When I was a kid, I was told by parents and teachers that "cheat sheets" were forbidden. It seems to me now that cheat sheets have a place - just not during test-taking times! Because of their bad reputation, I call them "Sweet Cheets," and I usually have two of them on my presentation table at all times.
One of my sweet sheets is a list of simple ways to get participants responding beyond the overdone "Raise your hand if..." The second sweet sheet is a list of on-the-spot activities that boost engagement and retention. While I usually plan for activity throughout the day, occasionally I recognize that it has been too long since the last activity. I can quickly glance at my Sweet Sheet and insert an energizer.
