I have two needs and one want.
The two needs are a mic and a digital projector that I can plug my laptop into. I’d prefer a wireless lapel mic or an old-fashioned stage mic on a stand, but other types of mics are okay too. For the digital projector, I have a Mac and a Mac-to-VGA adapter. (If there’s a back-up computer, I can also put my PPT presentation on a USB drive.) I do not need computer audio.
My one want is for a podium (or, if that’s too much trouble, a table or stool) that I can use for notes, water, etc. (I’ll bring my own water.) If the podium has a mic I would still prefer to have another mic so that I am not tied to the podium (and because most podium mics are too short for my 6’5″ frame), but if the podium mic is all there is then that’s okay.
