Groovy Gecko, leading webcast provider, today announced that it worked with book publisher, Random House, to stream an exclusive sold out event with acclaimed columnist and best-selling author, Caitlin Moran.
The author, of Galaxy Book of the Year 2011 How To Be A Woman spoke about her latest book, Moranthology, a collection of her columns in which she discusses everything from drinking with Kylie and Doctor Who to The Big Society and Twitter.
The event, presented by Time Out Live & Foyles, was streamed live from Bloomsbury Theatre. It included an interview with the author as well as questions from the online audience as well as the live audience.
Fans were able to submit questions in advance via email as well as join the discussion on twitter using the hashtag #caitlinlive
“We are delighted to work with Random House on this live webcast,” commented Jake Ward, Business Development Director, Groovy Gecko. “Caitlin Moran is extremely popular around the world and so it was essential to offer a robust and risk free webcasting service to her fans. The webcast enabled those fans who couldn’t either get tickets for the event or live outside the UK to still be part of the launch night.
“Events like these are always well-attended, especially with an acclaimed author such as Caitlin Moran. Webcasting on the night allowed us to take this special event out to a wider audience and we were very pleased with the thousands of views we received.’ Louise Jones, Marketing Manager, Random House. “Groovy Gecko was a natural choice to help us with this event, given its experience delivering seemless live webcasts to a worldwide audience for a variety of high profile clients.”
