How confident is your speaker/ presenter when going on stage ?

  1. 1. HOW CONFIDENT IS YOUR SPEAKER WHEN GOING ON STAGE ? “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” These are the words of Sir Arthur C. Clarke and how true they are for the speakers that will address the delegates and attendees at your conference. However, once they walk on stage, your speakers are out on the edge and have to rely on that “sufficiently advanced technology”. If that technology proves not to be advanced enough it is not only embarrassing for you as the host and organiser but it is also harmful for the reputation of the speaker and your own organisation. And as if that is not enough, the value of your congress becomes compromised. How often have you heard the words “next slide please” because something as simple as a wireless remote clicker/cue light was not “sufficiently advanced”. I will leave it at this example since I know you surely have your own experiences of “insufficiently advanced technology”. When MiceMedia BV is doing speaker management (often combined with stage management and show calling) we not only make sure that the technology is advanced enough but we give the speakers the confidence that they can perform at their best without any limitation from technology. We facilitate them, giving them the full opportunity to focus on the message that they want to deliver. While your speaker is on stage, MiceMedia is at work backstage, focussing the attention of all technicians and utilising the technology on a spotless performance that is indistinguishable from magic.
