Spark Arena rig for nine University Of Auckland graduations, 2024

Spark Arena rig for nine University Of Auckland graduations, 2024

      • University of Auckland Graduation Ceremonies 2023-24 – University of Auckland

    “Thank you so much for your Impeccable services over graduation at the University of Auckland. The difference it has made to the efficiency of our ceremonies is really noticeable. We no longer spend time passing notes about missing students during the ceremony – which relates to a much smoother appearance for attendees. Importantly, now that people reading the names are looking up, the name comes out much clearer – and as it’s such an important part of the ceremony this has made a really positive impact. It’s much more of an announcement now rather than a reading.
    Your ability to soothe anxious nerves was also very welcome – the majority of our readers had never used an auto-cue previously so it was great to see how confident they started to become”

“Personally, I find that Prompt Service autocue ensures that nothing is left to chance when I give presentations. It gives me the confidence to speak professionally with passion, engage the audience throughout and know I will get it right every time. No more referring to notes or ad-libbing, just constant eye contact with the audience which has provided me with great feedback, further reinforcing why I would not leave home without it!
Get Prompt Service technology, get Steve, become truly professional in your presentations.”
