When conducting live polling during a presentation, it is important to keep a couple of factors in mind. During the past few years we have tweaked several elements based on the type of presentation we were conducting. Below are three elements to keep in mind while planning your presentation.
Know your audience
This is an important factor, as you want to make sure the material you cover is both relevant and educational. If the audience knows everything in the presentation, they will quickly lose focus and glaze over the material presented. You may also lose points with your audience if you are in a professional meeting and have a lot of random animations, bells and whistles that do not flow with the rest of your presentation.
