Monday Musings: Involving Your Audience When Giving A Seminar

Obviously the people in this picture are not students of wine but preschoolers collaborating on a painting. I am using the photo to illustrate something that I know but was reminded this past weekend while giving a couple of seminars for the American Wine Society. While people want you to impart information to them, they also want to interact with you and the best result is always a collaborative endeavor. I am firmly convinced that the best seminars are those when you get a chance to participate in some way, either by asking questions, making a comment or giving your opinion. I hope that the people who were in my seminars this weekend appreciated my approach to seminars and inclusion.
