PRE-RECORDING YOUR PRESENTATION
PRE-RECORDING YOUR PRESENTATION

OPTION ONE - PRE-RECORDING WITH INFORMA

Due to COVID19, we are all fairly new to the world of virtual events, with this in mind we are helping you through the process of pre-recording your presentation. 

A speaker briefing was held on the 16th July that covered everything you need to know when pre-recording your sessions with us. If you were unable to make it or would like to watch it again please click below:
