For Program Coordinators
Meeting Planner/Coordinator Information
On behalf of all the world-wide employees of Healthcare
Value Incorporated, welcome! Thank you for considering Dr. Dunaway for
your next event.
We understand the demanding process you have to plan, coordinate, and
execute an event and what it takes to make it sensational. We stand ready
to help you do this.
Our job is to achieve two objectives for you. (Sure, well do a great
job for meeting the goals of the presentation(s), but this is for YOU!)
- Give you the easiest experience
youve ever had with a speaker.
- Make you look good, real good.
No, GREAT, to your boss and colleagues by giving you outstanding speaker
evaluations and increase audience attendance.

be determined approximately four weeks before the program and may change
depending on coach airfare fluctuations from the first estimate. This
flat fee assures clients that no additional or hidden fees will be incurred
and is all inclusive. Late changes to pre-program arrangements
as submitted may incur additional client cost.

Minimal AV Requirements when
using all Dr. Dunaways equipment (audience less than 400 people):
- A grounded (three plug) extension
cord, (he carries a gang outlet that runs from a power outlet to the
- A table to place Dr. Ds LCD projector, computer,
and speaker on. (If Dr. D. is immediately following another presentation,
hell pre-place the equipment, or use a rolling cart as a substitute
table to just wheel it into position before the program and wheel it
away after the program before the next speaker to make the transition
seamless. Hell already have tested all the equipment in the proper
- The largest projection screen
available. (White sheet duct taped to a wall also has worked in a pinch
but lacks the sophisticated panache Dr. Dunaway strives to attain for
When Dr. Dunaway will use facility
- An input to house sound that accepts an XLR input.
- A 1/8 mini-plug cable to run from Dr. Dunaways
computer to house sound. This should be sound-mixed separately from
the voice input.
- A standard LCD cable to connect to house LCD projector/projectors.
- A podium is not required or desired. Dr. Dunaway
doesnt use a podium but will request a small side table to hold
a few props.
- He will need time in advance of the actual presentation
to connect the computer to the cable.
- Because of music and sound/video effects that are
in the custom computer set-up, using another computer will result in
diminished A/V effects. It will loose all sorts of Whoa, that
was cool! comments from the audience.
- Dr. Dunaway has spoken in Board Rooms to Broadway
sized theaters, from sports stadiums to a converted cold storage room
in the back of a pizza restaurant. He is about as flexible as they come.
But, theater seating, with curved rows works best for rooms without
tables. For rooms with tables, having all the audience directly facing
forward also works best. Arc the tables if you can.
- Dr. Dunaway does not want to cause you additional
work, (and he doesnt mind helping move tables if time permits!),
but sometimes a small extra effort can create exponential improvements
to the outcome. Just like ambiance in a fine restaurant adds to a great
meal, room set-up matters to a speech. A poor
room set-up can sabotage an otherwise great speech.
We typically provide a customized introduction and bio for each presentation
but to get an idea of the style, please see the sample. Dr. Dunaway will
customize bios of any length to dovetail with your meeting theme
or specifications at no charge. Just ask if we can help you with copy
writing! A Bio is typically included with handout materials, (there are
generic versions of these available on this website too), as well as an
Wed like you to use our evaluation form even if you provide your
own and encourage you to photocopy these on site to keep for your own
use. Simply provide Dr. Dunaway with the original returned evaluations.
If it is more convenient for us to send you copies once Dr. Dunaway returns
to our world headquarters in South Carolina, well do that for you.
(Well even edit out evaluations from people who were obviously grumpy
the day they attended Dr. Dunaways program at no charge!) Tell us
how to make this as easy as possible for you.
We request that Dr. Dunaway be sent all mailings to attendees and that
his email address will be added to the mailing list for meeting attendees:
Let us know how to help you best achieve your objectives, well be
happy to help in any way we can and hope youll be so overwhelmed
youll be inspired to write us a testimonial letter!
