Beth - these are great tips that will also work in the B2B environment, thanks for sharing!

Is there anywhere I can watch or listen to one of your presentations?

Hi Beth. I love the idea of reworking their questions into a discussion guide / note sheet!

Have you ever used wireless clickers for realtime feedback *during* the session? (The ones I've used are at http://www.turningtechnologies.com/.) This can tell you if the group is following you or lost. Of course, twitter could be used in the same way, but if they're on twitter they're probably not coming to this workshop.

The clickers also allow the group to learn who they are, what they hope to accomplish, how confident they are, etc. In my experience there are often surprises. This can get everyone on the same page at the start of the workshop, which is a great way to start.
