Your goal this week
Make your final preparations.
Build a library of photographs, which you can use to promote your services, beyond Law Week. Use photos in your newsletters, social media, and website. (As well as promotional material for your future Law Week events!)
You don’t need to hire a professional. However, do…
- Use a decent camera (a good iPhone or Android phone is fine)
- Appoint someone whose sole task is to photograph your event (or someone who doesn’t have many other duties during your event)
- Make a list of photos you intend to capture, for example:
- Attendees smiling and interacting with each other
- Your presenter in action
- Attendees reading your resources
- People arriving at your venue
- Your staff interacting with your attendees
- Brief your photographer with this list
- Ask your photographer to share your photos with us by uploading them to this link
Feeling practised and in the right frame of mind for presenting allows you to better communicate your message. Being a fluent presenter also gives your audience a good impression. Remember, you are representing your business or community.
- Rehearse your presentation
- Run a technical rehearsal if you can
- For tips and tricks, watch our webinars:
Make sure you have the resources to handle the number of people attending your event. For example, do you have enough seats for elderly attendees? Do you have enough resources to hand out? If you’re catering, do you have enough food? Is your space big enough? Are you COVIDsafe?
In the flurry of activity surrounding an event, it’s easy to forget to make a note of how many people attend. Set yourself a reminder so that you have this information for the post–event survey.
It’s important to gain consent to ensure you don’t break any laws. It’s also good practise to respect your participants’ privacy, particularly if your attendees are young and/or people in vulnerable circumstances in the community.
Note: After Law Week, we will be asking you to share your recording with us via YouTube. (We will provide instructions on how to do this after Law Week.)
Give your attendees the best experience and welcome a wider range of people.
You may want to consider the following:
- An Auslan interpreter
- A language translator
- Hearing loop
- Closed captioning
- Wheelchair accessibility
Things will get busier the closer you get to Law Week. It’s a good idea to prepare your final social media push early. Consider scheduling it, to get it off your plate as things heat up.
If you need ideas, use our social media templates.
