When setting up your event, you know you have various options available to you as to the ‘type’ of event you will hold. Today, I would like to review some of the benefits of an operator-assisted event.
Probably the foremost benefit to this type of event is the fact that you have support throughout your event in the form of an operator – not automated, pre-recorded – a real, live person! If you anticipate a particularly large audience, you have enough that you need to take care of during the event. During an operator-assisted event, that operator is going to cover some, if not all, of the following tasks for you.
- Set up and close the event recording line
- Perform audio checks of all speaker lines
- If preferred, provide introduction and closing statements for you
- Review spelling and correct pronunciation of names, terms, etc. prior to the live event
- Moderate audio Q&A (if needed)
- Keep all participant lines muted, if desired
Once your event is completed, the operator will remain on the line with you to debrief and be available to answer any questions you may have.
An operator-assisted event provides you with support, but more importantly, it provides peace of mind in knowing you are not alone during a live event. Our experienced and helpful staff is always there to help or answer questions, and we share a common goal – to make your event a big success!
