Halloween is upon us, which means it's time for the Event Tech Podcast to cover a truly spooky topic: scope creep. See, it even has the word 'creep' in it! So, what does it mean? When your project's vision and goals change so much that they no longer fit the initial agreement, you've got yourself a pretty bad case of scope creep. Not only is it a living nightmare for all project managers, but it also negatively affects everybody else in the process: your team, your stakeholders, and your attendees.
In an industry in which changes and flexibility are the norm even if you've got the best event timeline and you know your event goals inside and out, scope creep is all the more dangerous. Brandt and Will have both experienced it, so they've decided to share their negative experiences with the listeners and come up with some solutions that help curb this fiendish phenomenon.

It's been 18 months since many event profs first encountered Zoom. Back then, turning on the laptop camera and joining the call successfully was already considered a huge success. But as time went by, the standards for virtual event production started rising. Presenters and team members alike learned how to look better on camera. Event technology masters, such as our hosts, Will and Brandt, gave out advice on the best virtual speaker gear. As we're slowly stepping into the third year of the pandemic, we've all come to understand that looking your best on video calls matters ... Or did we?
The Event Tech podcast duo thinks that there's still room for improvement. And so, they decided to go back to basics and revisit this good old topic. It doesn't just apply to event planners who are planning their next big event. If you ever need to hop on a call, you should give this episode a listen. You might feel called out, but remember, Will and Brandt are only trying to help and make the events industry a better place. Without further ado, let's talk tech!
