About this Episode

The greatest thing about running a conference online? We can organise it between 3 people who live far apart from each other! Make no mistake, there's a lot of work and care in Women in Language. But when it all comes together, this is one fantastic event.

Behind the Scenes at Women in Language

In this episode, Shannon and I share how we use each of these tools for making Women in Language. (some of the links below are affiliate links)

  • Teachable both for hosting our own course AND for collecting all information for our speakers
  • Mailchimp for our emails to speakers and attendees, and for our newsletter
  • Zapier to connect the apps we use
  • Asana to stay as organised as possible
  • Youtube live & live chat
  • Ecamm live via Skype
  • Zoom (for the Speak Easy sessions)
  • Google Docs & Forms

For promotion, we use Canva to make the images and various social media schedulers including SocialBee.
