Do You Need Attendees to Answer Questions Honestly?
October 22, 2015
So how do you get much needed feedback from your presentations without generating long discussions? In business today, there seems to be a growing need for an efficient flow of two-way of communication at meetings and presentations and many companies are turning to audience response systems for the answer. There's no doubt that it is great to deliver a presentation and then have an open floor discussion of ideas, but often the time required for lengthy collaboration is simply not there.
Audience response systems are easy to setup and just as easy to operate. The hardware basically consists of a central receiver and individual key pads for each member of the audience that is being polled. ProLingo's wireless technology makes it easy to use in any environment from the board room to the classroom. Whether you are working with a small group of employees or having a much larger meeting of the minds, your attendees will feel less intimidated and more comfortable in telling you what they think when the process is anonymous.
There are numerous reasons as to why those attending a meeting may be reluctant to answer honestly. After all, disagreeing with higher ups or even going against the grain of the group's opinion can be quite intimidating. Fact is, management often discourages dissenting opinions even though they contend communication within their environment is open and honest. Installing an audience response system will ensure attendees give honest answers when asked about important issues rather than choose to take sides or not make waves.
In summary, audience response systems not only keep meetings or presentations on track but provide an important vehicle for collecting non-biased responses to important questions. To learn more about gathering and evaluating anonymous responses in real time, contact the experts at ProLingo.
