Zeetings Changes One-Way Presentations Into Two-Way Conversations

Cloud-Based Platform Transforms Meetings and Presentations Into Interactive Experiences and Gives Hosts Instant Data on Audience's Thoughts

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2015) -  Zeetings [www.zeetings.com] today launched a free, cloud-hosted service that gives presenters the power to engage and collaborate with their audiences while gathering data-driven insights. Zeetings shifts the communication paradigm by transforming one-way presentations into powerful, dynamic, two-way conversations. Combining slides with videos, polls, questions, comments and Web content, every audience member is empowered to join the conversation from any device via one customizable URL without having to download any additional software or even create an account.

Participants can interact with the presenter by following the slides, voting in polls, posting questions and comments and connecting with everyone in the room. With Zeetings, every audience member can have their voice heard, increasing the impact of meetings and presentations, and creating online content communities that continue to exist after the event is over.

With Zeetings, presentations do not end once the slideshow is over. Zeetings keeps everyone connected and engaged in the conversation. The presentation's content, which can include PowerPoints, PDFs, videos and more, remains live in the cloud, allowing for edits and changes, as well as becoming a valuable resource audiences can re-visit. Presenters can maintain strict control over who has access to the content and make sure everyone has the most up-to-date version.

"Zeetings is stunningly simple. It turns dreary monologues into lively, informative dialogues," said Robert Kawalsky, co-founder and CEO of Zeetings. "Presentations are one of the top methods of communication. We've found a way to turn anyone into a better presenter, giving them the power to engage their community and create a collaborative environment -- a virtuous cycle, if you will."

Feedback can be completely anonymous so hosts get honest results. Zeetings tracks conversations, votes, likes and other metrics as they arise, resulting in data-driven insights so presenters know what's really going on. As well, Zeetings generates real-time analytics that are persistent and can be compared over time. Because Zeetings is in the cloud, it doesn't require any downloads or software configurations.

Zeetings has been beta-tested for 12 months. Its successful test runs have included over 50,000 people and companies as large as eBay, which used the revolutionary platform during its South by Southwest event in 2015, with one participant remarking, "Finally, a well-curated and well-managed panel talk with synchronous presentations. This is how all panels should be. Others could learn from this." Other large beta testers have included Ernst & Young, Hewlett-Packard and the X Prize Foundation.

In addition to Kawalsky, Zeeting's founding team includes Adam Schuck, the former head of Twitter's New York engineering team, Tony Surtees, former vice president of Yahoo's US commerce division, and Neill Miller, prominent Australian investor and entrepreneur.
