Discover the new trend in presenting!
Training webinar: Present interactively—
Your audience expects it!
By Ellen Finkelstein
Learn to engage & involve your audience. They don't want to be passive!
There's a new way to present and it doesn't involve standing in front of an audience and talking. People have gone from sitting passively in front of a TV or movie screen to interacting on a computer or mobile device. Are you ready for the change?
Interactive presentation skills are important for your career! Learn how to:
- Involve your audience from the first few minutes
- Engage your audience throughout your presentation
- Start a conversation—and carry it through
- Use audience feedback to guide your content
- Create a menu in PowerPoint to structure an interactive presentation
- Use social media to encourage further interaction
Here’s what I covered:
- Why interactivity is necessary in today’s world: people are no longer willing to sit passively and take in information. They’re used to gaining knowledge interactively on the Internet, choosing what they want to see and hear.
- How to create a menu-based presentation that lets the audience control the direction of the presentation
- How to use third party software to make interactivity easy. I showed Yawnbuster and Raptivity Presenter
- How to use social media, specifically the “back channel” to create and manage interactivity.
Purchase the recording of the webinar and you'll also get:

"I especially liked hearing about the tools you like...like BackStory and Raptivity. That is helpful and saves me time that I would otherwise spend testing a bunch of things to see what works. Thanks again, I look forward to some new tips and tricks.". - Lori A.
"It was really great how you demonstrated what you were teaching, and gave us a feel for BackNoise, etc."
"I learned a lot of cool, cool things. Keep up the good work."
"I will definitely use this when I teach writing skills or grammar where the course comprises many quick topics, to find out which topics most people are interested in covering."
