Short speeches and reflections

Meetings in Denmark
Purpose: To ensure short and concise messages, and that the participants relate actively to the information given.

Use

During presentations which the participants must deal with.

Method

Before the speech, inform the participants that you will be speaking for a maximum of "x" minutes (best if "x" <15 minutes), after which the participants get to share their perceptions of what they have heard / discovered. This takes place in small groups (3-4 people).

Why involve your meeting participants

Active involvement makes meetings more valuable because:

  1. It helps you make better decisions
  2. It increases networking and knowledge sharing
  3. It engages and motivates the participants
