For the Live Event:

  • When it's time for your presentation, head to the backstage with the link provided to you by the Organizer of the event.  (Link: https://app.hopin.to/events/virtual-toronto-entrepreneurs-conference/backstage/a6673fcc-5864-4b47-9c02-6e7d91524fa0)   

  • Click "Participate" at the top of the Stage screen

  • You'll need to give browser permission for Hopin to use your camera and mic.

  • Choose your audio and video devices and click Apply.

  • Please ensure your PC sound and camera is turned on

  • The organizer will have to allow you permission to enter the backstage area so please wait until they let you in (you will receive a prompt when they allow entry)

  • The organizer will meet you backstage just before your presentation and will chat with you backstage to ensure everything is working – they will also come on screen an intro you and your presentation

  • Once everything is ready to go – the organizer will select “broadcast” – it will take 10-30 seconds to go live.  When it is “going live” you will see small text in the left hand corner which is yellow and states “going live” – once we are live it will turn to a red “live”

Important Things to Note:

  • Please ensure your PC has both working audio and video for this presentation

  • It is a good idea to have a back-up computer/IPAD just in case your computer stops working

  • Please ensure your computer is completely charged for the event

  • The live broadcast has a 10 second lag from the actual presentation you are giving backstage

  • Please turn off all electronic devices near your computer as it will create radio noise in the speaking session

  • Please ensure you only have ONE event browser open for Hopin or the tabs may interfere with your presentation

  • Please ensure you have a blank wall behind you to eliminate distractions

 

Sharing Powerpoint Slides:

Here are the steps for presenting slides on Stage:

  1. Open your deck in a new tab.

  2. In the Backstage, click Screenshare. You camera will turn off automatically. This makes your slides full screen on the front stage.

  3. Select the tab or application with your presentation. If possible, set up a separate monitor to be able to view the event chat and your slides.

  4. Present from the Backstage, so you can toggle between Backstage chat and Event chat.

Remember: All Stage segments are recorded! 

 

Chat: If you would like to chat with the organizer during the event – please look for either “Rachel Mitchell” or “Marc Belaiche” on the right hand side and chat with us directly.

 

Tip: While participating on the Backstage, you can turn off your camera and mic using the controls at the bottom of your screen — this will make you disappear from the front stage completely, event though your gray avatar is still showing in the backstage. It's a sneaky way to transition smoothly between speakers.
