It’s exactly one year ago that the ‘Education of the Heart Symposium’ took place at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. The symposium was centered around innovative education in which the focus is placed on stimulating the heart and talents of children versus the mind or intellect.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama was present to share his view on educating the heart. The Sendsteps Sidekick helped over 500 education professionals ask their questions. They ranged from how to motivate children to live from the heart, to whether he ever makes selfies.
Having such a high-profile speaker at your event can make people nervous when it comes to asking questions. This is where the Sidekick comes in. Sendsteps doesn’t only make audience interaction easy by facilitating (anonymous) reactions and questions. But the Sidekick also scans incoming questions on the spot, filters them, and selects which ones are most appropriate. Whether critical comments relevant to the topic, controversial questions to spice things up or mind-expanding insights for both speaker and audience; the Sidekick is always neutral and knows to make the right call.
Got any events with high-profiled speakers planned? Politicians, CEO’s or celebrities? The Sidekick might just make the difference in offering your audience a voice to ask their questions.
