pays to keep an eye on the budget when you’re buying. It’s no different with lecterns, which come at a variety of price points, depending on what features you’re looking for.
So, whilst a business might opt for a top of the range AV04 Lectern with lockable cupboard, cable management, drop down shelf and computer support, an educational establishment with lower demands on their lecterns might choose from more modest models. It’s all a matter of knowing what you need, what you want and what you can afford.
Know your Audience
In business, presentation is everything. If a company is going to invest in your ideas, it requires the confidence that you can come through, and that you’re worth their time. As such, getting out in an unsuitable lectern or, worse still, no lectern at all simply isn’t advisable.
For educational purposes though, the requirements are less strict, and a lower-end lectern can be used.
Know your Requirements
Going to be using a laptop in your presentation? Handling a great deal of information as you speak? Running a microphone from the lectern? All of these questions need to be answered before you buy a lectern in order to ensure that you get a lectern which not only looks superb, but performs superbly too.
There’s a huge variety of lecterns available from KPMS, and each boasts a specific use case in which they can thrive. Do your research, take your time and soon enough, you’ll have a complete picture of what you need.
