One of the reasons why I like presenting online more than presenting in even the best-equipped halls is the text chat that participants can use to share what they think. I love it. I think it’s incredible how, through talks, I can provide a space for people to come together and discuss something they’re interested in, and I can listen to what’s important to them and what they’ve learned.
The value I bring to a presentation:
- a key message
- next actions
- a short, energetic, engaging presentation
- other stories and insights as they come up during Q&A
The value I receive from a presentation:
- new insights from the conversations
- new connections
- the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes from sharing
It’s a lot of fun. I hope I can help more presenters get the hang of the backchannel!
