Public Speaking Skills:
Dueling Flip Charts
Here is a very unique way to use flip charts when exercising your public
speaking skills. Put one on both sides of the stage and pop back
and forth between the two of them. You can have an audience member volunteer
at each flip chart helping you record input from other audience members.
This has a tremendous "Wake em Up" value because:
* You have audience members on stage,
* You are in the audience, and
* Audience members are providing the input.
When you are an expert with your public speaking skills, you are not
doing this with flip charts. You could have duel overhead projectors
for larger crowds. You could still even have your PowerPoint
on a screen in the middle of the stage. The mere fact the audience has
to look this
way and that, back and forth, will help keep them awake.
You could even have flip charts placed all around the room so they
ready when you break up into smaller groups. Then the results pages
could be torn off and taped in a row on the wall. This involves thinking
ahead, and keeping the heads of your audience moving, back and forth,
both inside and out.
