(Report by V Elite Leader Shiraz Deshmukh, Crew Chief)
There were 18 of us
InService during the ONE VOICE/I'M ALIVE event in Tanzania on August 16.
We were all very excited and keen to be there and be part of it.
Security (6 InService), Registration (4), Set-up (4), Hospitality (2),
Music/AV (1) and Programme (1) departments were prepared and debriefed
prior to the event. Our highest priorities were the Security for VP
Donna Imson and VC Angela Fadil and problem-free registration and
security for participants.
did the InService briefing meeting as early as August 12 to prepare
ourselves for the event. We took care of the seating set-up and other
arrangements in the venue and the VIP holding area the night before. We
also made sure to test all audio and video clips and to rehearse the
play times so that everything goes smoothly and achieves the desired
InService were asked to report at 6:30am on August 16th for the
registration. Tickets for the event were pre-sold, although there were
also those who were walk-in participants who bought tickets at the venue
and we made sure they were properly taken care of.
faced a couple of minor setbacks with the microphones and the
registration. We had arranged for 4 microphones for the event, but
during rehearsal testing we found out that we could not use all 4
without getting audio feedback and interference which was bound to be
very distracting. We ended up using 2 microphones: 1 for the speakers
and 1 for the participants. It worked very well.
concern was that some of the participants had paid in advance for the
event but had shown up without their tickets. This was easily remedied
by checking the list of names of those who had pre-paid for the tickets.
Overall, the I'm Alive event was amazing and everything went perfectly.
