One of the ideas for EVV CON 2022 that came out of a November 17 planning session was to spit the schedule up, with an extended intermission, so that the second half of the program at least would be more accessible to a well-known public speaking and professional development organization in Australia (one of the centers of online cub activity). The tradeoff would be a later night for our friends in Europe and farther East.

My original thought was that it might be better to support a second event timed to appeal to Australia / Asia / Pacific a well-known public speaking and professional development organization, organized by someone from that region with people like me staying up late or getting up early to attend. But I think the split schedule idea has merit as a way of accommodating the greatest number of a well-known public speaking and professional development organization and is worthy of further discussion.

I’m still thinking the content to fit within this schedule would include:

  • 3 featured speakers
  • Webinar contest – our unique, unofficial contest format
  • Tech Tips – a series of short talks on presentation tech and other software for speakers and leaders
  • Short 15 minute breakout sessions between the other events

Important: All these ideas are still just ideas. We’re at the brainstorming stage, still working to identify the online a well-known public speaking and professional development organization leaders who will step forward to make this event happen, who will make the ultimate decisions.

That said, here are a few more preliminary ideas for discussion.

The Date – April 10?

Based on feedback that the first dates I proposed didn’t leave enough time for planning, I’m thinking of moving the event to April 10 . That’s a week after Easter and before the beginning of Passover. Any other significant conflicts?

I’m proposing that we would also hold some webinar contest semifinals events in late March, narrowing the number of potential contestants to 5 or 6 who would face off at EVV CON 2022.

Possible Split Schedule Structure

The schedule outlined below shows the event broken into two three-hour blocks, with a 3-hour intermission in between. That leaves time for a meal or a nap and makes for shorter stints in front of a computer. Again, this is only a proposal for discussion purposes.

Block 1 would start at 15:00 UTC / 4 pm London (BST), 11 am US East Coast (EDT), 8 am US West Coast (PDT), and 1 am Sydney (AEST). That’s Sunday rather than Saturday for Australia.

Block 2 would start at 21:00 UTC / 10 am London, 5 pm US East Coast (EDT) , 2 pm US West Coast (PDT), and 7 am Sydney (AEST). I’d propose that scheduling the webinar contest.
