We commonly have webinars where each speaker is allotted a certain amount of time to speak. Some speakers speak longer, but to keep them on time we need to have a way to signal them that they need to quickly finish up their speech, Other than using Chat, does anyone have any ideas on how to quickly get the attention of the speaker to have them sum up their comments?
Hey @ToddMaru1 – hate to say it, but most organizations I’ve worked with use the time-honored method of interrupting them and saying “excuse me, sir, you’ve got 2 minutes left”.
Another trick I’ve seen, assuming they are watching their own gallery view with only a few panelists, is to have a countdown clock running in one of the host’s windows (fed from OBS, vMix, etc.) with a color coded background – starting with green, turning to yellow at the 5 minute mark, and to read at the 1 or 2 minute mark.
At every event I have a moderator from the client organization who really is emcee of the show, and I train them briefly in time control – telling them it’s their job to keep things moving.
With larger, more technical events, an in-ear monitor is sometimes used – like Unity Intercom – and the Technical Director can whisper in, “3 minutes to go.”
