The Training Tipping Point

Fellow speaker,

Some tips for giving training talks:
  • Give prizes away for those who either answer a question or who fit a certain description (e.g., "Who has been here the longest?  You have?  What's your name?  Bob?  OK, Bob, here is a pen in recognition of your service.")
  • Share thoughts about different approaches to common issues in open discussion
  • Create humor out of situations that come up during the training
