Speaking FAQ

1. What electronic/presentation equipment does Steven require and or travel with?
This depends on the type of presentation chosen by you. Equipment and presentation equipment often used: Video projector, laptop computer, powerpoint software, hand-outs and flip charts.

2. Can a program be custom tailored to meet our needs and how much notice would you need?
Yes of course. We at SA&A wouldn’t have it any other way. Since every company has different challenges and every audience is different, Steven would carefully design a program that would meet or exceed your expectations. Presentations can be anywhere between 20 minutes and 1 hour in length. They will run even longer if the audience is allowed to participate. It’s always best to book at least 2 months in advance because Steven’s schedule fills up fast. However if he is available, then just a few days notice is usually fine.
