SCHOOL FAQ

How long is your presentation to school students?
Normally student performances run for 50-60 minutes, however can sometimes be longer or shorter depending on school need, time table and question answer time.

What are your minimum and maximum audience sizes?
Lorin is a truly inspirational and consummate performer and delivers a stunning performance, regardless of whether it's 10, or 10,000 people. Although from his vast experience in schools, we find the ideal audience size is 200-500 students, as it creates a more spontaneous and relaxed performance atmosphere and inspirational event for all in attendance.  Smaller schools are also welcome to participate, on their own, or as part of a cluster of schools.  Minimum fees may apply.

Will the performance be suitable for all ages, especially our kindergarten and prep kids?
Lorin has now performed at over a million students including thousands of kindergarten and prep students and we have never had a class walk out yet because of restlessness.  Because of Lorin's captivating delivery style and constant mix of activities through the performance, younger students are always just as attentive at the end of the hour as they were at the beginning.

Can Lorin tailor his performance to meet our school core values?
Yes definitely! Lorin is a highly experienced and incredibly versatile speaker and captivates audiences of any age, by adapting his presentation style, audience engagement and core messages to suit any school values and objectives. We strongly suggest that your in-school performance coordinator speak directly with Lorin's team, regarding your specific need and focus.

Will this just be a one-off event, or do you provide support materials to ensure a positive and lasting outcome into the future?
Over the years we have found many schools choose not to use the support materials, as Lorin's messages and simple strategies are so easily adaptable to your own personal circumstances. The authenticity of Lorin's presentation is very powerful and unlike many programs, his messages and visit will naturally become the topic of discussion for weeks and even months after the event.

What is your Bump in / Bump out time?
Lorin normally arrives 30-40 minutes prior to the performance to check in at the front office. Set up and pack up only takes 15-20 minutes each.

Do we need to provide or set anything up for the performance?
Lorin usually comes prepared with all his own sound gear, wireless mics and props, thus making it a quick and easy set up on the day. A small desk and chair for his assistant is normally all we require. Lorin generally stands on the floor in front of the stage, to be up close and personal with his audience, unless it's a very large audience seated in chairs, where he will then move on to the stage for better audience vision. He may also require a microphone XLR plug (DI out) which can be plugged into your school PA to bolster the sound for large groups and venues.

Do we need to pay a deposit?
No deposit is required, however a confirmation letter will be sent to you outlining date, session times and fee, after which you will be required to acknowledge and confirm your booking via return email. You will then be issued an invoice on the day of the performance.

Can Lorin provide additional workshop and professional development sessions for staff and students?
Yes.  Lorin is able to provide additional smaller workshopa nd PD sessions on a variety of leadership, communication, disability-special needs, personal and collaborative achievement topics.  These sessions often build upon the messages already given in Lorin's primary keynote address.

Does Lorin offer keynote addresses for Professional Learning days, Principal and educator conferences?
Yes.  Lorin is often invited to be the keynote speaker at many cluster, regional, state and national education conferences with outstanding feedback from principals, exec staff, teachers and support staff alike.  Also see Lorin's corporate page for more information.
