    2525For this reason we have a designated "Talk Jockey" for each presentation, whose explicit role is to ask questions about anything they don't understand. The jockey also tries to judge how well the audience is following the presentation, and can instruct the speaker to slow down, provide more examples, or try to re-explain something they feel the audience has missed. At venues without a jockey this process sometimes happens organically, as the audience will ask their own questions, but at FP-Syd we also ''designate'' a specific jockey to ensure it does happen. Research working groups such as [http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/ralf.hinze/WG2.8/ WG2.8] use a similar model.

    27 The jockey also has a equally important dual role: they can instruct the speaker to speed up, or to skip over material they feel the audience already understands. FP-Syd talks have no fixed length, but they can't run forever. Having a jockey helps to guide the presentation and ensures that we make good use of the available time.
