Interactive polls using Mentimeter were used throughout the meeting to gauge feedback and encourage active participation from the meeting attendees.
As it was the first meeting of the Open membership group, the meeting covered quite a lot of topics over a short amount of time. The use of PowerPoint slide presentations by most of the presenters was effective, and it also helped to have one of the sessions in an interview style to keep the session more engaging. Mentimeter polls in between presentations, to some extent allowed some of the participants to stay engaged during the meeting.
