What is a Q&A question type?

Q&A means Question & Answer, this means that there will be a period of time where the presenter answers the question the audience has. How you can use this in your Sendsteps is by preparing a back-up question. Right beforehand what question u think the people will ask and how they would respond to your answer. By this method you already have an answer ready for the most common question. Of course there will be some questions you can’t predict beforehand. The question type is a very important asset to your presentation as it gives the audience the feeling that they are included in your presentation. By being included they feel like they are listened too. Also the Q&A helps you to find out if the crowd understands everything or if they have more need for information about certain topics.
