Why experiential speaking?

Attention spans are dropping. Audience members expect to be included. Clients increasingly request interaction. As a speaker, trainer or presenter who can truly engage your audience, you'll get better results, better feedback and more bookings.


Creative getting-to-know-you exercises to warm up your audience and reinforce your learning outcome.


Activities that create a buzz in the room, enliven your event, and make a memorable point.


Games you can use as part of a speech or training session – because playing is fun and aids memory.
