Here’s a story of how an impromptu presentation
That could have been interactive and engaging
Went horribly wrong.
We’ll share the story
Then come up with ideas
For making presentations more interactive
Both online and in person.
Let’s get started…
The bride is running late
So the wedding officiant
In an well-meaning attempt
To warm up the crowd
Launches into a five minute speech about
Her goal is a good one.
To share her excitement about the
Happy couple’s pending nuptials.
But the result is us
Checking our watches
Aggravated by the delay.
Because talking about being excited
Doesn’t get other people excited.
So how could she have better shared her excitement?
Instead of talking about herself,
She had suggested that we pick someone near us in the crowd
And ask them where they were from and how they know the couple.
In that case,
We all would have happily chatted away the ten minutes
While making new friends.
That’s an interactive and effective way to warm up a crowd.
But what does that look like online?
Because online, people can’t really see each other
Let alone talk to each other.
How can you encourage people to
Join the conversation…
Glad you asked.
Because I’ve been working on this very challenge
For several years.
I’ve been frustrated that my
Dynamic and interactive presentation style
Didn’t translate well online.
I am happy to report
That I have finally found an approach
That makes online presentations
Just as interactive as in person workshops.
I’m hosting a free webinar on Tuesday at 2pm ET.
You’ll experience 3 techniques you can use immediately
To engage any audience
So they’ll participate enthusiastically
Ask lots of questions
And enjoy the experience of learning online.
Registration is free and seating is limited.
