An engagement board is a fun and interactive addition to an event. A question is posed to participants that is relevant to the theme of the day, such as “What does XYZ mean to you?” and I draw people’s responses on the spot. They can either approach me directly, or write their answer on a slip of paper. This type of activity works very well during a social time such as a cocktail hour, when people are mingling and networking, or in the lobby of an event space when attendees are arriving. The result is a meaningful collage of collected thoughts and wisdom.
