Four ways to host a watch party for one of our events
Planning to attend one of our events? Invite your colleagues too and let our event kickstart a conversation about well-being—a conversation you can continue directly with your co-workers if you'd like.
Consider everyone's schedule and whether watching live or another time would work best for everyone. After each of our calendar events, you'll find replay videos listed the next day.
Watch together in a conference room
If you and your colleagues work on-site, book a conference room where you can all watch it together, whether live or a replay, and then discuss.
Attend live online first with a follow-up group chat
Watch live online with us and then create a separate Teams or Zoom call to get together as a group. I recommend sending out a calendar invite with two links:
- First, let's all watch the [event name] together at [link]
When it ends, join our [college/area/team/etc. name]'s call for a post-event discussion at [link]
Watch the replay together via Zoom screen share
Watch the replay online at a date and time convenient for your group using Zoom's Share Screen feature and enabling sound and video optimization. Here's a quick how-to:
- First, queue up the video you want to play and then start your Zoom meeting. On the bottom of the Zoom window, click the Share Screen button and select the browser window that has the video you're ready to play.
But wait! Before you click Share, look for two checkboxes down at the lower-left corner of the sharing options tab. You'll see options to Share computer sound and Optimize screen sharing for video clip. Make sure both boxes are checked. Now click Share and you’re set. As the host, if needed, you can always adjust the volume on the video player itself to make it easier to hear the other participants.
Consider doing a hybrid of option 1 and 2 or 3, if some colleagues are on-site and others are remote.
