Do you ever wonder why certain speakers and trainers engage the audience immediately?
Do you want to learn how to engage your audience?
Welcome to my video series: Secrets from a trainer to engage your audience. This is video #5: Danger: Make sure your 1st words are not boring. You will find 4 tips to help you engage your audience below. Please let me know which tip “speaks” to you.
How to engage your audience Tip #1
Don’t – I repeat don’t say anything boring when you begin your program such as:
- I’m thrilled to be speaking to you today.
- Thanks for being here.
Everyone says comments like these and the audience could tune you out immediately and start looking at their phones.
You can definitely thank the audience for being so engaged, just not at the beginning.
How to engage your audience tip #2
Start off with a great quote or funny experience that you had while driving or flying to the program. Your own personal stories are great to use.
How to engage your audience tip #3
Give kudos to the audience or to your introducer later on in your program.
How to engage your audience tip #4
- Start paying attention to your favorite news anchors
- Watch how they set up their segment
- Listen to other trainers and speakers
- Take notes on what works and doesn’t work
