Video: Conference speaker - audience interaction - Patrick Dixon

Conference speakers need audience interaction. Engaging with audience with participation, questions, straw polls, discussion, walking into the audience, using volunteers - all important. Audience experience, performance and theatre rather than a lecture or cold presentation of ideas. All great keynote speakers know how to connect with an audience, how to build rapport, relationship, chemistry, emotional bond. Humour, funny stories about real life business issues. Entertaining and motivational conference keynote speakers all know how to connect with passion, provocative, thought-provoking.
