Interactions Menu

14 surprisingly effective interactions
- and 3 small warnings!

When selecting and discussing the "right" interactions, it helps to know what works.

And what doesn't (you'll find that at the bottom of this page!).

IMPORTANT: All interactions can be done by the facilitator alone, you don't have to get a speaker "on board" (although this is usually welcome) and are still highly interactive.

1. For the event kick-off (or even beforehand)

Expectation enquiry (with a trick)

2. For speaker introductions (Brainopener)

An often underestimated technique in event interaction is asking questions BEFORE a content input (presentation, interview, etc.). However this is probably one of the most effective and exciting uses of interaction ever. Here are some ideas:

Estimation questions

Belonging-Questions (Group)

Belonging-Questions (Range)

Self-assessment ("hand on heart", anonymous!)

The "tailored" presentation

3. During/after presentations / Actions

Q&A / Questions from the audience

Competitions and awards

Ratings/Rankings (Careful)

Opinion questions (Careful)

Panal discussion

​4. Specials

Workshops / Sessions

Blue Ocean Strategy

"Feedback-sheet"

5. ATTENTION: enjoy with caution!

"Warm up"

"Maschine gun"

"Votings instead of WordClouds"

And how exactly does that work? And what is good for your event?

Thanks for the great tool!

We have used VOXR in different ways for our continuing education event. On the one hand, we asked questions about expectations, which were then reflected in the cloud typical of VOXR. On the other hand, we also used VOXR for moderated commenting on lectures. The audience accepted the tool very easily and gladly, and even missed it when we didn't use it once. Our speakers found VOXR an enrichment, as they were able to respond directly to the comments of the participants. We were impressed by the simplicity for the audience as well as by the closeness that resulted from the use of this feedback technique between the podium and the guests. - Thanks for the great tool!

Recommended for Breakouts and to counter Company politics.

We have used VOXR repeatedly for our quarterly top level management meeting, and love the speed by which it makes everyone's thoughts visible in a simple yet comprehensive way. We use VOXR for quick plenum opinion polls and brainstorming departmental topics and goals. We find that VOXR's anonymous approach makes it easy for people to open up and contribute to the process. Our department leaders value the ease of use as well as the interactive and involving nature of the tool, which often gives them concrete insights and ideas to build upon. We happily recommend it to anyone, who would like to involve their audiences, in a simple and effective manner.

500 questions collected in one minute

We used VOXR live in a global change process with 750 participants, of whom about 500 also entered questions. VOXR immediately clustered the topics live so that we could ask our experts directly about the most frequently requested topics. The anonymity of VOXR has also shown the frequency of questions that are really important, which actually has promoted the process. The simplicity of VOXR convinced us and has already led to inquiries from external and internal partners in our company. In any case, we will continue to work with it.

The cloud displays are particularly well received

The cloud displays, in which multiple answers are represented by a larger font size, are particularly well received. The software is easy to trade and the VOXR team offers fast support if you have any questions. We will certainly continue to use VOXR at one or two events in the future.

The response was outstanding.

In the control panel I looked at the raw data and selected the most important questions with a star. Our moderator / boss got the iPad from me with the moderation view when he went on stage after the presentation. He could then (almost) ask all the questions to the speakers. The response was outstanding.
