It was educational, insightful, timely, fun…and it was a Prerecorded VIRTUAL! We rarely if ever repeat speakers, but Karen is the exception.

Frequently Asked Questions
Live-streaming sessions are more interactive and more personal with customized content to fit your needs.
Pre-record eases the stress level when it comes to executing the event. Fewer things could go wrong!
Pre-recorded adds the WOW Factor. While a live virtual event can be more interactive, a prerecorded session can look more professional and be more exciting. Pre-recorded virtual presentations merge the best elements of an in-person keynote with great post-production special effects including graphics, sound effects, and music.
Hybrid is where the presentation is recorded, but the speaker is communicating live through the chat while the presentation is playing and continues live afterwards with a live Q&A session.
Virtual events formats differ in five ways:
- Shorter presentations, typically between 30-45 minutes
- Moderated Q&As: About 15 additional minutes are spent answering attendee questions
- Interactive: My programs could include interactive games, live polls, music, animated visuals, and break out rooms.
- Pre-Recorded: Keynotes are pre-recorded in advance
- Customized content: Karen tailors her content for the specific audience, often in real-time
Regardless of the format, conferences and meetings are about communicating relevant and exciting new ideas that spark discussion and keep the conversation going. Whether it’s through live Q&A, real-time polls, or games, there are a number of ways to get your audience to participate in an online event.
A common assumption about virtual and pre-recorded events is that they are much less expensive because there is no travel involved.
While it is true that there are no travel expenses associated with a virtual or pre-recorded event, there are additional production costs that can often be as much or more than travel expenses.
A few things to consider when budgeting your next virtual event:
- Regardless of format, you are still paying for the speaker's content, knowledge, and value-based expertise.
- Cost will vary based on the amount of customization you need
- Your audience size will effect the overall cost
Depending on your goals, and your audience, you might find that a prerecorded “on-stage” style presentation or keynote is the right fit, while others prefer something closer to a webinar, with presentation slides and increased participation and learning.
There’s no such thing as one-size-fits all! Try to incorporate some form of Q&A or moderated discussion to keep the topic alive and the conversation flowing.
