We filmed the Marketing Help For Coaches / Coaching Millions conference on Saturday. The speakers at the coaching conference were Milana Leshinsky, from the USA and Hannah McNamara who is based in London. The attendees seemed to thoroughly enjoy the experience.
We filmed at a conference on Rural Areas, helping them to reach a Europe-wide by streaming online as we filmed. The sessions have also been made available online. However, the conference organisers also wanted a quick snapshot of the conference, and the field trip the following day. So we got out walking boots on, clambered on the bus and tagged along, bringing all the footage together to give an idea of how the whole conference went And the organiser gives us a great testimonial for how the streaming went!
Today we streamed a conference centred around issues facing rural areas, so depopulation, access to broadband, financial stability.
The most memorable workshop was this one where the speaker used a dead tree to get delegates engaged!
The stream went well, especially since the hotel chosen was appropriately in the middle of the Norfolk countryside, and their broadband connection was initially limited, but we managed to get it boosted!

We filmed at the All Together Now conference for the DIUS earlier in the year, turning the footage into a clip to be added to the project’s .ning site as a way of showing what happened throughout the day. There were a whole bunch of speakers and breakout sessions.
My favourite speaker is Ruby Pesudo (who features around 2 minutes in) her insight into young people’s perceptions of social media are great.
Today we streamed the Norfolk Green Strategy conference from the King’s Centre in Norfolk, so participants unable to attend in person could still engage with the conference.
Norfolk is under great pressure from global warming, given that even a relatively small rise in sea levels will flood areas of East Anglia. This pressure is ever increasing since Scientists revise their estimates of how quickly this will happen on a seemingly monthly basis, and not in our favour.
Sometimes, the mounting evidence of how the Earth is really going into meltdown gets overwhelming, so it was inspiring to hear positive ideas of how we can rethink how we live our lives to be have less impact on the environment.
The key moment for me was when asked whose responsibility was it to lead climate change, the room was unanimous that it was our responsibility as individuals to be more environmentally conscious, not something that should be left to government.
The leaf is one of the pledges that attendees made to signify their intention to help address these issues.
Yesterday we filmed at the All Together Now conference, which was held at Channel 4 in Westminster.
I’ve always loved their idents where the C4 logo is revealed in rock faces/pylons/tower blocks. While many of those logos are digitially created, they’ve created a real one outside their offices. It’s playful, clever and sophisticated, everything that I associate with C4. And appropriately for our filming it was raining, so the umbrellas were dripping!
If you click on the photo, you’ll be able to see a series of pictures showing how logo is actually nothing like the straight forward “4″ shape it looks in this photo!
Yesterday we were in Brussels streaming the Public Service 2.0 conference, where a wide range of speakers came to talk about their web 2.0 projects, all of which were based around government topics. The conference was organsied by FutureGov.
We streamed the conference live through our ConferenceXtra service, a collaboration with Gallomanor. People could watch the conference live and join in the conversation through a chat room. We had people from as far afield as London, Italy and America!
As most of the people were avid twitterers, we managed to hit Twitter’s scoreboard of most tweeted topics!
Last week we filmed a conference for Norfolk County Council, at which Meera Spillett was the keynote speaker.
The key discussion topic throughout the day was the CAF, a process used to co-ordinate child support services. It was really uplifting hearing talk of how this process has helped children facing a wide range of challenges.
This project is part of our ConferenceXtra, the new service we’re providing in collaboration with Gallomanor, one of our long standing clients. We aim to help bring conferences to as wide an audience as possible, through streaming and social media.
Yesterday we filmed at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir, where the annual C4 Advisory Board were due to meet.
We filmed several of the Board members talking about why they enjoy attending the session, and what they get from it.
It was a joy to film at Le Manoir, everwhere you pointed the camera looked fantastic. We had physically remove Gordon our camerman from the Japanese Tea garden or he would have happily shot there all day!
I saw this ad at City airport on Sunday night, it is for Total.
I have no idea why they put “imagine” in front of their tag line:
“Imagine if confronting climate change and solving energy needs were inseparable”
The two issues have been inseperable for decades! There’s no imagine about it!
Coincidentally, I was flying to Amsterdam for a conference on Metering. All talk was on Smart Metering, the ability to give the consumer as much information as possible about their energy usage so they can manage and decrease their consumption. It was inspiring to hear chat consistently talking about energy provision and reduction in Co2 as intrinsically linked issues.
When I got back and reviewed this poster, it just really doesn’t read as forward thinking, it sounds like Total hasn’t really got a grasp of the issue yet at all!
