Public Speaking Skills: 

The Centerpiece Area

As a professional with good public speaking skills you can use the centerpiece area as part of your program. I recently saw Dr. Shirley Garrett do this at a large public speaking engagement.

She was using juggling scarves on stage so for her centerpieces she draped these same scarves and it looked great. It was also inexpensive, it related to her presentation, and it gave each attendee something to take home to make it easier to remember her message. This idea could also score you some points with the meeting planner who may be able save quite a bit of money on flowers or other ornamental centerpiece items. Having good public speaking skills involves 
thinking ahead, thinking creatively, and thinking how you can help 
people save money while you make money. 

In addition, this public speaking skill could make the centerpiece area of the 
tables to be used as a revenue generator for you. You pre-sell your books 
or tapes to the meeting planner and then you can stack them attractively in the 
middle of the table. This gives everyone at the table something with 
your name on it to take home and won't cost much more than a fancy 
centerpiece that only one person at each table gets as a door prize. 
Use the middle of a roundtable to tie your message in AND make more 
money - another lesson to add to your public speaking skills
