Last week, i was involved with Reaktor Breakpoint, a tech, design,
business and future conference with about 600 attendees and twenty-odd speakers.
Unlike with last
Breakpoint in 2015, i wasn’t involved in the planning bits, i just worked with the execution. On the
surface, my job sounds trivial. I was to make sure all presenters’ slides were delivered to the right
stages, in time, before each presenter’s show, and looking awesome.
I like to emphasize the last word of the previous paragraph, because that is your job and the job of
nearly everyone working backstage or in production: making the presenter look, sound, and feel awesome.
While delivering slides may sound like the job of a glorified runner, it was actually quite a bit of
logistics than i’d originally expected.
