Don’t Tell, Play with Them – How to Inject Games into your Presentation
- Injecting more fun and energy into your presentation
The last thing a speaker wants to see is a sea of bobbing and nodding heads, that are bobbing and nodding to fight off sleep. Learning requires energy and the more a speaker can engage all the different senses of the audience the more interesting the presentation will become and the more fans he or she will make.
Games are a great way to achieve this. A serious topic can still benefit from simplifying the content enough and creating games that allow your participant to learn and appreciate the topic experientially.
