Keep Your Audience's Attention Glued on You
Today's savvy audiences won't stand (or sit) for being talked at, they want to be part of your presentation. Learn from top experts how to engage your audience with interactive activities that keep their eyes off their phones and on you. Whether you speak to audiences of 10 or 10,000, you'll walk away with techniques to make your audience part of the experience.
Whether you are presenting a keynote, facilitating classroom training, or delivering content virtually, you want to be remembered as an effective speaker. You will be more memorable when you incorporate engaging and interactive content. This doesn’t necessarily mean playing games or making the audience do random, crazy things that have no point. It does mean being intentional about incorporating interaction and doing it with the purpose of supporting the content.
The levels and types of interactions are as broad as the types of presentations you give. It’s important to distinguish what interactions are best for the type of presentation you’re giving.
You will discover:
- What’s different about engaging the audience during a keynote presentation vs. training/breakout session vs. webinar
- How to use visuals and props to engage the audience and create a memorable experience
- The ideal frequency for incorporating interaction
- Ideas for different types of interaction
- Techniques for involving participants in a virtual learning environment
This is an interactive workshop and you will walk away with actionable ideas that will elevate your presentations to a higher level.
