Day 98: Learned About Engaging Your Audience (WIN Breakfast)

This morning I went to a WIN breakfast entitled: “Engaging Your Audience For Maximum Impact.” It was led by Sheri Bennefeld, and she did a WONDERFUL job.

She explained the success rates of various speech/presentation delivery methods.

Here are some figures:

A lecture has a 5% retention rate (24 hours after session)

Reading– 10%

Audiovisual–20%

Demonstration–30%

Discussion Group–50%

Practice By Doing–75%

Teaching Others–90%

Immediate Use–90%

and engagement= storytelling!

Remember for your presentation to provide/prioritize what is:

1. NEED TO KNOW (What needs to be delivered)

2. NICE TO KNOW (If you have time)

3. WHERE TO GO (The references/resources for more information)

Thanks Sheri! I’m going to use this information when I’m presenting next week–wish me luck!
