ROBERT DAVERSCHOT

Chairman. Moderator. Sidekick.

On stage Robert interviewed ministers, subject experts and captains of industry. He even interviewed His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Yet he always involves the audience. Robert’s belief of “an event being as good as its audience”, always makes him find ways to engage with the attendees. To hear their experience. Their perspective.

SENDSTEPS

Sendsteps is a solution for audience interaction whereby attendees use their smartphone to respond. As such they can vote on polls, but they can also send in open comments, like questions to the speaker. Sendsteps is a PowerPoint add-in, meaning that audience feedback can be presented straight to the audience via the PowerPoint slide!
