Here is where you get to see the magic happen, the heart of the Incitement Experience, the formula to inspire your audience and transform their inspiration to take action. We will show you a basic program content flow of the event. Study it, understand it, and see if it would work well with the people in your community.
Here’s a summary breakdown of what happens during each event – this will help you visualize how an Incitement Experience is in action:
As participants arrive, a representative will get them to mingle and connect with other participants This goes on 30 minutes before the event starts. During the registration process you can capture information to grow your database.
As the show is about to start, play the 5-second countdown (media movie showing countdown). Play the Incitement montage after the countdown and when the montage is finished, you can play part of a song to get the audience pumped up.You can view this video on YouTube here
Get the audience pumped up and excited. For example, get them to do high fives to the person next to them, do a Mexican wave, etc. The host should get creative to give a unique touch to how the event is being hosted. This should not last longer than a minute.
After that, go straight to your first Inciter (speaker). Speaker comes on stage and speaks for 18 minutes max. As the host calls up a speaker on stage, you can play a song to pump up the atmosphere. Every speaker can choose their own entrance song (it will give a very cool effect!).
Up next we’ll have an exercise where the host becomes the facilitator/trainer. We have a variety of exercises to choose from and all of them have unique lessons for the audience to learn. From genuine personal growth exercises to energy building, they’re all designed to keep the audience hooked and get them to play and get outside their comfort zone. You can come up with any exercise you know of yourself.
Or you can pick from the example below:
After your group exercise, you go straight into Speaker 2. Always remember, when calling your speaker on stage, they must have an entrance song to them as they make wake to the stage. Reason why we do this is because music always helps elevate the experience of an event. Try it and let us know how it worked out for you.
The Roast is a karaoke presentation that is compulsory. This is where random people from the audience volunteer by coming up on stage, and present a random presentation that has been prepared for them. They can be creative, connect the dots between each slide, tell it like a story line etc. It’s all about quick thinking on their feet and this is the fun part of Incitement. The host will brief the volunteer how s/he can go about the presentation slides.
Save the best and most powerful and inspiring speaker for last. This depends on how good you know them and how they deliver.
When the last speaker has finished, there is an Appreciation Round. All the speakers are called up on stage, including the volunteers for the The Rant, and the audience shares their appreciation with the Inciters. They share who empowered them the most, who was their favorite, who inspired them etc. This is probably the most powerful part of the entire Incitement experience. When you get the audience to share their appreciation (not feedback) this opens up a whole new Pandora’s Box of positivity, motivation, impact,, intimacy, and engagement.
After the show finishes, there is a networking/mingling session. This is the moment the audience can get to know their speakers on a personal level, and mingle with other members of the audience.
