How to facilitate questions in f2f events digitally

Participants continuously associate questions, objections and ideas with the content they bring to thm. But only a few participants want to expose themselves to a hall microphone. Also, they usually get neither space nor time to speak up. 

By facilitating questions digitally, the focus of attention can be directed to a much larger number of participants. 

 

Teambits has two practical example to lay things out a bit:

 

1. In a recurring conference event under public law sponsorship, digital facilitaton was used to allow questions from more than 300 attendees and to present them in a timely manner to speakers and discussants of the panel through th facilitator. Participants used their own devices to ask questions.

 

2. In a process of change, top management decided to speak directly with 500 upper management executives. In this non-public event participants used completely anonymizd loaned devices and where able to communicate with the executive board.

 

Procedure

Participants ask their questions or write their comments

A faciliator then receeives all incoming questions and comments

Participants' contributions are picked up by the facilitator and can be switched to a big-screen projection
