How To Host a Live Stream Party
TEDxJacksonville will be the first TEDx conference ever to be live streamed globally on YouTube — at YouTube.com/TEDxTalks — On October 24th, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
FIND AN AWESOME VENUE
Whether you watch from your house, a classroom, or
a coffee shop, pick somewhere that inspires the mind.
Helpful hint: We know from experience that a little
comfortable seating is quite the crowd pleaser.
GET TECHY WITH IT
Prepare every device you need to make a live
stream go smoothly. You’ll probably need an HDMI
or VGA cord to plug your computer into your TV for
a full screen experience. If mobile is more your
thing, charge your phone so you don’t miss out
on the inspiring quotes of the day. Be sure to post
quotes, pics, and other thoughts to social media.
Don’t forget the hashtags. #TEDx #TEDxJAX
PICK A SESSION
Pick one of the four sessions,
watch a couple, or stay
connected for a full day of
ideas worth spreading.
Use the breaks for engaging
chit chat, intelligent discourse,
and the occasional agreement
Session One: 10:00-11:25 a.m.
Session Two: 12:45-1:50 p.m.
Session Three: 2:35-3:45 p.m.
Session Four: 4:30-5:50 p.m.
GET FOOD & DRINK
Don’t disappoint your guests with
prepackaged, processed food. Go pick
up supplies at the nearest coffee shop,
craft brewery, or artisanal cheese shop.
A little tapas goes a long way.
INVITE AN AUDIENCE
You’ll be bursting with inspiration today plus there’s all that
food and drink you just bought. What good are opinions and
snacks if you don’t have someone to share them with?
Invite a diverse group of people with differing beliefs.
Perhaps your close-minded cousin, your day-dreaming
boss, or your favorite hipster barista? Before they leave,
encourage everyone to use the ideas they’ve heard by
taking action in the community.
Do note that we have a few offline breaks during the day: between 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. for lunch, and again after each session. This will give you a chance to grab a quick bite, or to talk with other attendees about what you just heard by joining the online conversation on Twitter. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #TEDxJAX!.
