Business Seminar Presentation

Today, much of my professional work is for business seminars and corporate conferences. I use this presentation for those groups and industry-specific trade shows. It has built-in humor these types of audiences can relate to, because it involves concepts and terms they normally use in their daily work.

The handling is identical except I involve the whole group in the effect. I tell them I will divide the onlookers into two product teams: Team A and Team B. Then, I split the crowd in the middle.

I have everyone on Team A look on as one of them punches in the numbers they chose to produce the product of the multiplication. As in the previous presentation, I mention the team probably didn't even know what the "product would be" until the equals button was pushed.

I then do the same for Team B. I hand the business card to one member of either group, asking him to act as "the manager." After asking both teams to concentrate, I divulge the numbers in the back-and-forth manner I described previously. I direct attention to the pad and ask the members of Team A if they remember their original two numbers. When they tell me, I write them down, then multiply them out in longhand as described previously. I do the same for Team B. After that's done, I explain I wanted to show them these are the "real deal" products for the numbers they chose.

Throughout the remainder of the presentation, I continually stress I am using the "real deal" numbers they decided on ... if they'd changed just one of those "real deal" digits the result would be vastly different. The participants can entirely relate to an ending about team oriented results!
