Conferences, events and training days are usually intended to be two-way conversations. They're meant to be an opportunity to inform the audience of new products, legislation, best practice etc... but also to gather opinion which can sometimes it can be challenging part, getting attendees to speak up and get involved. We’ve found that using audience response systems including voting pads helps ease tension and increases interaction.
