How

In this workshop you will be challenged by confrontational statements and images, that will lay the groundwork for lively discussions, where everyone participating can exchange experiences. In addition, exciting presentation projects and activities at The Conductor Workshop will inspire and engage you. Our methods are based on modern behavior psychology, updated literature within leadership and communication and our own experience from facilitating close to 200 workshops and having “keynote speaker” assignments at various events in Scandinavia and Europe.

Who

The Conductor Workshop is useful for everyone.  Personally, or as an organization, we can all benefit by being aware of the way we convey our messages or thoughts. We have experienced that everyone, regardless of department, field or personality, has shown impressive progress after completing this workshop.  We therefore recommend that as many as possible in your organization are invited to participate.  To ensure all participants receiving the attention they deserve, we recommend a maximum of 20 people.

Where

The Conductor Workshop has a very specific and “personal” form that works best by being held at your company. This to ensure that all questions, answers and discussions can be done internally without taking into consideration outsiders.

Preparation

Prior to the workshop we will choose a few participants and they will be asked to give a 3-minute presentation during the workshop. In advance, they will be informed about the methods they should use so they can show how they think these should be implemented. Who is chosen and what themes, will be discussed during the Skype meeting prior to the workshop.

When

The Conductor Workshop starts with a 30-minute Skype introduction, a few days prior to the workshop. The attendants here are KOGGER and the ones at your company coordinating the workshop. This introduction ensures that expectations, content and goals are synchronized. The workshop itself usually starts at 9am and lasts until 3pm. Generally, there is no preparation required except something for taking notes. The meeting room should have a projector/screen and internet access. We also appreciate you arranging a mutual lunch for all participants.

Next Step

Some of our customers have asked for a more one to one follow- up after this workshop in order to work on specific qualities or techniques. This can be agreed upon separately in each case and can be booked by hour or as an adapted all-day workshop.

Feeling

The Conductor Workshop is a workshop that will help you to move you out of your comfort zone and strengthen your self-confidence! You will be surprised, challenged and inspired to continue working on your presentation techniques, whenever you communicate.
