Please please please no PPT, Andrew!
Pass out paper and pencils and ask everyone to draw a picture of a prostate.
Get them participating. Doing helps listening.
Figure out the one big thing you want to get across and hammer it. Forget everything else.
I like this. No ppt...speak from the head/heart.
I also like getting audience participation. I give a lot of presentations (almost always, however, with ppt). I did one about
2 weeks ago where I went to the Dollar Store the night before and bought $10 of goofy trinkets to give out as "prizes" to the first one to answer each of 10 very basic, fundamental questions I had at the beginning which helped to also "educate" others about
some of the foundations of what I was then going to talk about
. It was an entertaining way to bring everyone up to the same baseline of understanding. The audience of about
25 loved it...and everyone was very actively engaged.
Saipan's suggestion on paper/pencil sparked another idea I'll offer an extension of, too. Don't waste valuable time passing out pen/pencil...besides, a drawing of a prostate is just a walnut-sized circle. How about
this: Ask the men to make an "O" with thumb and forefinger (like an "ok" hand gesture). Then hold it directly over their pelvic bone. This is how big it is, and where it's located, just on the other side of the bone...
