Conference Going Virtual - How to pivot online

I wrote a blog post about a Conference Going Virtual

There are so many moving parts for associations looking to pivot online.  This story of the National Speakers Association is a good review of how to think out of the box.

Virtual EmCee

I have been doing virtual emcee work for six years.  It began when my friend and I launched a program called "the Conference Talk Show".  We believed then, and now, that a virtual conference is more than a broadcast of the main stage keynote speakers. The remote audience has different needs.

With the overrun of webinars in the last few weeks, we also realized that this was true for online learning.  Thus we created "The Webinar Talk Show".

Hosting events is important work.  And the needs of the at-home audience need to be considered.

Check out my latest blog on hiring a Virtual Conference Host.

While companies are seeking options, I have been brainstorming ideas with clients.  I am not the right host for all events, but happy to share ideas with everyone facing these crazy times in the meetings industry.

I wrote about "Social Tightening" on my main blog on my website.  Please check it out and let me know your thoughts.
