Supporting Your Speaker

Communicate with your speaker in advance about the details

  • What time should they arrive?
  • How long is the talk?
  • What is the structure of the event?
  • If a Zoom, what time will you open up the event to the audience? 
  • Details to mention to the audience, if relevant:
    • Provide language that welcome's attendees and, if in Zoom, potentially ask where people are joining from.
    • Communicate Zoom guidelines or provide information on where the bathrooms are located, if a face-to-face event
    • Are you prioritizing underrepresented or student voices?  If so, ask them to begin their question with an asterisk (*).
    • Share links related to the talk during the session (have someone assist you)
    • If interested in collecting feedback on the event, talk to Laura Spears for assistance.
