Length and panel size. The ideal length for a panel discussion is 45 minutes to one hour. The ideal number of participants is , plus moderator. I tend to book. A panel discussion, or simply a panel, involves a group of people gathered to discuss a topic in front of an audience, typically at scientific, business, or academic. We can't think of any other session format that would be more fitting for active audience involvement than a panel discussion. Unfortunately, the.
This means there is minimal risk of overwhelming the ViewPoint Panel members with too many survey invitations. The maximum amount of time our panelists are willing to spend completing a survey varies, with nearly a third of respondents willing to spend between 3 and 15 minutes or more per survey. Industry standards point to shorter being better when it comes to survey length. However, our panel members have indicated a willingness to take longer than average surveys. Although they may be willing to participate, there is always a concern regarding burn-out with lengthier surveys, so we will still err on the side of caution with this one and avoid long surveys where possible.
This shows that our panel members are slightly more willing to respond to a survey with a chance to win a raffle for a larger honorarium, although offering multiple smaller incentives is still a good option. The benefit of offering multiple smaller prizes is that it leaves a positive participation experience on more individuals. The use of Redbox codes is an affordable option which has allowed companies to reward many respondents for their participation. However, there is only value in rewarding many participants if it is an incentive that they feel is appropriate for the task.
This finding tells us that for most of our research, offering Redbox codes is not the optimal choice, but cash or Amazon gift card incentives are viable options. Although Amazon gift cards hold value for our panelists, cash should be offered when possible, as it resonates with the majority.
The members of our panel are real consumers, like you, instead of professional survey takers that can be found in larger research panels. Through our rigorous recruitment and quality assurance processes, we are able to ensure a higher level of quality for the data that result from surveys taken by our panel.

Putting the moderator in this photo, me in the middle sends the subtle message that he is going to guide the conversation and also makes it easier for him to redirect panelists if they drift off-topic.
Everyone has a comfy chair, and a lapel microphone. But a few of the items on the table are items that Marina Hatsopoulos the speaker in the red jacket brought for show-and-tell - far better than slides. Panelists are more comfortable when they have a sense of what topics you'll be discussing during the session, and a few of the questions you may ask.
But it is possible for panelists and moderators to overprepare, sapping the spontaneity. If at all possible, ask your panelists to leave the slides at home. Nice stage set-up, with coffee tables and comfy chairs for panelists though there may be too many of them. But the chairs are set in a straight line, rather than a slight semi-circle, which makes it tough for a panelist on one end to make eye contact with the person on the other end.
When everyone has a microphone, no one has to worry about when they'll get an opportunity to chime in. Can't you just hear the audience snoring softly? Slides force you to lower the level of light in the room, which makes it tougher to see the speaker Nice big name-tents in front of each speaker. And each person has his own individual table, though they look so spindly that I suspect the slightest nudge with a knee would knock one over.
Chairs are arranged in a slight semi-circle, so the panelists can all see each other. The low tables give them a place to put a glass of water or some notes. There are paper name-tents in front of each speaker. And the lighting in the room is plenty bright. With no one sitting in the first two rows of the ballroom, there's a giant gulf between the panelists and the audience.
The result is usually a low energy level in the room. Good lighting, but the moderator looks like she is stranded on her own desert island, at left.
