Collecting feedback with Mentimeter is simple and extremely effective. You can collect feedback live while presenting or you can collect it after the presentation session has finished. Participants can give feedback anonymously which enables them to give authentic responses without the fear of retribution. Feedback provides a valuable opportunity to improve performance, efficiency and productivity. As we say here at Mentimeter, feedback no matter good or constructive is a gift!

Using Mentimeter live to get feedback

Collecting feedback live during a presentation means that you get responses in real-time. It gives the presenter the opportunity to discuss the results with the audience allowing further explanations and elaborations. It is also a great way to ensure that you receive a much higher response rate from the audience.

How to create feedback:

  1. Create a feedback presentation

  2. Present slides or send out feedback

  3. Analyze the results

Collect feedback after a training session

Collect feedback whilst the participants’ thoughts are fresh in their mind. Improve the performance of the training session for next time by gaining their thoughts and ideas.

Collect feedback after an event

When presenting at a large event it can be hard to decipher how well it went and how worthwhile it was for the audience. Asking the audience for feedback enables the presenter to determine whether the audience’s needs have been met giving them invaluable insights for the next event.

Collect feedback after a conference

Conferences can be overwhelming and presenting in front of a crowd can be challenging for many. Therefore asking for feedback is a great way to hone your presenting skills and strive for continuous improvement. It is a great way to find out how you can boost your communication skills and take your next conference to the next level.

Not live, before or after the presentation or as a survey

If you want your participants to have more time to think about their feedback answers, or perhaps you’ve run out of time in the session to collect feedback, sending it out afterwards is the perfect option. Gain useful insights and analyze the results to improve.

What to do?

  1. Create your survey or quick form

  2. Send it out using the direct link

  3. Analyze the results

If you want to collect feedback after a session, you must remember that the presentation code expires after 4 hours so you need to email the participants the direct link to the presentation. The presentation must also be set to audience pace so the participants can go through and answer at their own pace.

Post seminar feedback

Send out a survey post-seminar to understand what the students thought of the session, subjects they want to cover again or any tips on how to improve for next time.

Post-training session feedback

Training sessions can require the participants full attention and be time-consuming. Sending a request for feedback after the training session may be more beneficial as participants will have more time to reflect on what they learnt and what was particularly useful.

Quick form (pro accounts)

To collect information such as email addresses about the participants before or after the session, quick forms allows you to find out a bit more info whilst saving paperwork, time and making your sessions for efficient.

Mentimeter makes giving and receiving feedback uncomplicated and effortless. Feedback can help to drive the performance of the organization and although not always easy, it is an important skill and exercise in order to foster a culture of continuous improvement.
