How to setup conference room?

Setting up a conference room can be simple or complicated, depending on what you plan to use it for. Conference rooms are used for many things; predominately meetings, seminars, workshops and conferences. Conference rooms need to be comfortable and convenient. There are various room settings for your conference room.

The style of room setup depends on the purpose of the meeting. Meetings designed to encourage group interaction would be arranged differently to a traditional seminar where participants are listening to a specific speaker, or speakers. 
If your company is having a conference, the first step is to decide whether or not you will be getting outside help to plan and execute it. Conference organisers can put together a winning conference that will no doubt leave all those in attendance very impressed. On th other hand you may want to be saving money in which case planing it yourself or getting someone in the office to plan it is the only option. Seating arrangements are a critical part of any successful public speaking engagement and are especially important for humorous speeches. As a professional public speaker you must consider not only interaction, but safety and comfort parameters as well. When making arrangements for a business meeting, remember to take care of any technical requirements. You may need a microphone for the speaker so audience questions can be asked. A LCD Projector is generally used for PowerPoint presentations and many meeting room will also have inbuilt or free standing projector screens. A podium may be required by the speaker and a lectern is handy for the speakers notes. Setting up the room well is important. This should ideally be done the day before to avoid any last minute jobs. If there are training aids being used such as projectors or powerpoint presentations then the chairs will need to face the front. If there is any training in small groups being given, then chairs facing each other will be appropriate chairs arranged in a circle. Thinking about the order of events of the day will make arranging the chairs easier.

Uncomfortable people will not listen to you. The unwritten rule is that meeting rooms are always too hot or too cold so you’ll have to do your best. When setting air conditioning levels, the room should be cooler than you think it should be. The body heat of the audience will bring the room to the comfort level. Make sure it does, and be ready to make adjustments as you go. If you can’t get the right temperature, make sure you acknowledge the audience’s discomfort and encourage them to make the best of it. Your care for them will automatically make things a little better.

Ps3 Consoles – The Ps3 Revision 1: Review

This is a review of the second PS3 Consoles that I have purchased for personal use. My first PS3 Consoles was a 60 GB launch system that included full backwards compatibility, media card slots, and 4 USB ports. It has worked like a champ since I bought it, but since my girlfriend had became so fond of it, I had to get another one for myself.

It is my intention to give the reader an accurate description of what the new 80 GB standard PlayStation 3 SKU is and what it isn’t.

It is, in my honest opinion, the best video gaming platform on the market AND the best HD home theater device on the market. No piece of consumer electronics can do everything that the PS3 Consoles can do. One might argue the same of the PS3 Consoles ‘s main rival, the Xbox 360 (of which I own also), but then again…the 360 doesn’t play Blu-Ray.

Blu-Ray is an important caveat in this generation’s gaming war. If you have an HDTV, Blu-Ray really makes it shine. Sony has triumphed in the format war, at the cost of alienating its core gamer audience. The PS3 Consoles is an expensive piece of hardware, but you get what you pay for. It is a dependable, well built, attractively designed video game console. It looks GREAT with the rest of your high end audio and video equipment. Picture quality output on Blu-Ray movies is pristine on a high quality HDTV. Standard Definition DVD’s are upscaled to HD resolution with the use of the PS3 Consoles ‘s HDMI port.

I am bummed out about the lack of backwards compatibility, the lack of media card slots, and only having 2 USB ports. It’s not a deal breaker, but I admit that I was spoiled by the features of my $ 599 launch console. The trim on the PS3 Consoles is no longer chrome; instead it is more of a matte silver finish. The PS3 Consoles is no longer “blinging”.

Is this “new and improved” 80 GB PS3 Consoles better than the original?
The answer is no, BUT…the new PS3 runs A LOT QUIETER than the original. Honestly, the original wasn’t loud either, but this one practically runs silently. The smaller version of the Cell Processor 65nm was used in this SKU. It also runs cooler. Sony didn’t just take out features, they took out the expendable features and replaced them with more efficient chips…

You’re also getting FREE online gaming on the PlayStation Network and the ability to download DivX movies right onto your hard drive! The web browser is now Flash enabled to allow for basic web browsing and easy e-mail access.

Finally, last but not least, you can use your PS3 Consoles to wirelessly stream your movies, music, and pictures from your PC or Mac. If you have a PSP, you can use Remote Play to connect your PSP to your PS3 Consoles from any wireless point in the world. Cool stuff…and it works.

What about the games? I can’t understand what people are talking about when they say the PS3 Consoles doesn’t have great games. It’s utter nonsense. Here is a short list of MUST PLAY PS3 games, most of which, are exclusive to the PlayStation franchise.
1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
2. Little Big Planet
3. Resistance 2
4. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
5. Warhawk
6. Pixel Junk Monsters
7. Uncharted Drake’s Fortune
8. Grand Theft Auto 4
9. Valkyria Chronicles
10. Fallout 3

Simply put, at $ 200 cheaper than the original launch price the PS3 Consoles is an absolutely awesome piece of home theater equipment that deserves to be the showcase of any HD living room. The Sony PlayStation brand, built up with 12 years of console dominance, is still a major force in the gaming industry.
