It’s not easy to keep the names and affiliations of a large panel of speakers straight. Not only is this confusing to your local audience, it can prevent them from asking directed questions to specific members of your panel.
When Coreography webcasts an event, we place the current speakers name and title on the live video (called lower thirds). But unless we send our program feed to the main projector, this does not help the local audience.
So what can you do?
If its a group panel discussion seated behind a table, consider using name placards in front of each speaker’s microphone. This takes a little pre-planning to execute, but should eliminate your local audience’s confusion.
