Sessions

Each speaker session will take 45 minutes. In the 15-minute breaks between each session, you’ll have the option either to stretch your legs and grab some refreshments, or to stick around for a partner video on the latest features and products our partners are providing the education world.

You’ll also be able to ask speakers follow-up questions during the lunch break or the after-party

After-party

During the after-party, we’ll be running a raffle with some fabulous prizes (as always) and you’ll get the chance to network with our partners, speakers and colleagues as you move between  specific break-out rooms. Choose with whom you’d like to speak, join their breakout room, chat together for as long or as short a time as you’d like (you’ll need to turn on your microphone for this part) and then move to another room to meet more people.

How?

The conference will take place on the Zoom Webinars platform using the latest Zoom features and presentation skills for a P.A.R.K. conference experience in the comfort of your own home.

If you don’t already have it, Zoom is easy to download on a computer at https://zoom.us/download or, if you’d prefer to use your phone, go to the Apple App store (for Apple phones) or Google Play store (for Android phones), search for ‘Zoom’ and press ‘install’ – it’s as easy as that.
