iPad rental for interactive meetings.
Dialogue is not always key to people listening; words can sometimes go in one ear and out of the other! It is important that you find new and fresh ways to engage your attendees to ensure they get the most out of your meetings and conferences. Being interactive is one of the most common ways to increase engagement. Here are the main rules for engagement:
1. Without focus and objectives at your meeting, it is likely that the meeting will run off track, so set a goal and then review at the end to see if you think your goals have been achieved.
2. Design your meeting so that it changes up at each stage.
3. Give the element of surprise at your meetings, it will encourage attendees to participate and keep them on their toes.
4. Create an environment where everyone can speak their mind and ask any questions, no matter how simple. Your attendees should feel comfortable asking questions.
5. Involve every aspect of a topic.
6. Be realistic with timings and discussions
7. Communication between attendees is the key to equality at your meeting.
8. Make sure it is clear to attendees what the goal of the meeting is and what you expect from the outcome, as well as how the results will be utilised.
9. Schedule some time for you to speak to attendees about you or hold a Q&A
10. Draw a clear line under what is open for discussion and what isn’t.
11. Make sure your meeting is spaced out with interaction being the main factor in all stages of the day. Try not to bore them with 5 speeches in a row because this is likely to de-motivate.
12. If a conversation detour has added value to your meeting, don’t be afraid to change it up a little bit.
13. If an attendee makes a suggestion you don’t find relevant to your meeting, you could refer them to someone else or provide an alternative to their idea.
14. Encourage participants to voice their opinions and ideas, not just sit back and let the questions build up in their heads.
15. Have your speakers’ change their ways a little by shortening their speech time to encourage more questions from attendees.
One of the main routes to success about being interactive at a meeting is not to hold back. Try something new and it is likely it will go down a treat and everyone will end up feeling the benefits from your meeting.
