Everyone dislikes attending a mundane seminar, especially if they have already paid a considerable sum of money for it. Hence, one should always try to incorporate some form of entertainment to keep the audience on their toes. This is also something to set your seminar apart from that of others. By having an entertainment element in your seminar, it might just be that additional factor to aid one in his/her decision-making.
As entertainment can come in various forms, exactly what form of entertainment would be the most ideal? Well, the first thing you need to take note of is that when we mention entertainment, it doesn’t necessarily have to be something of a physical form nor a fairly large extravagant. In fact, it can be as simple as adding humor into your presentation. Once again, that’s of course if you have a good sense of humour and if it is relevant to you presentation. Although it may seem like just a small gesture, humour lightens up your audience, keeping them all ears.
Another form of entertainment can be either videos or interesting stories. This allows you to keep the audience engaged. These are rather basic steps for you to take. However, it would be a break from just listening to you all the way. This also gives you the chance to take a break yourself. At the end of the day, if you do decide to use videos or stories in your presentation, you should ensure that these are capable of adding value to your seminar as a whole.
Depending on both the audience as well as the topic of your seminar, you may even consider bringing in a musician to provide musical entertainment. The only issue here is that not everyone has the same taste in music, so it might be a challenge to find a common ground. Nonetheless, music has the ability to tell a story and speak to your audience. It can definitely liven up their mood.
Ultimately, you yourself should try to have fun during your seminar. The enjoyment you have will definitely reflect in the way you behave and your body language. Your audience will be able to identify if you’re being genuine and sincere or if you are simply there just to complete your job or task.
