Our special meeting ‘speaking in the dark’ was a huge success.
In order to create a very unique training environment, we excluded every source of light out of the room. Consequently, the speakers did not see anyone in the audience and also the audience members were not able to see the speakers on stage.
That was a really enriching experience for both audience and speaker.
Bodylanguage is often given much weight in speech evaluation. That is great but we also have to focus on what the speaker says and how. This time we had the chance to focus purely on these verbal aspects of the speech.
After hearing inspiring prepared speeches by advanced speakers and a funny table topics session in the dark, we of course evaluated the speeches to learn – in the dark.
Thanks to every participant, especially to Roman and Max who have prepared this special meeting very well.
