For years we have used quizzes and prizes to initially gather a crowd and engage them.
Sometimes having a flipchart as an unused backdrop shows passers-by that the speaker isn’t merely on a rant on top of a soapbox, but is doing an interactive presentation—giving people more confidence to pause and listen. Other times, we use each page as an illustrative tool.
In the two downloads below, you’ll find the files (which the team in the US uses) to print the chart yourself. Two options are included: the multi-page version is more comprehensive and goes through the gospel and common objections; the one-page version quickly shatters the ice and leaves room for more dialogue. (Often when the longer version is used, not all of the pages are utilized. After using it for a while, you’ll find which pages you’re more inclined to use.)
