Small Audience, Big Room? No Problem!
TIP
1
Your first task
is to move
everyone to
the front of
the room
right as
they’re
walking in
the door
THIS IS IMPORTANT
Because once
people take a seat
and get settled,
it will be much
harder to get them
to change seats

Small Audience, Big Room? No Problem!

  • 2. One of the biggest nightmares for presenters is arriving at the venue to see a small audience sitting in a BIG ROOM
  • 5. TIP 1 Your first task is to move everyone to the front of the room right as they’re walking in the door THIS IS IMPORTANT
  • 6. Because once people take a seat and get settled, it will be much harder to get them to change seats
  • 8. This will make your audience seem like an intimate group of your friends and turn an awkward situation into a pleasant one
  • 9. IF YOU’VE STAYED LOCAL FOR YOUR PRESENTATION, ALSO WANT TO CALL ONE OF YOUR BFFs AND HAVE THEM COME DOWN & SIT IN THE AUDIENCE TO SMILE AND SUPPORT YOU YOU MAY
  • 12. This burst of energy will naturally accompany you on stage and the audience will immediately be engaged
  • 13. When your room is packed with audience members, it’s okay to pause throughout your presentation to ask if anyone has questions TIP 5
  • 15. While large audiences make it hard for you to notice facial expressions, smaller, intimate groups make it very easy This is an advantage and means you can look for pacing cues TIP 6
  • 16. If you see audience members looking puzzled/confused, slow your pace down and be sure to review any key presentation points that might have gotten lost
  • 18. Should you still have a little bit of time provide the audience with your contact information so they know how to get in touch with you in case questions come up later
  • 21. But smaller audiences don’t have to be a bad thing and can even be a blessing in disguise
