Evokation Clinic Live

Posted by Simon Brookes on 30 Apr under How to EVOKE, evokation

As we near the climax of this first thrilling season of EVOKE, many of you are turning your thoughts to potential EVOKATION project ideas. It is clear that while some agents are well advanced with their EVOKATION plans other agents may still be wondering what on earth the EVOKATIONs are all about.  There is some information on EVOKATIONS in this blog post but no doubt this will raise as many questions as it provides answers.

If I were submitting something as important as this I’d want to talk to someone directly about it.  So, this Sunday I want to offer all agents the opportunity to join some of the EVOKE team in a live, online chat to discuss all things related to EVOKATIONS.  I am calling this the EVOKATION CLINIC.


Sunday 2nd May

16:00-18:00 GMT – UK

This translates as:

08:00-10:00 PDT (GMT-8) – San Francisco

11:00-13:00 EDT (GMT-5) – Washington DC

18:00-20:00     (GMT+2) – Cape Town

00:00-02:00 (GMT+8) – Beijing


We are using an online chat client called Mibbit. Click this link here to join us: http://bit.ly/evokechat


It’s straight forward enough – you ask the questions and with any luck we will provide some answers. However, in order to keep a little structure to the proceedings I want to ask you to help us out a little. Could you please submit any questions you have beforehand, either below this post, or directly to me via my EVOKE email (http://www.urgentevoke.com/profile/SimonBrookes).

If this is a success we will hold another clinic next week particularly for those of you who, becuase of clashes with time zones, found it impossible to join us this week

Please pass this information on to other agents in your network and opefully we’ll see you there.

    It would be great if there was a non-live version of this discussion, so that people had more time to really get deep into conversation, and everyone could participate. Any chance that could be offered?

    Also, what sort of things are you intending to accomplish in this chat?

    What are you going to offer, and what do you want agents to offer?

    Yes we will set-up a discussion or you can start discussion on my blog post about this. A great idea. I just want people to have an opportunity to ask Evokation related questions should they have any.

    Yeah I must say when I read the EVOKATION page, the words “red tape” sprang to mind! I broke down possible answers into sections, but I’m happy to sit in on this meeting tomorrow for better clarification.

    I’m still making a physical object for Week 8 but will be completing as much of the written assignments as I can before I finish it, so that leaves whatever time is left to complete everything else to qualify for the final challenge.

    Sorry I missed this clinic, I look forward to catching up on it though- is it recorded somewhere?

    Also- does anyone know what the final deadline for the evokation is?

    Is it really May 12th?

    I am worried that i am not going to be able to complete my final two missions and the evokation in that time, as well as my full time job. Hmmm.

    Hi Bec, the Evokation deadline is May 19. If you need to prioritize, choose your Evokation over the Missions! – Calida
