INTERACTIVE GENERAL SESSIONS
The Power of Mass Collaboration
You can ensure total engagement during any meeting when you offer the audience an opportunity for positive input – sent via text messaging on their phones.
Imagine adding a participation layer to your general sessions and breakouts. All you need are some key concepts for consideration and to incorporate the wide screens and AV that’s already being used.
How it Works!
Identify a concept such as efficiency, operational ideas, cost-saving ideas, sales or promotion ideas or any concept that will elicit a good response. Show a short video or Power Point with key people discussing the subject, and then ask the audience to text their one-line responses to a designated number. We’ll then scroll selected answers on the screen and offer incentives and rewards for great responses. We can also solicit yes or no votes on fun popular subjects, just like American Idol. These interactive sessions can be offered during key times during the session.
