If you toss a question out to the whole group and you receive a bunch of blank stares, it can be helpful to ask people to turn to the person next to them and share their thoughts, then bring it back to the large group and ask again.
When someone in the audience asks a question, turn it back to the audience and ask: what do other people think about that question? It allows the rest of the audience to share their insights and experiences (and gives you time to think of a good answer, too!).
When you have a PowerPoint slide projected on the screen, it focuses the audience's attention. If you have some things to say that don't pertain to a slide in your deck, you may just want to hit the "B" button on your keyboard. The screen will go blank and your audience will pay a little more attention to you. (Hit "B" again to bring your slides back up)
Debriefing your icebreaking activities is important, though sometimes your icebreaking activities may not seem to have any relationship with the content you plan to cover. Sometimes it's helpful (and fun just to see what the learners come up with) if you simply ask: what do you think that activity has to do with the content we're about to cover?
