Key skills to engage groups in their own learning.

1 Day course


Minimum 12, maximum 20 recommended.


The traditional approach to imparting knowledge and information tends to be through one-way presentations and lectures. Unless the subject matter is absolutely riveting and the lecturer is extremely skilled, most of the delegates will find their attention straying within about 20 minutes. In addition, recall of what has been covered may be very poor indeed. It is therefore not surprising that we find ourselves having to run ‘refreshers’ or spend time on an individual basis going back through the very things we have already covered. This is not only time-consuming but can also be costly.

People learn better and faster when they are actively engaged. Meetings achieve more effective outputs quicker when run in an interactive way. This course will provide the delegates with key strategies to accelerate learning and enhance the quality of outputs.

Topics / Content:

• Beginning with the end in mind – what is the purpose / objective of the session?
• Before the kick-off – groundwork that makes a difference!
• Getting started – engaging the hearts and minds of the delegates.
• Harnessing the capabilities of the delegates – group work / self-exploration.
• The power of ‘effective’ questioning.
• Maintaining energy and motivation – making it fun!
• Using case studies.
• Audio Visual Aids – the pros and cons.
• And finally – making the material work for your delegates.


On completion of this course, delegates will be able to-

• Accelerate the learning process of delegates in their team briefings and training sessions.
• Significantly improve the level of recall and retention of information.
• Tap into and harness the natural talents and experiences of their audiences


Total course fee is £2000 + Vat.
