An Event Amplifier is an audience expander, an experience enhancer and an idea spreader for conferences.

This blog is written by event amplifier Kirsty Pitkin, who uses online tools and social networks to create amplified and hybrid events which facilitate discussion and resource sharing, enhancing the experiences of delegates and remote participants alike.

Kirsty PitkinKirsty Pitkin began her career as a creative writer, first studying Creative Arts at Bath Spa University, followed by De Montfort University, graduating with an MA in Creative Writing in New Media in 2008. Since then she has gone on to pioneer the use of social media for customer services in the public transport industry and is now the Creative Director of training and communications company TConsult Ltd.  In her spare time, Kirsty volunteers with Girlguiding UK as a Brownie leader and District Commissioner, and also recently assisted Oxfam South West with their digital media campaigning.

Kirsty leads TConsult’s event amplification services, working with event organisers to provide live blogging, live video streaming, event reporting and remote audience support.  She designs custom event amplification and hybrid event plans, which can be open access or premium access – enabling event organisers to decide whether they want to simply spread their message and promote their event, or derive an additional revenue stream from making their event available online.

The number one principle for all of Kirsty’s work is that it should support the remote audience and engage them actively in the live event.  Good event amplification means physical presence at the venue should be less of a problem and far more people should be able to get actively involved.  Kirsty experiments with innovative techniques and is working to develop codes of best practice to achieve this ambitious goal.
