How can I add Speakers? (People tab)

Add your event speakers to Brella and match them with their keynote in the schedule.

In this article, we'll cover these topics:

Adding & editing speakers

Navigate to the People tab and find the Speakers tab in your Event Manager. Then press Activate to fill in the details of your first speaker.

You can add these details:

  • Honorific
  • First, middle & last names
  • Title & company name
  • Photo
  • Bio

Once you're finished, press Save.

Note: Only the first and last name is required, but we recommend filling out as much information as possible for each speaker.

Your speakers can be found by attendees as soon as you press Save. You can edit their details at any time by selecting the Edit icon on the speaker you want to edit.

Tip: We recommend adding all speakers first before creating your schedule, or adding speakers to your agenda.

After adding all your speakers, you can add your schedule and find all your speakers in a neat list when you create different slots.

If you already have a schedule made, proceed to the next step to learn how to match them with their respective keynotes.

Matching speakers to your schedule

Navigate to the Schedule tab and then to the content slot you want to attach your speaker to. (Learn how to create your schedule here.)

Select the speaker, press Select, then choose their role. You can choose a pre-made role, or write your own.

You can add as many speakers as necessary, as well as any number of roles.

Note! Speaker details can only be edited from the Speakers tab (on the People tab). We recommend adding all speakers before adding them to your schedule.

If you notice that your speaker information is incorrect, or your speakers change, you can edit them in the speakers tab (see here). Any changes you make will reflect in your schedule too.

How speakers look to your attendees

Your attendees can find your speakers in two places:

  • in the dedicated Speakers tab from the main navigation
  • from the Schedule card

Below is how it will look to your attendees in the desktop version (next.brella.io).
