Speak now

Fellow speaker,

If you want to close with your audience speaking, make sure you:
  1. Give the audience a visual cue where they are supposed to speak (e.g., gesture in their direction when it is their time to speak)
  2. Establish early on in the speech that the audience will be speaking (e.g., lead the audience into repeating your main points throughout your speech), this ensures that they are ready to participate at the end of the speech
