Public Speaking Course: 

Dueling Flip Charts

Here is a cool way to use flip charts in your presentation. Put one on both sides of the stage and jump back and forth between the two of them while you are presenting. You can have someone from the audience volunteer to help at each flip chart to record input from other audience members. You can practice this technique while taking your public speaking course.

This has a tremendous "Wake em Up" value because:

* You have audience members on stage,

* You are in the audience, and

* Audience members are providing the input.

When you have mastered this area in your public speaking course, you are not limited to doing this with just flip charts. You could have two overhead projectors for bigger crowds. You could even have your PowerPoint on a screen in the middle of the stage. The mere fact the audience has to look this
way and that, back and forth, will help keep them awake.

You could even have flip charts placed all around the room so they are ready when you break up into smaller groups. Then the results pages could be torn off and taped in a row on the wall.
