A Virco Lectern without the Sulfur

chavezIf you’ve turned on the television or surfed the internet over the last 24 hours, then you’ve probably seen the news: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez died on Tuesday, March 5, from complications related to cancer. Reactions to his death have been extremely mixed, since he was well known for making boisterous statements and sharing his multiple conspiracy theories with the media. For example, over the last several years of his battle with cancer, Chavez believed, at times, that the United States was responsible for his illness. He is probably most remembered in North America for what he said at the United Nations meeting in 2006 when he claimed that U.S. President George W. Bush was “the devil,” then charged that the lectern he was standing behind “still smells of sulfur.”

Fortunately, not every lectern is so controversial. Nor are the bodies who stand behind them. In fact, these days, even online educators are utilizing the professional lectern as a way to deliver remarks to a camera with a stabilizing piece of classroom furniture that limits the temptation for a speaker to pace around a stage.

The Virco Mobile Lectern gives you a choice of five models to meet your applications. One features a slant top shelf with a wooden lip, a retractable keyboard drawer, a sliding side shelf and two generous lower shelves. At 46″ high and 25″ wide, public speakers and educators have plenty of space in the classroom to shift behind the mobile lectern and still deliver a clear presentation before the students who are watching online from somewhere else in the country. When you’re finished with your presentation or lecture, simply roll the mobile lectern into a corner for the next time. At an unbelievably low price, is sure you won’t want to pass up this offer.
