Getting Access! 🔑
Entering the Speaker Hub is super simple!
Accept your speaking invitation
Open your mail app and check for an email titled 'Speaker invitation to PINE' from [email protected]
In the email you receive, click Get access. You will be redirected to Speaker Hub login page.
Under "Upcoming Events" you should see the event you were invited to speak for. Tap to view the details.
Under "Sessions" you should see the session/s you were invited to speak at.
Note: You can switch to Speaker Hub any time by tapping your avatar.
If you can't find the email, check your spam folder or junk mail. Be sure to mark emails from [email protected] as "safe" so no future correspondence gets lost.
You can also get access to Speaker Hub via this link.
You have an option to upload up to 3 PDF presentations which you can share on the stage and demonstrate to participants of your session.
There is also an option to upload 1 prerecorded video which can be played on the stage during your session. Please pay attention that this is session moderator who can play this video.
When you are ready to go live on the stage please click Go to backstage.
Backstage is where all the magic happens!
It'll be the spot from where you and your team can start the session.
It's also a great idea to jump into Backstage before the event is set to go live and touch base with any other Event Admins (Organizer or Session Moderator), as well as check your devices (webcam/microphone/screen-share) or any presentation materials you added.
Reviewing Your Controls
Immediately at the center of the screen will be a few different admin controls:
ability to enabled/disabled microphone
ability to enabled/disabled webcam
ability to open the sharing menu and start sharing uploaded PDF files, or use the direct screen share options
Just be sure you're ready to actually start since you'll go live once you do!
On the right, you'll also find access to the Chat Space.
Backstage (1) tab in the chat is exclusively for your communication with Session Moderator.
Public (2) tab is a general chat on this stage available for all attendees. You can follow all the feedback and attendees' impressions here. You can create polls in the chat and publish them.
You can learn more about Polls here.
(1) During the session, you have a powerful tool for interacting with the audience - direct questions. For this, we have created a separate Q&A section, which appears during the session.
(2) All participants can vote for each other's questions. In the lower-left corner of the question block, you will see how many people supported this question. This will help you identify the most pressing questions and answer them first.
(3) You can mark the question as answered. Participants who missed part of the session for some reason will be able to find out which questions have already been discussed and will not ask them again.
(4) If you have a lively discussion and your audience is actively involved in the process, there may be too many questions. Therefore, you have the opportunity to hide all the questions that you have already answered.
Ensure you are using the correct email address. Your email should match the one used by the organizer when adding you as a speaker.
