Most conferences and some meetups offer a way to offer feedback on each individual talk, either through feedback platforms such as or through a custom feedback form. This feedback is vital for speakers (to improve their talks) and conference organizers (to aid in talk selections and evaluation) alike.

I notice that in general only ~5% of attendees leave feedback on conference talks though. I'd like to find out why most people don't (and maybe how to fix that). Please help out by answering the poll in the tweet below and/or by leaving a reply with your ideas to improve the feedback process.
