Welcome to #BrewEdEYOnline
Due to the COVID-19 Lockdown I decided to launch an online version of #BrewEdEY for the sector and to deliver this via Zoom software to make it interactive and accessible to all who wished to attend; I was delighted when close friend and colleague, Aaron Bradbury, volunteered to support me in this venture.
All of the places were taken within two hours of launching them on Eventbrite so we released more and again they were gone in less than an hour. We then took the decision to record the presentations along with the Q & A sessions so that they could be shared more widely after the event.
The event was a resounding success and so Aaron and I have decided that we will host more for as long as we can engage speakers and we believe that this will also bring #BrewEdEY to those people who do not have access to them within their area or cannot travel. We have also seen participants registering from Australia, China, UAE, USA and Europe so we believe that these events are truly global.
As from November 2020 we will be charging a small fee to join in on the live sessions and also to access the recordings. All of the proceeds will be going to a Charity or Cause linked to the Early Years / Early Childhood Sector to support and improve the outcomes for children and the special people who make up the workforce.
Coming soon in 2021! #BrewEdEYOnline 5
We will soon be announcing the confirmed date and line up for our next BrewEdEYOnline, so please stay in touch with us via this webpage and our Social Media for all of the updates.
How Does it Work?
The day starts around 10.15 am when we ask you to join in the Zoom session so that you are ready for us to commence at 10.30 with the 'Welcome' and first speaker.
We will ask you to turn off video and mute yourself throughout the presentations to ensure that there is no interruption of anyone's enjoyment. Comments and questions can be posted via the 'Chat' function on Zoom, and these will be collated by Aaron Bradbury ready for the end of the presentation, and Aaron will also ask you if you would like to ask your question or make your comment directly with the Speaker; we do encourage you to turn on your video for this part of the session so you can interact directly.
The Q & A session and discussion is around 20 minutes, allowing us to provide a short break before the next Keynote and for your to refresh your drinks etc. or if you prefer, turn on your video and unmute yourself (if you have not already done so!) so you can connect and network with the others present.
We aim to run each Keynote an hour apart, but this can sometimes go a little off schedule depending on the discussion and interactions, but we will try to ensure that there is time for you to take part and also to have a short break.
