MGTC36 Speaking Your Way To The Top Chapter 14
Chapter 14: Getting Your Audience Involved
o The audience prefer not to sit and be lectured to and they want to be involved
o What a presenter can do to involve their audience:
- Ask the audience questions
These can be real or rhetorical and its OK for you to answer them yourself
- Get the audience to react or respond
Easiest way to do this is to ask a question and request a show of hands
- Tell the audience a story
When listeners hear a well-told story, they may relate it to something in their
lives
- Use interactive activities
Method can work even with large audiences and it makes the audience feel
more a part of your presentation than if it is just sitting and listening
HJ´7XUQWR\RXUQHLJKERXUDQGVKDNHKDQGV´
- Have the audience participate in your presentation
Can involve audience members by having them play games that make your
point, do puzzles, play roles, or even demonstrate handshakes
- Use visual aids
When your visual aid is being displayed, ask the audience a question or give
them time to reflect on something you said
- Have the audience fill in the blanks
Can ask audience to fill in the blanks of what they think the answer is then
reveal the real answer
- Form small groups
Method only works if the space and the time allows for it
Break the audience into small groups and have them work together on a brief
activity

speaking directly to them
- Move closer to the audience
Make listeners feel more involved by getting out behind the podium/off stage
and walk among the audience

- An unexpected disturbance in the room, or just outside
The extent of the distraction to the audience depends on how long the
disturbance lasts and how you handle it (e.g. a baby crying, announce that the
parents can leave and return afterwards)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
