Make sure every voice is heard

Powerpoint presentations are often static and a one-way dialogue. However, what makes a great presentation is the inclusivity of the audience, the collaboration and the diverse voices that can be heard. The presenter shouldn’t be the only one to have their say, the audience should too! You can use Mentimeter before a presentation to collect information, afterwards to get feedback and of course during the presentation to engage the participants. When other voices are heard you get a more varied and well-informed presentation and our interactive slides help with exactly that. To make sure every voice is heard and to engage your audience. Don’t forget, enabling Q&A throughout your presentation helps to connect with your audience and clear up any questions they may have.
