Connecting with the audience

Published by Jackie Barrie on

I spoke to Lisa Braithwaite (also known as Coach Lisa B) about how to connect with the audience, whether in-person or at remote and hybrid events.

Like me, she stresses that you should adapt any ideas to suit your own purpose. She has a course on creating your own exercises and activities as an alternative to using the same ones that speakers have been using for years.

Among other things, we discussed:

  • Asking questions, including the sliding scale activity
  • Why relevance is key
  • The importance of debriefing
  • Using role play, toys, packages, props and prizes for analogies and metaphors
  • Winning over teenagers
