When a question is posed to the group: always immediately raise your hand and answer. After a question is asked there’s a moment of hesitation that silences the room for a split second. What follows is an avalanche of hands and volunteers. Don’t let that hesitation sink in. Raise your hand even if you’re not sure what you are going to say.
Does anyone have a question for the speaker?
Would anyone like to volunteer to be in the magic trick?
I just found this $100 bill. Does anyone want it?
Don’t hesitate. And don’t be afraid that you won’t know what to say. You’ll figure something out.
