Free book for first 60 people to register on Friday!

Here’s an incentive for showing up early to get your name tag and tote on Friday morning! Registration opens at 8am.

ReadTheRoom-coverThis weekend’s NCDD conference coincides with the publication of a new book called Read the Room For Real: How a Simple Technology Creates Better Meetings. The book is intended for facilitators, presenters, conference planners, or anyone who is curious about how to use increasingly accessible audience polling technology to improve meetings.

We are happy to provide preview copies of the book – which include a back cover endorsement from Sandy for which we are very grateful – as a gift to the first 60 people who register for the conference.

Our book is one of the first that we know of focused on the use of audience polling technology outside of the classroom environment. We have a deep background in facilitating dialogues about difficult diversity issues and as well as refining dialogic processes on all matter of topics for very small to very large groups of people. In our view, polling technology is severely under-appreciated by not just the dialogue community, but also by city planners, public officials, diversity professionals, and many others. Our goal is to accelerate the time when audience polling technology is as commonplace a meeting tool as Powerpoint.

We are organizing a campaign to make this dialogue book an Amazon bestseller on its launch day, November 28 (Black Friday). All conference attendees will have information in their packet about how to participate in the campaign, how to get a discount on the book, and how to enter a drawing to get a full day of pro-bono in-person consulting on audience polling.

For those not coming to the conference but who are interested in learning more about the book, contact us at david@read-the-room.com.
