When making a presentation, ward off audience boredom by making it interactive. Four ways to deliver:

1. Create anticipation by using Twitter hashtags or a dedicated Facebook page to start discussions before the event takes place. The advantage: You can solicit feedback and network ahead of time.

2. Display a Twitter hashtag—for example, Steve Jobs could have used #worldsthinnestnotebook—for attendees to use.

3. Use an interactive service like PollEverywhere.com to turn a lecture into a conversation. The tool allows audience members to respond to questions via text message.

4. Keep the conversation going for weeks by referencing your topic on blogs or other social-media sites, or by e-mailing your contact list.
