As you may have seen over the past couple of weeks, we have been busy hosting virtual events for our community to take part in!
We know that while working from home and not going out, feelings of loneliness and isolation could start to creep in, so we’re committed to running at the very least, one event a week to keep our community entertained and connected. These will be a mixture of fun events, educational webinars, community-focused coffee mornings, content clinics and much more.

How do the pub quizzes work?
We’ve already run two very successful pub quizzes and have our third one coming up this Monday at 6pm (GMT). There has been great demand for both events, with Wednesday’s pub quiz being attended by nearly 100 participants, with 42 teams from all over the world (quite literally)!
The pub quiz works in the following way:
- We ask everyone who would like to take part to register via Eventbrite (you can see all our upcoming events here)
- Ahead of the quiz, we will email everyone a Zoom link and the instructions. It’s best if you download the Zoom app, and check your audio and video are both working! We like the “pub” to feel sociable, so it’s always better if you can turn your video on
- In this email you’ll also receive a link to a Google Form, which is where you will submit your team’s answers. Teams can be up to 6 members
- We open the Zoom waiting room (or our “virtual pub”) 15 minutes before the quiz start time so we can all say hi and have a drink and a catch up
This lunch time, we hosted the Traverse Creator’s Brunch, which comprised of a panel and Q&A featuring three wonderful speakers: Emily Leary from A Mummy Too, Brendan van Son and Kash Bhattacharya aka Budget Traveller.
The panelists were joined by 50 content creators, and discussion covered everything from how to stay positive and creative in these difficult times to diversifying your income and making money through stock photography and video sites. We’ll be putting together a blog post with some of the key takeaways from this as well as with some top tips for selling your photography and videography on stock sites, so stay tuned!
Kash – “This is a good time to invest in yourself. There’s so many courses out there. This is a great time to learn something”
Emily – “if you’re not in the mental headspace to be productive [at this time] then that’s ok too”
