On-Stage Interviews

On-Stage Interviews are exciting alternatives to formal, one-way presentations by technical experts, senior executives and other special guests


  • Formal presentations can be boring, as in “death by PowerPoint”
  • Audiences yearn for variety in their programs, not just in content but also in format
  • People get more than information with On-Stage Interviews, they get insight

You Need On-Stage Interviews When

  • Your audience has heard from this person before and doesn’t want to hear the same old same old
  • Your technical expert is not an expert presenter but their message still needs to get across in a meaningful way
  • You want to increase the energy and engagement of your audience by spicing up your conference with a different format
  • You want your leaders to have a memorable experience, not just an information dump

You Get

  • An initial consultation to determine the best use of the On-Stage Interview in your conference and where it might best be positioned
  • Preliminary interviews with the on-stage expert and a sample of the intended audience to make the questions relevant and interesting from their point of view
  • Expert interviewing that uncovers more about the subject than the expert might have otherwise conveyed and does so in an impactful way
  • The use of audience response and Social Media tools to tap into the questions and comments of the audience while the On-Stage Interview is happening

So That

  • Your audience has an unexpectedly memorable experience as well as the in-depth learning opportunity they deserve
  • Your expert, senior executive or other special guest looks great and gets their point across in a new and meaningful way
  • Your audience feels they’ve been given an insider’s view of the topic and take away meaningful insights to apply back on the job
