Thomas is fine with most room set-ups, however, theater style seating with guests up front and packed together is an ideal arrangement. Several of Thomas’s stories are told while sitting down therefore a stage/ riser is recommended for best viewing. Being elevated makes it much easier for everyone to see and enjoy his presentation. Thomas does not speak from a lectern. If it is necessary for a lectern to be on the stage for other parts of the program, please have it set to the side of the stage during his presentation.
