Virtual Gala Planning Guide
This virtual planning guide can help you kick off your virtual gala! My background in television helped me understand two things: Live events are great but videotaped events might be better! They can have the feeling of a live event, but without the room for error.
If you do decide on the live idea, we do recommend hiring a zoom expert — they can be your host and will help your technical needs. You can find experts on UPWORK — however, you need to interview your host in the same way that you would interview any potential employee and make sure you ask for examples and references of work.
