Continuing our series on things speakers MUST have with them in their “Pearl Harbor Kit.” <<The USA was caught unprepared for the Japanese Bombing on December 7, 1941.>> No me; I want to be prepared for any speaking contingencies. Today, we now talk about small analog clocks.
When giving a talk, you MUST get off the stage ON TIME. On cruises, the room you are in is probably going to be used for another activity. They can’t set-up the bingo machine if you are in there. Worse, the passengers may need to get to the other side of the ship to attend the art auction. They do NOT appreciate you going over. The Cruise Director will have stern words for you if you go over. Really.
The small analog clock can sit on the podium so you can glance at it. It’s real tacky to pull up your sleeve to look at your wrist watch. Don’t count on a clock being on the back wall. Even if there is one, it may be hard to see in the darkened room. If you are given 45 minutes, glance down and keep track of the minutes. An analog clock is easier to read than a digital one. I love my CASIO.
