Audience interaction specialist Slido is to host TEDxEastEnd founder, Maryam Pasha, at the second of its new event series, Slido.Interact.
Slido.Interact is now a bi-monthly event, initially in London, and uses Slido’s audience interaction platform to champion conversational presenting and encourage more audience-driven content.
The second event in the series, featuring Maryam Pasha, will take place on 30 May at The Brewery in London.
Adopting a ‘fireside chat’ format, Maryam will share her thoughts, personal experiences and exceptional story in an open dialogue driven by the audience.
The first Slido.Interact event was held last month at the London & Partners’ offices near Tower Bridge and drew 30 event professionals who came to hear Ruth Mortimer, director of Centaur Media’s Festival of Marketing and Marketing Week Live.
Abi Cannons, Slido community manager, comments: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Maryam to our second Slido.Interact event. Maryam’s philosophy is to create experiences that go far beyond the traditional speaker-audience interaction. She has built TEDxEastEnd into a whole-day immersive event for over 1,000 people and the talks from TEDxEastEnd have been viewed online over two million times.”
Peter Komornik, Slido CEO, adds: “We’ve witnessed time and again that when a great guest is partnered with a great facilitator that 1+1 = 3. When the audience is also invited into that equation, the result is magnified further. It ensures that everybody gets what they need, and more, from both the event and the guests themselves. We believe that the future of presentations includes much more conversational presenting and look forward to helping event organisers successfully include this approach in their events.”
