Book Description: Audience involvement is the goal of every speaker, even if that involvement is simply active listening. The speaker's choice of ideas and supporting materials and the way those elements are delivered largely determine the audience's role. But contemporary audiences seek more participation. Visual aids, workbooks or handouts, and creative exercises are fast becoming the norm in public presentations. In these pages Karen Lawson offers practical, how-to approaches for keeping the glitches out of presentations and shows how to use interactive presentations to increase impact and ensure speaker success! Lawson provides proven techniques for connecting with audiences and actively encouraging them to participate.
