Team & Volunteers

The quality of your team = the quality of your event

A great team makes a great event. It’s as simple as that. It’s important to gather a group of people around you who are excited about fulfilling a role during your event.

You need a team to run the experience. Assess who you really need to run an event and fill those gaps. You should divide your team into backend and frontend. The backend team takes care of technical matters, event production, etc. Your frontend team takes care of the floor management, speaker liaising, hosting, etc.

Your team should consist of volunteers, but it’s paramount to find the right people for the job. Remember that volunteers do what they do not only for the contribution, but also for their own personal growth. Make sure volunteers are continuously learning and growing in a fun and playful environment. How your volunteers feel inside your team reflects on your event.

Roles of your team
