We’ve answered all your questions on how this free, online event series will work. From system requirements through to how to ask questions, we cover it all.
I’ve signed up. What happens next?
Thanks, it’s great to have you onboard!
The virtual conference platform, where all action will happen on 13 August is open, but not live, now. This gives you a chance to familiarise yourself with the platform and even use some of the features like the one-on-one networking function and visit the virtual booths in the Expo section. You can also check out the schedule for the summit in Reception and add segments of it to your calendar.
I have registered. Can I share the link with others to join on the day?
Each person that wants to take part in the event, has to register themselves to get a link. A link will only work for one person and can’t be shared.
What are the system requirements for the virtual conference platform?
1. Make sure you are using a PC or laptop to ensure best conference experience.
2. Use Chrome or Firefox browser – make sure it is fully up to date.
3. Internet speed requirements: minimum of 5 mbps download and 2 mbps upload.
Which browsers are best for the virtual conference platform?
It is highly recommended you stick with Chrome or Firefox. Make sure they are up-to-date as well. Please avoid Brave, Safari and Microsoft IE and Edge for now.
What is the difference between the stage and live Q&A sessions?
The stage is where our speakers will present on the day, much like you’d expect from a physical event. You can join these presentations by selecting the STAGE tab in the platform. After their presentation, each speaker will be available for live Q&As in the Sessions tab for around 10 minutes.
The Q&A Sessions replicate a roundtable discussion, or a breakout room, at a physical event. At our roundtable sessions, up to four people will be able to share audio and video and participate actively in the discussion with the selected speaker. As numbers are limited, we encourage you to pre-register to make sure you can actively participate in the discussion of your choice.
Don’t worry though, audience members are also able to take part in the discussion, but by using the CHAT function in the session booth (this is explained further in the Delegates only FAQ section). Please note that audience members are not able to share audio and video.
What if I have general questions about courses during the event?
IMNZ course facilitators will be available for one-on-one chats about the different leadership courses we offer. They will each have a ‘booth’ similar to a stand at a physical event. You can choose who you want to speak to and join them in the BOOTH tab on the platform.
Will I be able to watch presentations after the event?
Yes. We will record all presentations and Q&A sessions and make these available to attendees following the event.
