Call for Heralds 33C3


Are you able to speak English (and ideally also German) fluently in front of a large crowd?
You have a ticket or you are sure to get one? (This year we can not help you to get one if you are to late)
Be prepared – for the time being, you might be the face of the Congress!

We are in the process of building our team of Heralds in preparation for 33C3. We will use a similar process like last year. Before the Event, we will have a short Video call with you. Please be prepared to show us your stageskills with a short improvised moderation in front of your webcam.

What are Heralds? Heralds vocalize general announcements to the audience, manage the Q&A after the talks and – most importantly – introduce the speakers to the crowd. Like last year, we want Heralds to be able to focus solely on the speaker and the topic of the talk at hand.

We want you to be the best Heralds possible, so from now on, Heralds will not only be responsible for all the talks within a four hour time slot, you are also given the possibility to sign up early (read: now!), enabling you to prepare in advance of the Congress. We hope this will put Heralds less „on the spot“ and provide an even better Congress experience for everyone involved.
