  • 1.  Virtual - Schedule Technical Rehearsals for Speakers

    Posted 12-06-2021 12:11
    Hey there - Curious how people schedule their speakers for technical (aka connection) tests in virtual. Due to firewalls, etc we can't use programs like Calendly.   And while I would love all speakers to register - that is often like herding cats.  Appreciate any thoughts people have.

    I used a Google doc where I had date and time slots that my presenters could use to sign up for rehearsals. I had used other things in the past but this was simple and worked well for my folks. From there, I created the rehearsal sessions in Cvent and then shared the links via Outlook meeting invites so it would show up on folks' calendars. Speakers could also access their rehearsal links via the Speaker Resource Center.
