Even though he couldn’t possibly know what the future held, Shakespeare sure had it right when he coined the phrase, “All the world’s a stage.” Because when it comes to hosting a virtual event with a keynote speaker, in effect, the world is your stage—you want to be able to communicate to as many people as possible (so long as they’ve registered for your event, of course!).
Whereas breakout sessions are meant to limit audience numbers to allow for more interaction and participation among attendees, keynote speaker presentations are meant to attract and speak to the masses. Which means if you’re planning a keynote presentation (or a few), you need to be able to accommodate all of your virtual attendees tuning into the same broadcast from their remote locations.
Based on your total attendee count and the requirements of your speaker(s), there’s several different communication tools and technology platforms to consider. Let’s first determine your speaker platform requirements, so we can help you maximize your keynote effectiveness.
