Extreme Panels: Surprisingly Unique Formats for Asking & Getting Answers From Panelists
A panel experience that audiences actually rave about is as rare as a unicorn sighting. To craft an Extreme Panel (variety, contrast, insights, diversity, surprise, interaction) you have to know precisely what you are trying to AVOID (repetition, sameness, platitudes, rambling, dearth of content audience members don’t already know)…and then how to goad panelists to spill in a compelling way.
In Extreme Panels, Brian will vividly showcase 10+ formats for asking questions to panelists in unexpected ways, while also structuring how the panelists’ responses are delivered.
The Extreme Panel formats include:
- Would You Rather polling
- Lightning Round
- One breath wonders
- New week, next month, next year tips
- Hot Seat (make panelists squirm)
But wait, there’s more. Brian will demonstrate every format (as well as the importance of panel member “types”) with a star-studded diverse panel of NSA Northwest members. So, attendees will simultaneously experience the formats AND great content answers.
By attending this session, participants will:
- Discover how to jump start a panel discussion (give audience members hope instead of despair)
- Create and sustain variety in questioning formats
- Transform audience members from recipients to participants
