MT02: Harnessing Audience Insight
IML Event Technology
The real value for the key stakeholders of any meeting, training seminar or event is the discussion, content and actions that are generated by the participants. Through collaboration, the intellectual capital in the room has the ability to drive change, create insight and facilitate more infomed business decisions.
To achive this and to maximize the effectiveness and ROI of these events, it is essential to create an environment that actively promotes audience interaction by taking advantage of strategic yet simple-to-use technology solutions that help capture and make sense of all of the rich content that is created. That is how IML can help with its wireless handheld response and microphone device and associated software. We call it Harnessing Audience Insight.
