JoinSpeaker Gives You Control
Posted by Ron Springer | 7/5/12
These days there are many technologies available for discussions at conferences. There are a lot of ways to do it: a moderator off stage monitoring a Twitter feed for questions or the old school way of walking around the room with a mike. But these ways don’t give the speaker any control. The person behind the podium has to rely upon other people, devices, and tools they aren’t working with to make sure the last part of their presentation goes well. It also means that you’re introducing plenty of opportunities to slow down the momentum of your presentation. We all know that when the momentum slows, you can lose the audience’s attention.
JoinSpeaker is easy to use. Audience members are given a unique URL for your presentation that they can access from their smartphones. There, they can ask questions, share ideas, or comments. They can also answer polls provided by the presenter.
JoinSpeaker lets the speaker moderate, and really who would be a better moderator than the person who gave the presentation? The speaker can then direct the flow of the Q&A session. When the speaker is also the moderator, you can get an instant impression from the questions being asked, determining whether the main point of the presentation was made clear. If, perhaps, you have missed something, you now have an opportunity to clarify any misunderstandings which may not be addressed if someone else is moderating and feeding the speaker the question.
And what’s in it for event planners? They have the opportunity to place logos and URLs on the mobile site for your audience to see as they participate in this interactive portion of the presentation.
