We’ve all been there. You ask the audience a question and… nothing. No head nods, no questions, no response at all. It can be unnerving when you’re the one at the front of the room.
The solution? Invite them to play early and often.
When you kick off your meeting, presentation, or training, share your expectations with the audience.
It can be as simple as saying “This will be interactive.”
Then do something that proves it right away.
Ask a question
Have them work in small teams or using a flip chart
Get them to solve a riddle or guess the answer
When you invite an audience to interact, they will. Make it easy for them and thank them after they play.
