Audience participation ideas

Speak Schmeak

I've started meetings with icebreaker-type questions like, "What's the oldest item of clothing you're wearing?" For wrapping up at the end, you might hand out cards or pieces of paper with one-word concepts on them (I use "fear," "voice," "passion," "rules" and others related to public speaking), and ask participants to share something they've learned or will pursue regarding that concept.
