We’ve talked a lot about those little things that a speaker needs to have in a zip lock bag that come in very handy when giving lectures on cruise ships. A Pearl Harbor Kit. Today I want to mention a teeny tiny flashlight.

I was talking on a Princess cruise a few years ago. I had my laser pointer and slide clicker on the podium. When I was introduced and came up from the back of the room, I adjusted the dias…then DONK – the slide clicker fell to the floor. It was pitch dark. I coudl not quickly find it. The audience of 50 had no idea what was going on as I searched the dark floor in vain.  I had no choice but to move on and hand-advance the slides. It worked but it kept me anchored to the podium.

The solution? When I got home I got a decent flashlight. I bought a little one with one AAA battery  just for these kind of emergencies. i am not talking about a huge multi-AA cell model. You want a small one that will fit into your zip-lock.

Flashlights are handy in dark venues

Here’s the one I chose. Streamlight 73001 Nano Light Miniature Keychain LED FlashlightThis little guy has neat small caribiner so you can clip it to a belt loop to keep it handy when on stage. For less than $7.00 you get 100,000 hours of use and up to 8 hours of battery life. The flashlight is less than an inch and a half long. Follow the link and take the worry out of life. Easy internet shopping. Be prepared!
