Transforming Your Communications Dennis Silverlock Managing Director Phoenix AV Solutions Ltd
Conferences / Speeches? How do you take away the complete conference? How do you capture the atmosphere? How do you record the impromptu but valid questions? How do you get out to those who were unable to attend?
Multi-Site Personnel Training? How do you quickly update your staff on important new issues? How do you allow your staff to refer back to training lessons and content? How do you communicate with all your staff across many locations?
Client Communications? How do you connect with your clientele? How do you inform them of new products, procedures, employees? How can you leave them with something they can refer to at will?
PowerPoint Presentations? “In 2005, 30 million PowerPoint Presentations were given every day.” - Microsoft, 2005 The entire presentation (info + message + speaker) should be the content – not just the slides. How is that content stored and here is it now? How do you refer back to that content? How can you access that content at any time?
All these ‘hows’ can be achieved… however, other ‘wants’ also have to be considered…
The presenters want: Do not interfere with or change the current presentation method Eliminate the necessity to be technical Eliminate preproduction, special production or post-production. Reduce or eliminate setup time, no complicated tools Flexibility to work with their preferred tools & content types Highest possible fidelity and qualify of visual, audio and text elements NO prep, NO extra work: “Get the technology out of my way”
The audience wants: High quality content that replicates the “full” presentation experience Legible documents, everything the presenter shows Easy navigation to specific points of interest in the presentation Ability to provide feedback and interact with the presenter Convenient access…on-demand and live From home, at the library, on the train, in the park, in the office… “Give me the live audience experience - everywhere!”
