A lot of motivational speakers throw around words like interactivity and audience participation, but my personal feeling is that many don’t do that part with great success.
Here’s why a flash mob is different: there’s not just one person or group participating, the ENTIRE ROOM is involved. People are doing something fun and surprising; the music is blaring and the camaraderie is instant.A feeling is created.
Believe me, NOBODY in the audience ever thinks they want to be a part of a flash mob, but in the end, they are completely energized.They tweet, they text and they talk about being a part of something so unique and crazy even after the event is over. Bottom line: flash mobs deliver!
In my speeches, I am focused on delivering excellent content for the audience. But too much of that is not a good thing. People need to stop, breath and be a part of something on a large scale together.For a meeting to really be successful, audiences need to be participating and glad to be there.And when they are glad to be there, everyone wins.
