FastForward15: The Soaring 20s
The brief for this event was a challenge for all mentees on the Fast Forward 15 mentoring programme to create an event with no budget to raise money for our chosen charity, Girls Rock London. We used our industry contacts, suppliers and friends to originally plan a 20s themed live event at Two Temple Place. However when Covid-19 happened and our industry completely stopped we could have canceled but we wanted to challenge ourselves and showcase what could be done with digital. 4 of us set out to pivot our live event to digital in 6 weeks, we had no previous knowledge of creating digital events but enlisted the help of agency Sparq to bring our vision to reality with their bespoke platform.
You can view our event platform here until the 19th July 2020
Social Media feedback
Thanks you so much for the kind words, all of you were one of the best teams I have worked on a virtual event, especially around organisation, communication and having an objective that you work towards as a team. From myself personally I always say that you can only put on as good a show as the client trusts you to do.
So thank you for trusting me to get the balance between TV, virtual event and stream! I think we put on a great show that shows the balance of live presenters, interaction and TV quality content.
I passed on your thanks to the team, and in return they have asked me to let you know they loved working with you and would happily do more shows for you, which is quite the compliment from them!
