Events: demystified
52: Show Calling & Production Roles for Virtual & Hybrid Events ft Heather Sharpe (Sherpa Group)

I am exceptionally giddy today to be talking about a topic near and dear to my heart: calling a virtual or a hybrid event as a show director. With the continued prevalence and increase in virtual and hybrid events, a lot of event professionals have needed to learn virtual and hybrid technical production skills to execute and deliver successful events. So today I’ve invited Heather Sharpe, a multi-award-winning Event Producer/ Director/ Planner, an instructor for the world-renowned Event Leadership Institute, and we’ll first define a few important terms as far as event production roles go, and then get into the meat of:

  • producing and delivering successful virtual and hybrid events; 
  • evaluating & organizing content, 
  • developing a cue sheet or technical script, and 
  • how to direct/call a virtual or hybrid show. 

Tune in and let’s analyze our capabilities and discuss best practices in Calling Hybrid & Virtual events.
