REI specializes in external & internal strategic alliances relationships within all areas of the supply chain

Audio/Visual Requirements: Ed uses a Dell Inspiron 8100 notebook computer to run PowerPoint. He needs an LCD projector and a screen (for concurrent sessions, 10 foot minimum screen, 12 foot is better). He needs a 48 inch round or square table at the front of the room for his computer. Ed also needs a wireless lavaliere microphone.

Program Customization: Through his interview process, Ed endeavors to help his audiences feel comfortable listening to him. Through knowing a bit about both their every-day business life and specific industry-wide challenges, he targets his comments to their specific need. He reads your industry publications (when you provide them) and talks to movers and shakers. Sometimes he will visit a member business or facility in Southern California or while traveling.

Presentation Style: Combining high-content with playfulness, Ed’s style is what he calls Edutainment. He is comfortable with a wide range of audience demographics and diversity. Ed is comfortable presenting to any number: 2, 20, 200 or 2,000. He adjusts audience participation and interactivity to the size and situation based on the desires of his client.

Dress: Ed dresses for presentations based on client need and desire. You may select that he dress more formal in a suit or black tie, casual in a polo style shirt, or for visual impact in a colorful vest. Just let him know and he will accommodate your need.
Travel: Ed travels from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) for venues out of Southern California. He charges a flat rate travel fee and does not charge any travel expense for Southern California locations.

Handouts: Ed uses PowerPoint, so he will provide you with the handout version of his presentation. You can receive it hard-copy through the mail or electronically via e-mail. You may reproduce as many as you wish.

Lodging: Please reserve a hotel room billed to your master account. Ed prefers king/non-smoking whenever possible.

Deposits: A deposit of 50% of the speaking fee plus the flat-rate travel fee will lock-in your desired presentation date.
