In order to guide you through the virtual event process, we have put together these instructions on how live and pre-recording sessions will be curated for the event.


The below requirements will apply for all sessions 

  • Make sure the camera is 16x9  (landscape)
  • Do not have a bright light  behind the presenter
  • Mount the camera to ensure a steady video
  • Ensure you are positioned in  a soft room with no background noise and limited objects
  • Be as close to the microphone as possible
  • Leave some silence at the beginning and end of the recording for editing and transitions
  • If you have access to an ethernet cable for a stronger connection, please ensure you use this
  • Please disconnect from any VPNs you may be using or shut down other programmes you have open prior to connecting to the Zoom link for a more stable connection
  • Test your connection speed, browser and operating system version, microphone and webcam HERE



Please record your session at home. Below includes some guidance on how to use Powerpoint, Zoom or Microsoft teams to record your session.


Please note that should you choose to record at home this will be the final file that is uploaded into the platform. We will not be able to make any changes to files sent so please ensure they are good quality and you adhere to our technical requirements.

A NOTE TO ALL: A kind reminder that all pre-recorded sessions will need to be completed and submitted no later than Friday 25th September
