As an alternative to keynote presentations, I also offer stimulating interactive seminars. In this format, I pause throughout my keynote presentation to propose some ethical dilemmas for the audience to ponder and discuss. People divide into subgroups to discuss the hypotheticals and to formulate answers to the ethical questions presented.
After about fifteen minutes, the subgroups gather as a single group, whereupon I spontaneously seek each subgroup's reasoning for the solution offered. This has a two-fold benefit: people quickly discover that the intangible virtue of integrity has many tangible applications; and members of a homogeneous group discover if they are on the same ethical page—and if not, why not!
