6 Best Practices for Sharing Information

Many of us are experts in our field - possibly art historians, historians or archaeologists - and want to share that incredible knowledge with the groups we lead in our programmes.

But knowing what information to share, how to share it and when to share it is often tricky – especially on interactive, discussion-based programmes. And what happens when you add too much information? And how much is too much?

Sharing information that is engaging and memorable (without overloading your participants) is a great skill to master.

In this week's episode I'm sharing some thoughts on information delivery and 6 best practices for how to share your knowledge AND keep your audience engaged and curious (as opposed to bored and frustrated).

Make your knowledge work for you. Learn how to use information as a tool to create curiosity and engagement in episode 12!
