Method:

Provide 2 months organisation and coordination on part time basis.  Regular liaison with hosts, speakers and gathering resources, keeps your event on track.  Best methods for recruiting Speakers; personal networks and social media, use email for coordinating responses.

Admin tasks; venue booking 3 – 4 hours, pre order all resources three to four weeks in advance for delivery to venue.  Ensure WIFI will support tablets and smart phones used by event attendees.  Create Eventbrite page publicity websites and social media (general emails to schools do not work, must find a named person)
