Level up your Virtual Events with Jared Jacobsen | Episode 107

Recently we’ve seen such massive changes as we move online, create more live events and morph in our own ways. Can we look forward to what is next without a magical crystal ball? How do we still help people connect and share our awesome Direct Selling content? 

Let’s catch up with an old friend and master of behind the scenes magic – AV expert from Corporate Theatre Jared Jacobsen to find out more about Direct Selling events online and in person, and how you can be great at sound and videos too! Six years prior to the pandemic, Jared and his team were already live-streaming so they naturally pivoted to online events.

“Going forward, everyone’s going to the hybrid method – let’s bring in those who can attend, and let’s live stream for those who wouldn’t normally be able to.” 

In this episode, we discuss navigating the world of online events, videos, and practical tips from a pro. You’ll want to grab a pen and paper ready for this one. Enjoy!
