Good idea, big trick with this is to get the audience preloaded with the app well in advance of the event. Too many times I have seen the audience completely distracted from the speaker trying to install the app and the story gets lost and everyone distracted.
|What problem are you solving?||There are estimated to be 1.3 million meetings each year in the UK alone. Many of these are small so do not use technology beyond PowerPoint and a projector. Glisser is fundamentally changing the industry by offering an effective, powerful product at a price that makes it viable for ANY of these meetings – not just the largest 5% with the largest budgets. It takes existing content formats and simply makes them better – the content is shared more easily and the audience can participate easily.|
|What is your solution?||Glisser makes presentations interactive. It takes regular slide decks and pushes them out live to audience mobile devices, slide-by-slide, as they are presented. It then enables members of the audience to interact with the presenter or each other, through polls, live Q&A and Twitter. This improves engagement, aids learning and recall, and generates a huge amount of useful feedback and valuable data for presenters and event organisers. Attendees can also electronically mark-up the slides with notes, and send them to their email account for future reference.|
