Energize Your Audience!: 75 Quick Activities That Get Them Started . . . and Keep Them Going (0787945307) cover image
Get 'em started and keep 'em going ? quick! Choose from the 75 hands-on activities in this book to:
  • Raise the comfort level of your participants
  • Jumpstart a training session
  • Energize a presentation
  • Stimulate group discussion

The key word here is quick! While there are tons of books containing icebreakers and energizers, many of the activities are too involved for the limited time available. This book solves that problem.

"A great way to get your session off to an active start is by adding Energize Your Audience! to your bookshelf. Lorraine Ukens has that special knack of writing exercises that immediately capture and energize your audience. And, isn't that what you want in an icebreaker?"
—Steve Sugar, coauthor, Games That Teach Teams

"Energize your audience. Easy to say and hard to do. This is a great resource to help deliver your message by capturing participants' attention so you can be heard."
—Ed Rose, author, 50 Ways To Teach Your Learner and Presenting and Training with Magic

"Energize Your Audience! is a treasure trove of energizing, creative, and easy-to-facilitate activities. Guaranteed to delight, motivate, and engage any training group, this collection is a 'must-have' on every trainer's bookshelf."
—Karen Lawson, CSP, Lawson Consulting Group, Inc.

All of these exercises are reproducible and can be easily facilitated in 15 minutes or less, leaving most of your valuable time to focus on the topic of the training session. Keep your participants alert and actively engaged in the learning process with the help of this invaluable resource!
