Audio Visual Needs

Donald prefers a clip-on microphone. For larger audiences, an additional wireless handheld microphone for question and answer portion is requested. Donald often uses a PowerPoint presentation, and will need a laptop, screen, wireless remote and an LCD projector. Someone from Donald’s team will send the presentation in advance.


For events outside of the Triangle, NC, Donald prefers a king-bed in a non-smoking room that is close to the elevator. The room should be as close to the function as possible. A room with a microwave and refrigerator is requested.
