1/8 This may be of interest to you. Here’s how I have conducted keynotes since the beginning of May.

Wall-mounted TV. Apple TV air playing slides from Mac 1 while Mac 2 has two HD cameras plugged into it to deliver the feed to the client’s platform of choice. #Keynote #speaking
2/8 Camera 1 for straight-on keynote and Camera 2 for Q&A while sitting down - different views to engage the audience.
3/8 Sometimes I use a third angle as Camera 1 is a Tenveo 3X model that rotates 270-degrees, so I might use it for a whiteboard session, as an example. Or I use it to tell a story with a different background, like my books.
4/8 Dependent on the platform I can switch cameras manually or by using Elgato Stream Deck.

PollEv embedded into PowerPoint so I get simultaneous crowd participation. Polls, word clouds, quizzes, etc. They love it.
5/8 Cordless Logitech USB mouse (obviously) to flip slides plugged into Mac 1. USB lav-mic hooked up to Mac 2. Sonos speakers in the office piping in any client audio hooked up to Mac 2 via Bluetooth.
6/8 QuickTime to record every keynote. (So I can capture it and use it later on for anything or any way I choose.)

Six lights for (dark) morning sessions.

Miele coffee machine. Priorities.
7/8 Moisturizer, baby powder, and prayers to make my head far less shiny.

Oh, and I wear shorts. That’s a plus.
