There are many ways to train your employees or get information into the hands of customers or clients. Educational workshops are the preferred method when you are rolling out a new process and need to address a large number of people. As is the case with any training vehicle, the important part is planning so that the message is properly delivered and accurately received. Here is some advice for planning workshops that can help you achieve success.
- Consider the Format- There are many ways to conduct workshops, so you have to determine which format will work the best for the situation. For example, consider the audience and the complexity of the information to determine whether it can be absorbed successfully in a single session or if there should be multiple workshops of shorter durations dividing the subject matter. Also consider the best way to present the material and whether you’ll include Q&A segments.
- Choose a Location- The venue for workshops needs to consider comfort and the ability to accommodate the number of people you will have present. Consider whether a stand-alone venue is needed to reduce noisy intrusions or if a convention center or other space would have the benefits you are looking for.
- Manage Attendance- Depending on the size of your workshops and to plan for variable expenses, you may want to utilize software to invite guests and have them register.
