For the past 5 years or so, Thiagi has been having fun at his keynote presentations by getting his audience members actively involved in a series of jolts. It is interesting to watch large groups of people standing up, milling around, and working on individual and partnership activities. It is not irrelevant fun and games, because Thiagi brings everything home through debriefing and connecting the experiences to key concepts related to his topic.
In this Vimeo video, Thiagi is at the annual conference of the Creative Problem Solving Institute. Thiagi (or his evil twin brother?) spontaneously picks up the theme of an earlier presentation on the importance of execution and gets everyone involved in exploring the topic in greater depth.
Watch the video and get some pointers for smoothly incorporating jolts in your presentations.
