Increasingly, meeting planners are asking for it. Audiences are demanding it. What is it? More interaction from speakers! It is no longer enough to be the “sage on the stage.” The highly-paid speakers have discovered the key to engaging audiences is to become a facilitative speaker—both in their delivery of keynotes and training and in customized workshops that follow these events. The COVID 19 pandemic forced everyone to pivot to virtual work and virtual programming. This increases the need for speakers to master the power of facilitation. This program will explain and demonstrate how professional speakers can use the power of facilitation to grow their speaking business.
1. Define facilitation and why it matters for speakers.
2. Identify opportunities for facilitation.
3. Explain methods and techniques appropriate for speakers.
