Adding a Speaker to a Product & Granting Speaker Access

Admins have the ability to add a speaker to any Product on their Elevate site. Adding a speaker accomplishes a few things. First, the speaker will display for end-users within the Speaker tab for the Product. Here end-users can view the speaker's headshot, bio, title and company information, as well as any disclosures they may have.

Once a speaker has been added to a Product, you may grant the speaker Speaker Access. Granting speaker access to a speaker allows them to access a live event during the early login time set within the Live Web Content Component and enter the event as a speaker/presenter with applicable permissions within the live broadcast.


You must first have a web content, video or audio Component created before you can add a Speaker.

Adding a Speaker

  1. Navigate to the Product you would like to add the speaker to. From within the Product editor, click the Speakers option from the left-hand navigation.

  1. Click on Add Speaker. This will open a modal to add the speaker. Begin by clicking the Speaker dropdown menu. Doing so will allow you to search for existing speakers, as well as add new speakers. If the speaker does not already exist, click the Add New Speaker option from the dropdown menu.

  2. Enter an optional speaker biography and/or disclosure in the Bio and Disclosures WYSIWYG editors.
  3. Upload an image of the speaker in the Speaker Image field.
  4. Select the Components the speaker should be associated with from the Associated Components dropdown menu. When the dropdown menu is selected, any applicable Components the speaker can be associated with will appear.
