Even professional presenters will tell you that it’s almost impossible to hold an audience’s attention for more than 30 minutes by just talking to them. Many presenters at conferences are not professional speakers and often delegates are not used to sitting still for hours listening to lectures.
It’s therefore imperative to create a conference programme that includes movement, discussion and a variety of media. This is held together by an expert conference host who can read and respond to the audience’s energy levels, ensuring you have a great day.
We can also coach your presenters so that they don’t come across as the ‘weakest link’. In the past we’ve used interviews, videos and quizzes in place of PowerPoint presentations to keep the audience engaged and to bring out the best in the presenter.
