Keynote

This is just like one of the other rooms, the staff takes care of the speakers needs, water, sound etc, keeps the audience calm, coordinates the q&a session which should follow every talk. You should also signal the speaker how much time he has left, for this we will provide signs saying 15, 10 and 5 minutes. After the speech the staff will stay in the room for about an hour to help the speaker to finish up look for trash etc., in other words make the room ready for the next speech.


Tasks in short:

- introduce speaker

- keep audience calm

- show speaker time left

- moderate q&a and block unqualified questions which do not relate to the topic

- help speaker to wrap up after the talk

- clean a bit and reposition chairs etc

- help next speaker to set up

- hand over to the next "staff-team"
