Rock Your Workshops: Creating Powerful Endings

Rock Your Workshops: Creating Powerful Endings

how to debrief your workshops, training sessions, and presentations for maximum long-term impact | taught by Ida Shessel

Course description

So you’re sitting down to plan your workshop, training session or presentation and as a typical presenter, you’re planning a value-packed session.

Chances are you’re not giving a whole lot of attention to the ending – especially if you’re a fan of the 3 part model “tell them what you’re going to tell them, tell them, and then tell them what you told them.”

Here’s the problem. These days people are overwhelmed with information. It’s coming at them from all directions – work, the internet, their smartphones, the TV, flashing billboards – and your session!

That’s what you and I as presenters are up against. We have to break through all that noise and design our sessions in a way that our audiences can remember and use what we teach them.

That’s where your session ending comes in. It’s the last thing your attendees will see, hear, and do before they leave your session. A plain old “tell them what you told them” summary just won’t do.

You need to make your endings powerful – so that your audiences remember and use what you’re teaching them. That’s how you make a long-term impact!

Students in my sessions have come from government agencies, the non-profit sector, Fortune 500 companies, and small businesses.
