What is team heralds all about?

Speaking in front of an audience, big or small, can be unnerving. It his the Heralds task to make the speakers experience as smooth as possible. This includes introducing the speaker on the stage and moderating a Q&A session afterwards but there are many more things that need attention, are people seated, are camera's running, is the sound working, does the speaker have special requests, are emergency exits free? Just some things that need attention before, during and after a talk. We will need one or two Heralds per stage for every planned talk. If you think you're up for this please join our team. If you feel like you might need some guidance, no problem! We will organise introduction meetings and team up novice Heralds with more experienced ones.


We're looking for a second person to help out to avoid a SPOF :)


Team Heralds work depends on the amount of speakers and stages that will be used at MCH. This means that team Heralds will not need to come into action before January. (@witchdog, please adjust this date to your thinking)

In the meantime, this page will be updated with information, tipps and tricks that were gained during the previous event.

About the amount of volunteers aka angels needed during the event

This number depends on the amount of speakers (which depends on the cfp's and amount of stages) that will be present during the event. These numbers will probably be available in February (!please adjust date, this is my estimate only!).

So far the rough estimate would be 50 volunteers with 4 hour shifts each. (!Again, please adjust date, this is my estimate only!)
