Using the power of the Internet, Duane can beam into your classroom, boardroom, or meeting room for a live presentation and conversation. With an approach that is affordable, flexible, and easeful, you can transform your meeting or gathering with cutting edge communications. From his home office, Duane will come into your gathering at a size to fit your needs—whether on a computer, a large-screen monitor, or a wall-sized projector. Because he does not need to take the time and expense to travel physically, this is an affordable and an ecologically conscious option.
PERSONAL, POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE
Here are illustrative comments from others that have used this approach:
• Prof. Chris Bache, Youngstown State University, Ohio (A course on religion and ecology): “How good to share the teaching space with you and to experience the impact of the students being able to hear your voice, feel your convictions, your humanity, your good humor, and your relentlessly piercing honesty. I think they will be taking in the encounter for years. We’ll be doing this more.”
• Prof. Tim Kasser, Knox College, Illinois (A course on environmental studies): “The students really enjoyed talking with you…your personality really came across clearly through the media… people could tell what a warm and gentle guy you are…”
• Jim Rosborough, Houston, Texas (A living room of people exploring our world in transformation): “A wonderful session… the best we’ve had…There is a lot of interest and energy in carrying the conversation onward and outward…. Thank you for an absolutely super job!!!”
Duane can tailor his communications to the unique needs of each group. Here are the four, most common themes for his presentations:
1. The World at the Tipping Point—Understanding our time of planetary transition
2. Voluntary Simplicity: Cool lifestyle for a hot planet and sustainable living for a new world
3. Images of a Promising Future—Tools for envisioning a workable and meaningful future
4. The Living Universe—The view of the universe emerging from the combined wisdom of science and spirituality
FLEXIBILITY AND EASE OF SETUP
With the power of the Internet, the connection for this presentation can be created quickly and easily. Here are the two, most common methods:
• One-way video—from Duane’s office to your computer with video and with a telephone connection from your meeting room back so you can ask him questions and give feedback.
• Two-way video—from Duane’s computer to yours with video and from your computer back to Duane allowing both to see and talk with one another (for example, a widely available capability on Apple computers).
The only key requirement is that you have a high-speed Internet connection at your end so Duane can broadcast a live video to you. You can then display Duane on a computer screen of whatever size fits your needs or, for a larger group, project his image from your computer onto a wall. Duane will work with you to insure that we have a computer account to establish the connection (for example, Skype or AOL or a .Mac account).
FEES AND SCHEDULING
Fees vary depending upon the length of the call, the amount of preparation time involved for Duane, and the number of persons in the venue. He will negotiate his fees to insure this service is broadly available. Call to explore scheduling a session.
