Conversations & input (C&I):

a unique way to radically improve your audience interaction

No technology, simple to implement, and free

That Q&A moment, at the end of a session, is when just a handful of participants get to ask the speaker a question: often an unsatisfactory one-to-one engagement with little relevance or interest and only the smallest form of interaction in which less than 1% of your audience is engaged.

Adopt C&I, is the next generation Q&A

C&I is an effective, engaging and simple approach to speaker sessions that will radically improve the degree of your audience interaction to 75% or even 100%!

C&I, is the next generation Q&A that breaks away from the traditional ‘listening-to-the-speaker-only’ format.

Discover how to optimise your audience engagement, enliven sessions, and take your meeting to a new level.
