International – Seminar Critique

The content of this seminar covered a broad range of topics that were very relevant to all of the students regardless of whether they had considered ever working internationally. The topics were delivered well and the discussion was very interesting. The guests each had very relevant and notable anecdotes.

I liked the use of two hosts – it gave the seminar a change of pace and allowed the hosts of bounce off each other. The different topics that were asked about and discussed were able to keep up the pace and maintain the attention of the audience. It also seemed like the questions were fairly distributed among the guests.

I was initially slightly confused by the fancy nature of the setup, which was very different to the ruggedness of most of the previous nature. But it was later pointed out to me that it was based on the concept of their promo video, where evil masterminds had invited other evil masterminds to help them be more evil/reveal media secrets.

The posters, postcards and paper aeroplanes were a very cute touch. It really tied the entire theme together. I especially enjoyed the main setup of the stage, where the masterminds were sitting on lounges and sipping from martini glasses.

The promotion was the only downfall of the entire project. Like many of the seminars before it, the social media promotion was not quite varied and the posts were done very close together, cluttering the newsfeed. However, I did enjoy the different types of posts.
I especially enjoyed the posters that were displayed around campus. They were well designed.
