Ask yourself this before using the Ask feature

Q&A sessions are part of most scientific and medical conferences these days, and widely popular amongst attendees. And that for a good reason: They give them the rare opportunity to ask questions directly to an expert and interact with the presentation content.
Yet, blindly choosing one attendee out of a big crowd has its pitfalls. While you as the organizer and the presenter can spend weeks preparing for a presentation, the Q&A session is largely out of your control.

3 Easy Tricks to Engage your Audience during a Presentation

We’ve all sat through our share of boring presentations. It’s mind-numbing to be forced to listen to dry content that’s delivered (or worse, read) at us, rather than discussed with us. Often, all this talking is in vain anyway. Studies show 91% of listeners at business presentations admitted to daydreaming, and an impressive 39% to downright falling asleep at some point.

Speak Queasy?

Path-breaking research is at the heart of most great STEMM conferences, but even presentations with the most exciting discoveries will flatline if they don’t have speakers who know how to present them. On paper, speakers may appear peerless, sitting atop esteemed academic institutions or having garnered the most prestigious awards. But all those accolades will mean nothing should they speak with mouths of cotton and point to slides that are as indecipherable as Mayan hieroglyphics.
