Interactive Speakers

© Andrea Driessen

You’re producing an event because you want attendees to learn something. What if they don’t?!

We often assume that simply exposing meeting goers to speakers fosters learning. Yet coming face to face with new information isn’t learning. Learning only happens over time, when we interact with fresh insights and apply them to our own experiences.

Say YES to Galen and…you get experiential skill-building activities that apply the improv concept of “Yes, And” to improve communication, leadership, engagement, performance, and culture.

One-of-a-kind kinesthetic, multi-sensory learning moments that boost team cohesion, content recall, discretionary performance, creativity, accountability, performance and the creation of a common language for a more intentional, shared culture. Post event, you receive a tool that maintains individual and team accountability so everyone achieves your most mission-critical goals.

It’s high time for Enter-"train"ment. Your audience can join in a round or two of keynote karaoke to keep energy high and spirits higher. Yell Kan-YAY as they rap a parody of Kanye West’s Gold Digger, that is, “GOAL DIGGER.” They play games like GOALympics. Root for colleagues who are competing in a lively on-stage game of Work/Life Balance Ball. All while gaining actionable content that boosts productivity, sales, and goal achievement.
So, if you want to actually help attendees learn, you should invite experts who are able and willing to facilitate interaction - as a "guide on the side," not just a "sage on the stage." We call it a wenote™ - vs. the standard keynote - where participants engage in co-creating an interactive, actionable, learning-rich experience.

David Meerman Scott
David Meerman Scott
INTERACTIVE SUPER POWERS (ISPs)
David’s been interacting meaningfully with audiences for over 10 years. He intimately knows the power of proximity, and how, in these closer-up interactions, the unconscious brain can respond to what we see as if it were our own experience…even if what we see is on a far-away stage and we aren’t even directly interacting ourselves. All because of mirror neurons, which activate when we perform an action—AND they fire when we observe someone else performing the same action.
