Managing Speaker Interactions Through Speaker Hub

Beth Farrar

March 20, 2015

    Speakers are the core of the event or conference experience. Event planners and staff need a convenient way to engage with speakers and request action when appropriate. LeadingAge, a Nimble AMS client, was looking for a better way to manage this process.

    Speaker Hub Components

    Speaker Login Page
    Selected and prospective speakers can easily log into the Speaker Hub with their existing LeadingAge Credentials or create a new account if they do not already have one.
    The Hub Landing Page
    Once authenticated, the speaker is taken to a landing page and can see all of the available opportunities/events.
    Access blocked to non-speakers
     Hub Home Page
    Speaker Bio Page
    Registration Details Page
    AV Request Pages
    Upload Presentation Pages
    Speaker Evaluations Page

    Speaker Hub Highlights

    Speakers can:

    • Gain direct access to the Speaker Hub through a custom login page (less clicks). Once logged in, speakers can go to “My Conferences” to find events that they are participating in.
    • Update their contact information and biographies.
    • Submit specific audio/visual requests (Mic, Wifi etc).
    • Upload a document such as a presentation.
    • Get a reminder to register if they have not already done so and receive instructions on where to go to register.
    • Review peer-evaluation scores post-event.

    LeadingAge Staff can manage Speaker Hub elements through the staff-view known as “Session Planner”. Here they can:

    • Control access to the Speaker Hub on a per-event basis.
    • Upload event-specific logos and graphics so speakers immediately recognize where to do.
    • Remind speakers of important deadlines, with the system automatically knowing the last time a deliverable was updated. For example, if a speaker has not recently saved a bio or an item is blank, the deliverable is marked as incomplete until speaker makes a selection and saves it.
    • Track overdue or missing speaker deliverables with reports in Nimble AMS.
