24 October 2020, UPM - During these difficult times due to COVID-19 pandemic, ACUPM is pleased to provide many ways for our alumni to stay connected to UPM and alumni community. Alumni P.K.P is a webinar series bringing together alumni professionals in the community to share their expertise and work experiences with the students, staff and community.
The Alumni P.K.P Programme series 24 was presented by Miss Norzaina Darus, Head of Corporate Relation Division, Corporate Strategy and Communications Office (CosComm), UPM. This sharing entitled "New Normal in Organising Event: Challenges, Adjustment, Implementation". During this sharing session, speaker shared her experiences in conducting event during pandemic Covid-19. She explained how to conduct the event due to this current situation, as what adjustments can be made for the implementation of the event and the relevant method in organising online event that can be applied for the current new normal.
She highlighted that feeling confused, unsure, and overwhelmed when it comes to online event planning tools is normal. With the variety of options available online, most people find themselves asking what, which, and how to plan an online event. As with virtual event software, there is a lot more to planning and organising an online event than just choosing a streaming platform. Planning virtual events requires a little more effort but will likely have a better success payoff once your online event goes live.
The program successfully attracted 90 participants in the Cisco Webex site and 1740 views on live streaming of UPM Alumni Facebook.
