Microsoft, Prezi and Evernote agrees; interaction is the future of meetings!
Everybody has an opinion and wants to be part of the ongoing conversation.
To be included and listened to is a basic need and drives learning, efficiency and fun.
It’s a core human desire; to be engaged.
One area has just begun this transition; analogue interactions such as meetings and presentations.
Large industry leading companies and startups are taking positions in this area at the moment. Let me bring up a couple of examples:
Microsoft — Introduced it’s Office Mix during the beginning of 2014 making Office Powerpoint somewhat interactive
Evernote — Introduced Presentation Mode in mid-2014 with Phil Libin saying “It’s not about presenting in front of 1000 people, it’s about the conversation”
Prezi — Whom just announced a $57M investment has always stated “create more engaging presentations” as their tagline.
What does Mentimeter believe in?
We do things a bit different since we are 100% focused on interaction and stand in the intersection of business, tech and consulting. With over 2 million users we have some backing when we state:
- Usage at conferences and in education are small stepping-stones to the great revolution that will happen in every-day business meetings.
- True valuable interactions in meetings comes from facilitated and clearly stated questions that are answered and discussed in real-time.
- Usage must be as easy as tweeting or raising your hand if every-day adoption should happen.
