A New Event Mindset
Creating and hosting events in the time of social distancing requires adapting past norms to new technologies. The following development guide is intended to help plan, produce, and facilitate events that transform attending online events from viewership to participation. It starts with creating a checklist of objectives born from your live event experiences.

Step One — Set Objectives
Start by imagining your last event, every activity, interaction, company objective, and attendee objective. List them and desired outcomes. Not the practical event conventionalities, but the reason those elements were part of the event. For instance, if you held a coffee and danish table open 30 minutes before your event, the objective was not to feed your attendees coffee and danishes, it was to give attendees a chance to meet fellow attendees, warm up to sharing an experience together, and to transition their frame of mind from home, office and traffic, to "I am here and ready".
