Adding a Speaker
Step 1: After logging into the admin panel, click the pencil to edit your event.
Step 2: On the left side of the screen, click Space.
Step 3: Click on the Speakers tab at the top of the screen.
Step 4: Click + Add Speaker.
Step 5: Create the speaker profile. Email, first name, and last name are required. Click save when finished. See the "Tips for creating speaker profiles" section at the end of this document for more details on how to create a great speaker profile!
You can return to the speakers list to edit speakers' information at any time by clicking on the pencil icon to the right of their email address.
Assign a Speaker to a Broadcast
Step 6: To enable a speaker to talk during a part of the event (an agenda item) you must add this speaker to the agenda item in the event. To do this, click "Agenda" in the top toolbar.
Step 7: Click "+ Add Stage Agenda" to add a new item, or click the pencil next to an existing agenda item.
*Note* You can add a speaker to as many of the event’s agenda items as you wish.
Step 8: If creating a new agenda item, select the broadcast type for it, then click Next. If you’re simply editing an already existing agenda item, go to the next step.
Step 9: Click + Add Speaker.
Step 10: Select the speaker(s) from the list you compiled in the “Speakers” tab which you'd like to add to this agenda item. Do this by clicking the "+" next to their name. Give this agenda item a name, then click save.
Share Speaker Magic Links
That's it! Your speaker is now added to your event. Once you've finished creating your speaker and adding them to the proper agenda item, don't forget to share the speaker's magic link! This will give them access to the backstage area during the event.
To do this, return to the Speakers tab and click the magic link icon to copy the link to your clipboard. Then, paste the link in an email to your speaker. This link is unique to this speaker, so only share this link with this speaker.
Tips for Creating a Speaker Profile
A few key tips for creating a great speaker profile:
- For profile image, make sure the photo is square, and the person’s face is centered in the photo (If not, a section of the photo may not align properly).
- For speaker description, write 50 words or less (any more will get cut off).
- For speaker title, try to keep the words to a minimum (again, it may cut off).
- For speaker company, try to keep it to a minimum word count.
- LinkedIn Profile link is an option that will show up as a small round icon on the meet your speakers page. If you decide to leave this out, it will not show up.
- Twitter link needs to be the full link and not just the handle
Reorder Speakers List
You may also reorder your speakers list.
The order your speakers appear on your Speakers section in the admin panel is the way your speakers list will appear on your registration page and in the Speakers tab in your event.
To reorder your speakers, click Reorder, and then drag and drop your speakers to change the order they will appear. Then click Done.
