How did the virtual event compare to attending a conference in person?
Rob Whittle, Business Development Director at Ensafe: “The format and Q&A seemed to work fine. We were also going to use the event to network with potential new client contacts which obviously couldn’t happen in person but RICS is helping us to make contacts.”
What are your thoughts on this style of conference delivery and interaction?
Christian Watkins: “I think they are great and would definitely attend one again in the future. Reducing peoples travel also has sustainability benefits.”
Richard Martin Commercial and Legal Manager at Shepherd Construction Ltd: “This could be the way forward until the COVID-19 pandemic passes to maintain CPD.”
Tips for delegates who want to make the most of their virtual event
“The conference was also recorded which meant if you missed something you could go back and watch it again.
“Just check your internet connection beforehand and maybe listen to the audio through headphones for better sound quality.”
Oliver Scott: “I would firstly recommend setting up the software early, to ensure that you will be up and running straight away. I had no issues myself.
“I would also suggest noting down questions that you want to ask, and post these towards the end of the presentation.”
