Simon St. Germain, Klik - XLIVE Interview Series | 2019 XLIVE Esports Summit

Watch XLIVE's interview with Simon St Germain of Klik, live from the rooftop of the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles from the 2019 XLIVE Esports Summit! Klik is an event engagement platform connected to a smart wearable device as seen in the interview.

Welcome back to the rooftop of the Ace Hotel here at the XLIVE Esports Summit Opening Reception. I'm joined by a good friend of mine, Simon St. Germain. Welcome. Simon, you're here with Klik, Klik is the badge provider tonight and for the event, tell us a little bit about yourself, a bit about Klik, and the capabilities that attendees and other people who are wanting to use the technology, have.

I'm the marketing director of the company. So I oversee all the brands, the partnerships, and that's what brings me here. So we are a smart wearable company, we provide smart wearables for events, which allow you to track people around, to do virtual contact exchange, and more. And that's why we're here! We're extremely happy to partner up with XLIVE, and I'm mostly excited to see what's coming up in the next few days.

So these badges are a little bit bigger and beefier than a normal conference badge. Tell us a little bit about them. What's so special? Why are they so big?

So basically there's a Bluetooth enabled smart wearable in it, and the way that it works, it's super easy. You bring two wearables next to each other, you click (klik) them, and Boom! Contact exchanged. You don't need to bring your business cards, you just have to exchange contacts and be in the moment! When you go to an event, you have to be in a moment. You have to be where you're at, and do what you're doing, what you're learning, and be with the people you're meeting with. Don't be on your phone. Don't be that douche bag that's just on his Instagram or whatever! Be there. Be with the person you're meeting, use verbal communication and that's it. Afterwards, after the event, then go get your information online.

It has a few more functionalities, for example you can ask questions to the panelists, you can answer polls and that kind of stuff. And so we're really excited to be partnering with you and Klik. For those that want to learn more about Klik or about yourself, where can they find you?


Awesome. Thank you Simon. We're glad you're here and for everything XLIVE, you can follow us, subscribe, hit the like button, all that jazz and we will catch you on the next one.
