  • Shows an empty auditorium – the shape of things to come?Down economy – meetings industry hit hard by company and association travel budget cut backsThose who do show up carry iPhones and Laptops and text while you talk - some speakers freak out and find this rude. Better to turn to your advantage.This presentation will show you a number of ways in which social media can magnify the impact of a speech.
  • Here I’ll review key concepts from the book (TBD)Warning: More and more audience members will Tweet anyway while you speak. Get them involved or risk losing control.ALSO: Remember to record audio and video with low-cost digital recorders and cameras.Talking of recording …
  • Simple transcripts from audio recordings also work.ALSO: Scan archived Tweets to measure the impact of your talk (how many of your soundbites were picked up and re-tweeted?); post a speech transcript to your website or blog; share slides on slideshare.Which leads me to demonstrate one way to pull it all together …
  • In conclusion: pulling it all together Consider creating a Presentation Home Page.Integrate all social media on this site which is available before, during and after the presentation. Make it a repository for event details; session description; bio and contact information; poll results; presentation slides; reference materials; overview videos; handouts; live video feed of the presentation; blog postings prior and post-event; backchannel chat room area. Example: See: http://bit.ly/7yNOc6 for the Presentation Home Page of my talk today. I set it up mid-January and gathered feedback before I arrived to speak. Please review and add your comments, opinions… and Tweets!Remember: A presentation is one moment in time and space. Look beyond the auditorium - magnify the impact of a speech with social media.

  • Social Media magnifies the impact of a speech before, during andafteran event.
  • Traditional Media
  • Social Media
  • LinkedIn Groups & Polls enable you to research topics before you start writing a speech
  • Twitter gives the audience a backchannel for discussion during a speech
  • “…audiences today are no longer sitting quietly taking notes during live presentations. Instead, they’re carving out a new space in the room called a backchannel, where people are online searching for resources, checking your facts, and connecting with others inside the room and out.”
  • The Backchannel in Action
  • Podcasts and videos reach people after a speech is delivered
  • Transcripts
