Overall Satisfaction with MaestroConference

I used Maestro Conference to lead group coaching programs and host interactive telesummits. The number one business problem it addresses is how to make large group calls more dynamic, engaging and interactive. By using Maestro Conference participants in the calls are able to connect with each other and actively connect in group exercises.
  • The number one strength of Maestro Conference is the ability for the host to create "break out" groups where members of the call can interact with each other in smaller groups as if they were in an in-person conference.
  • Another quality of Maestro Conference that I love is the fact that the host can then "weave in and out" of the different break out groups, listening in, providing support and getting feedback. It's an incredibly tool that Maestro offers.
  • Lastly I think Maestro Conference has excellent customer service.
  • The only challenge I found with Maestro conference is that sometimes the break out groups function didn't operate as smoothly as I needed it to. People wouldn't always find themselves in groups or they would be switched from one group to another without the host moving them.
  • The biggest positive impact I had with Maestro Conference was the ability for participants to engage with one another.
  • This made my group coaching calls much more engaging. Participants were able to talk with each other and be more actively involved in the calls.
  • Participants formed deeper relationships with one another because they could connect through smaller groups.

Maestro Conference is the only service I know that allows you to create break out groups and allow participants to actively engage with each other and with the host. It is the most like an "in-person" event of any service I have used. And the customer service has always been excellent.
If I go back to having calls where I want to have break out groups then I would definitely consider using Maestro conference again. For now this is not a service I need so I have not renewed with Maestro.
Key questions to ask might be:
1) Do I want to create a more "in-person" experience for my participants?
2) Do I want participants to be able to connect in smaller groups?
3) Will I be leading exercises that I want participants to actively engage in?
4) Would it be helpful for participants to be able to talk amongst themselves at any point during my presentation?
5) Do I want to be able to listen in on what participants share in the smaller groups?
