Studies suggest that every 15-20 minutes a listener’s mind wanders. In fact, 91 percent of business professionals admit to daydreaming during meetings and 39 percent confess to falling asleep, according to a “Meetings in America” study conducted by MCI.
Given these statistics, how can you be sure then that your audience is understanding your message and retaining the information you’ve worked so hard to deliver?
The meeting planning experts at Miller Tanner have a few proven ways guaranteed to make your presentation more engaging with the help of technology.
Go Bold (or go home) with an LED Screen
Your presentation is only as good as its display capabilities. So deliver it in a way that captures your audience using a dynamic LED screen.
You just can’t compare the clarity and vibrancy of an LED screen to a projector. The quality is unmatched.
What’s most impressive is that an LED screen has much greater versatility and resolution than your basic options. The presentation possibilities are virtually endless – from delivering highly-engaging video content to interactive Powerpoint and Prezi presentations displayed at scalable sizes. Visually-rich presentations boost engagement and knowledge retention. There’s no need for boring presentations ever again.
Use ARS to Interact with the Audience
Gone are the days of simply giving a speech. Your audience wants interaction. Use Audience Response System (ARS) to enhance your meeting’s engagement and launch your interaction. By using these small yet powerful devices, transform your presentation into a more interactive discussion. ARS offers real-time live discussions, instant feedback, and instant polling.
You can ask your audience questions in a wide variety of formats, such as multiple-choice, rating, text response, polling, voting and even fun game challenges, which are great for team building. These options add more exchange of thoughts and ideas within your presentation so you know that your message is getting through to your listener. Your audience will feel more involved and invested in the discussion and less likely to tune out your message.
