I absolutely loved this seminar. From promotion, to staging, to content, to guest speakers…yes, pretty much everything. I could tell that everyone was involved and everyone knew what they were doing, which was inspiring to see. There was a lot of good teamwork evident across the whole seminar, and to be honest the only complaints I would have–if I had to complain about something–then it would be the microphone/sound issues throughout the day.
THEME and STAGING: I really liked how the group used raised platforms to let the audience view the guest speakers better. The staging was also very appealing and matched the theme they were going for. The equipment was set up neatly as well, and the atmosphere in general was very welcoming. I was worried that the guest speakers would be uncomfortable in their stools, though, especially since some were wearing dresses/skirts.
CONTENT and APPROACH: Again, the content and approach was very interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed the trivia segment that allowed for audience participation, which made the seminar quite unique. Each guest speaker had something awesome to say and contribute, but I wondered if some of what they were saying was a bit repetitive in the sense that I felt like I did not learn anything particularly new or interesting, which was the same with the previous documentary group. That being said, however, the guest speakers had very stimulating discussions, and the seminar ended at just the right time so it left me feeling like I wanted to stay back a little longer. One things I guess I was reminded of was what being a feminist really means, and it was also refreshing to listen to statistical references.
PROMOTION: I do not use Facebook often, so if I see any promotion, it means there is a lot of promotion. In this case, I felt that the Femme Fatale group did a superb job at promoting on Facebook. I loved their video because it was just so exciting and suitable to the overall theme. It made me really enthusiastic about the seminar and I was looking forward to it all week!
OVERALL MARK: HD
I gave this group a HD because they pretty much set the standard for what I think a HD seminar should look like.
