Hi Toss

You might consider using (or modifying) one of those real-time digital audience feedback systems. You might even considering giving a handset to every audience member and setting the speaker cut-off point at a proportion/percentage of the audience. I believe there are a couple of companies which supply such systems - Keepad and IML come to mind. 

It wouldn't be hard to direct the signal to the speakers podium, or the MC's/moderator's.

There are some venues that already have these systems fitted (I know RIAus does, because I'll using it when I perform 'Dante's Laboratory' there in March).
