Learn the Maestro Technology! Run Your Own Calls Whenever You Want!
Demand for InterOccupation communication services using IntertOccupy’s Maestro Conference call technology grew steadily in the opening months of 2012. We are actively developing a growing team of Call Facilitators and Technical Assistants to help support more productive and creative connections between individuals, work groups and local General Assemblies across the Occupy Movement.
TRAINING ON THE MAESTRO CONFERENCE CALL SYSTEM
InterOccupy will hold a Maestro Training Class for call requesters and anyone who wants to provide tech assistance on their calls. Classes are arranged on an as-needed basis, please request via
Maestro Training Class: Arranged by mutual availability – contact firstname.lastname@example.org (2 hours)
The training is intended for facilitators and tech assistants on Maestro calls. It covers the preparation and procedures for conducting calls, an overview of the Maestro system, practice on the Maestro simulator, managing stacks and polls, controlling the microphone, and beginning and ending a call.
Other skills you’ll learn are: capturing contact info, forming and rectifying breakout groups, customizing information, and emergency procedures.
Get a Head Start!
Maestro has good resources on their site that will help you get up to speed, especially for a smaller and fairly straightforward call. We suggest watching the videos on “quick start,” using the conductor’s interface and basic breakout groups, and practicing on the simulator. These resources can be found here: http://myaccount.maestroconference.com/support.
