Today presenters have to offer more than a useful and interesting presentation. Using new technologies, social media and other tools to enhance the experience is also important, in order to grasp the attention of their audience and cause them to engage in conversations.
There are many applications that allow the speaker to control the presentation from their phone or even using it as a laser pointer to highlight important points. Controlling the flow of the presentation is much easier, navigating back and forth and even live streaming the presentation directly to the audience’s devices.
Similarly, some applications allow sharing your slides on the audience’s devices so they can manually take notes on important slides, or circle or highlight key points on real time.
Real-time online voting systems are another way to create engagement and make your audience feel like they are part of the discussion. This can also eliminate the fear of speaking publicly, expressing an unpopular opinion or disagreeing with something being said. This can effectively create more discussions and making the audience’s opinion heard. A2V Lab can offer real-time voting systems services, that can be incorporated in every event, conference or presentation and you can take full advantage of its capabilities.
Social media listening tools are another way to increase engagement, listen to opinions and get feedback. Make sure that you engage early on social media using specific hashtags, and ask people to use them on their posts or tweets. This way you can keep track of them and at the end of the event use them to further engage, answer questions and listen to the audience’s feedback and comments on your presentation or event.
The success of a presentation is not only based on your content or your speaking skills. Make sure that you created a visually appealing presentation, using not just images but graphs, animations, videos, even GIF’s. Combining visuals such as video or animation with text is proven to improve passing on complex information and gaining attention more effectively.
