I do like the simplicity of zoom but fear it is a bit too casual. leaning towards "clickmeeting"

Skype for Business provides all that you need, but unsure whether it's based off of a subscription annually or a one-off purchase. We use it for all our international clients and to our global teams of 250+. Never had any problems.

it doesn't look slick enough for our purpose. we need branding… a waiting room with agenda and presenter details etc.

www.gotowebinar.com seems to have what you are looking for. Attended a webinar from Nordea and basically he went through a slide deck with audio being transmitted as well. Do not know whether multiple people can be on or questions posed but would be surprised if it was not supported.

we use Google Hangouts at work, works fine
also no software needed - unlike skype for business etc (at least on mac)

other than that used quite a bit of WebEx in the past

webex and google hangouts doesn't satisfy above criteria. but thanks

looks like we are actually going to pay an agency to do it all for us. use up the £10k

I've attended webinars that use Adobe Connect and it's always looked pretty slick when planned right, despite being around for ages.

What’s the best portable speaker - want something under £300 - not a massive thing either but powerful enough for decent sound

Beats Pill+ to me is great for the money and sound out of such a small thing is really good.

Bose Soundlink Mini for ultra-small or JBL Xtreme for huge sound at American football size.

I got a Jam Heavy Metal bluetooth speaker a few years back. Can't fault for the cash.

Also… where's the best place to shift a Supreme PCL deck nowadays that's not the Facebook groups or Ebay? Grailed and Depop seem pretty stagnant

I've got an Audio pro addon c3, sound quality is really good for a little thing, battery life is excellent and its built like a tank, I paid about 160 for it.

Bought a Panasonic TX-50EX700B last year for £400 and been very happy with it. Seems like it's been discontinued now but it'll have been replaced by something with a similar spec.

Lots of advice in the TV thread.
