Connecting with Influencers on Pickevent

Agreement

Here at Pickevent, we know how important making the right connections is. For this reason, we’ve made finding event organisers and speakers on Pickevent not only easy, but also useful.

Finding the speakers and event organisers is as easy as clicking “people” on the left hand side of the page, and typing in their name. It is what you see once you make it to their profile that makes Pickevent special.

This is the profile of an event organiser. We have outlined our four favourite features of the profile; the connections buttons (1), where any media appears (2), the Q&A page (3) and their review summary (4).

This is the profile of a speaker. As you can see, it is incredibly similar, with just a few small differences. The same sections are highlighted.

1) Follow, Message, Ask, Review
The connections buttons are an easy way to start linking up with your influencers on Pickevent. The first button allows you to follow your influencer. After this, there are buttons to message them privately or ask a public question. This latter feature is fantastic, as you can ask any questions you didn’t have the chance to during the event.

For speakers, you can review them from their profile, too. For event organisers, you review their events as opposed to them as individuals, so head over to their event page to provide them with feedback!

2) Media
Speakers and Event Organisers can add any media to their accounts, from youtube clips to Powerpoint presentations. This is great for attendees, as you can see media from events you were unable to attend, widening horizons.

3) Q&A
Sometimes, it’s only on later reflection that you realise that the presentation or event left you with an unanswered question, or the desire to know more about a certain topic. This is where the Q&A section comes in. After clicking the ‘ask’ button to present your question, the Speaker or Event Organiser can answer the question, and the response will appear here.

In this section, you can also see the Speaker or Event Organiser’s answers to other questions posed by Attendees, which is a great way to learn more.

4) Review Summary
The categories examined change between speakers and organisers. Speakers are rated on their expertise, clarity and engagement, so that you can get an idea of how enjoyable and precise their previous talks have been. For organisers, we show how their previous events have been rated in terms of overall organisation, learning experience and networking experience.

Connecting with influencers is one of the best ways to ensure you get the most out of events you attend. Make sure you try out these features and utilise everything Pickevent has to offer!
