In this conversation, Dan talks about the Presentation Summit, being held in San Antonio, TX this year from October 6 to 9, 2019.
Geetesh: Dan, can you tell us more about Fasetto? Also, what brings you to the Presentation Summit in San Antonio?
Dan: Fasetto, Inc. creates technology solutions for an increasingly connected world. We believe in seamless connectivity between people, their content and the devices they use; regardless of platform, device or network.
Our presentation product, Forum, was created specifically for in-person meetings for groups ranging from 3 to 300! Forum makes it possible to present directly to anyone’s phone, tablet or laptop – the devices your audiences already have – to share presentations and receive participant input anywhere without cables, dongles or even the internet. You can turn any space into a meeting room, whether it’s an open office, huddle space, cafeteria, outdoor patio – anywhere business takes you. Few companies have space for all-hands meetings, and fewer have spaces with IMAG screens and projectors. With Forum, the audience just uses their own device to get a front row seat to the presentation.
We are attending the Presentation Summit to get Forum into the hands of our audience and build relationships within the presentation industry. We want everyone to experience how Forum can improve the dynamic when presenting in person and how it can help attendees engage their audiences in some new, powerful ways.
Geetesh: Can you share some usage scenarios or success stories related to your Forum product?
Dan: Whether it’s a keynote, company meeting or training session, we all agree the most memorable and engaging presentations are when presenters and audiences interact and collaborate around the subject being presented. Many times, though, audiences are left in a passive role, just listening to the presenter, but this can lead to a disengaged meeting and the content (or presenter) can be quickly forgotten.
We know great presenters want to hear from their audiences but without interrupting their flow. And at the same time, audiences want to connect with presenters, yet are afraid of interrupting the speaker. Forum helps you make a strong audience connection every time you present.
Forum works great anywhere people gather to share ideas and want to engage their audience, whether it’s in transit, in huddle spaces in open offices or even outdoors or on a sales call. You can present directly to people’s devices and engage them through the key features of the software like audience polling, Q&A, screen sharing and more.
Here’s a little bit more about Forum in this video.
