Before the Event
Before The Event –
Join 15 minutes before the event is to start – so you can make sure your microphone and video is working.
Have your profile info ready – this is best with a quick profile photo , you can also link to your linkedin, website, and even a calendar booking link – so people can click your profile and find more about you.
Ask which table you’d like to join – if you are in a paid or member event – we want to help you before the event by arranging tables. Ask the community management team on which tables are available. If you are attending a free event, most likely we will not have pre-arranged tables due to lack of time and resources.
Be ready to NETWORK – this is not a typical online event where you listen to a speaker the whole time and have 1 chat box. This is where you will form mini tables of 2 to 6 people and can see and talk to only those people. Then when the event/presentation starts- all need to focus on that presentation area. So be ready to engage and connect to make the most of the event.
Most events have event networking, then a presentation, and then post event networking. Similar to a real in-person event.
During the Event
During the Event –
There are some unique functions:
Whiteboard – so each table has their own whiteboard. This is where all those at the table can draw, add sticky notes, and other ideas.
Three types of chat – there is private (1 to 1) messaging, there is global messages (all tables / attendees can see) and then there is a more unique one – which is table messaging – so only those at that table (of 2 to 6 people) will see the chat messages.
Q&A – you can ask questions during presentation mode. The speaker(s) can mark them answered when ready. Also other participants can upvote them. You can also ask anonymously if you are shy.
