PowerPoint ‘Kill Switch’ Shuts Down Poor Presentations

Audience polling system provider ParticiPoll.com has launched a new ‘Kill Switch’ which allows audience members to instantly suspend poor PowerPoint presentations by majority vote.

(Strictly embargoed until after midnight, 31st March 2016)

The Kill Switch will be rolled out in April as an additional feature to ParticiPoll’s existing audience voting system, popular with healthcare, life sciences, educational and corporate users.

Head of Marketing at ParticiPoll, April Bouffon said “ParticiPoll is already a great way of obtaining live feedback from audiences but we realised the potential to take it one stage further and let them totally shut down the application if the presenter wasn’t up to scratch”
