Your 20-minute speaking slot | 3 interaction moments

You are a speaker. Often invited to share expert views. Over time you developed a presentation style that fits like your favorite jacket. Yet, how to answer that voice that keeps challenging you to improve your story? For all these 20-minutes speaking slot invitations; here’s three tips on how Sendsteps could charge your message. With concrete audience interaction. By the minute;

Minute 01/20 | Opening multiple choice question | Building rapport
Allow a short moment of reflection on your theme. Throw in a statement [agree/disagree] in which the word “I” is formulated. Attendees can briefly discuss their answer with their neighbor.

“I consider sustainability to be a stronger responsibility for companies, than for myself”

Use the vote results on the screen, as an introduction to your own story. Your attendees are now checked-in on your theme. Time to take them on your journey.

Minute 10/20: Middle open question | Foster the attention span
Allow attendees to send in questions from the very first minute. Halfway through your presentation, you present the Sendsteps slide with an open ended question titled “Your question to Mary Johnson?”. Either handpick three questions from the message filter on the spot [via your smartphone or tablet] and assign them nonchalantly to your presentation screen. Oofff, you’re so cool! Or simply let questions pass by automatically and pick a few to reflect on. Sense the vibe within your crowd when they hear you answering their questions. Indeed, on the edge of their seat!

Minute 18/20: Final wordcloud | Underline your message
A wordcloud is a playful way of ending your story. Keep it light and ask your attendees to formulate just one word in which they capture their feeling of today’s story.

“In one word: What sticks with you most after today’s presentation?”

Leave the image of the wordcloud on the screen as you leave the stage. The wordcloud speaks for itself. Your story and their reflections. Congratulations – you just left a lasting impression!

Ok – roll up your sleeves now. Here are a few short tutorial videos to get you going with the above. Signup for your free account and simply try this experiment during your next presentation!
