Ahh, 2020. Many of us were forced to take things virtual in 2020. That included many previously in-person events. While some in-person event organizers fully canceled or postponed their event, others took the opportunity to try out the virtual event space. And many speakers found themselves needing to “figure out” speaking virtually. Interestingly, I found myself feeling “at home” in a way. The first few speaking gigs I had years ago were all virtual, so it was nice to lean into that already-developed muscle. I did, however, take some time and money to upgrade my setup.
One of the most common questions I get when meeting someone via video conference is, “What kind of camera are you using?!” This hasn’t been limited to virtual events, either. I also hear it on conference calls often. Because of the frequent interest, I decided to share a list of the gadgets in my setup.
First, some quick visual aids in the video below.

Here are the devices that makeup the video you see above.
And now, the audio devices in use and mentioned in the video.
I have a few other odds and ends that I figured I’d list. I’m not breaking down what they’re used for just yet. I may come back around and write that up later, though. For now, here are some random items without much context:
Maybe you found your way here because you’re planning a virtual event. If that’s the case, and you’re still working on the line-up, here are the main topics that I focus on:
If these topics could bring value to your audience and event, I’d love to hear from you.
