    Fasetto’s new product makes for seamless meetings while engaging attendees.

When it comes to meeting and events, tech issues are universal. Fasetto, Inc., an innovative tech company, aims to change that with the November launch of their new gadget Forum. 

“Forum is a safety net,” Fasetto CEO Coy Christmas explains. “You can sleep in 15 minutes later because you will be confident that setting-up will go according to plan." Designed as an integrated presentation solution, Forum creates a wireless network for participants to join—allowing them to view presentations on their own device and interact with the presenter—independent of Wi-Fi connection or the challenges that come with presenting in unfamiliar spaces. 

“While Forum knocks down logistical presentation hurdles, it was ultimately designed to make engaging with the audience easier,” says Christmas. Presenters using Forum can conduct live polls, respond to questions, and share files and contact information with their audience, all in one convenient place. Fasetto also plans to work continuously to provide users with new Forum features that will be released through software updates. 

By the time the now-iconic photo of one Fyre Festivalgoer’s pitiful cheese sandwich had gone viral, social media platforms and news outlets were abuzz with shock and bewilderment—questioning how the seemingly star-studded island excursion could have resulted in half-built FEMA-issued tents, cancelled musical acts and stranded attendees.

 

What these leaders may not realize is that the old approach to meetings, where someone talks the team to sleep is quickly becoming unacceptable. Companies and planners everywhere are ditching their boring meetings and adopting more effective practices.
Two factors driving revolution throughout the modern workplace also demand a new way of meeting: digitalization and VUCA, short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
