GRUEN eConference - rehearsals for presentations
by Brant Knutzen - Sunday, 30 August 2020, 1:59 AM
 

Hello GRUEN participants!

Marco & Jimmy of Group #5 did the first rehearsal, and found they need to cut down their slideshow considerably to keep their presentation under the 15 minute time limit.

All teams: I will hold up a card that says "1 minute warning" at 14 minutes, and another that says "Time is up!" at 15 minutes.

At 16 minutes I will remove your ability to share your screen, and mute your microphone.   We need to stick to the time schedule pretty tightly, or the eConference will run over schedule, and it won't be fair for everyone who DID stick to their 15 minutes of fame!

Tomorrow (Sun Aug 30) Maarten & Ali of Group #3 will practice in timeslot 1, and Annette & Victoria of Group #4 will practice in timeslot 3.

Note: we will be using this Zoom link for the meeting: https://hkbu.zoom.us/j/2578838981

There are plenty of timeslots open for rehearsal practice tomorrow, if you want to join.  If you like, you can practice tomorrow, work on your slideshow, and then practice again next weekend.  Practice makes perfect!

I have set up dates and time slots to give each team a 15-minute rehearsal before the eConference.

All teams should show up for rehearsal at least once before the eConference.

Weekend 1 dates are: Saturday, August 29 and Sunday, August 30.

Timeslots are from 3pm to 4:45pm for Europe, 6:30pm to 8:15pm in India, and 9pm to 10:45pm in Hong Kong.

Use this activity to indicate your choice for Weekend 1.

Weekend 2 dates are: Saturday, Sep 5 and Sunday, Sep 6.

Timeslots are from 3pm to 4:45pm for Europe, 6:30pm to 8:15pm in India, and 9pm to 10:45pm in Hong Kong.

Use this activity to indicate your choice for Weekend 2.

NOTE: be sure you login to the workshop so you can make your choice!  (check top-right screen for prompt to login if you haven't)

Both the presenter and backup presenter for each group (names listed below) should attend and be ready to practice their 15-minute presentation of their group GRUEN proposal.  Two teams (#8 and #12) need to nominate a lead presenter, and team #10 needs to get both presenters nominated!  All team members are welcome and encouraged to attend rehearsals and the eConference itself (on Sep 10-12).
