Training Without PowerPoint

Feedback from our recent 'Presenting without PowerPoint' workshop

"I have gained ideas of how to use tools more efficiently and bring trainees into an interactive learning experience. I will revisit all my training programs and look at increasing participation." 


In Short

This highly interactive, one-day Presenting Without PowerPoint workshop will give you the knowledge and tools to run more participative and engaging training sessions and help to solve the problem of how to run better meetings. Not a PowerPoint slide in sight!

The Need for Presenting without PowerPoint:

Have you ever sat through a day-long training session of mostly PowerPoint thinking to yourself "there must be a better way?"  Perhaps you run meetings and as you stand there in front of an unresponsive audience you think to yourself "I wish you would participate more…come on, just give me something here!" Or perhaps you've turned up to a meeting room and you either can't get the A.V. equipment to work, it's been double booked or simply isn't there and you are left thinking to yourself "what do I do now?"


We like to think that people work perfectly and do the best job that they can with the tools that they have.  The challenge or problem comes when our toolbox is limited or when we don't choose the best tool for the job. PowerPoint is a great tool when used at the right time, the right place and in the right way.  Like any tool, though, it can be used incorrectly and overused.  As experts in experiential learning we would like to share some of our toolbox with you; to help you design and deliver more interactive and engaging meetings and training sessions and experience a training programme without PowerPoint.

Who is this Presenting Without PowerPoint workshop for?

This workshop is for anyone who is responsible for the learning and development of others. You might be a trainer, a manager or someone who increasingly finds themselves in a teaching role. You might be someone who simply wants to run great meetings that people look forward to. 


As someone who is passionate about helping others to learn and to grow, you will want as much of the information that you present to be retained as possible. This one day workshop will give you some practical tools and new ideas to increase engagement and participation levels in your training and meetings. With no PowerPoint, you will be an active part in your learning experience and explore how you can create higher engagement and more learning in what you do.
