This training game works particularly well with large groups or at events where everyone is expected to recall information that is provided to them.
Split the main group into several smaller groups and advise them that they will be creating an exhibition stand to present what they have learnt throughout the session or event.
The stand should be as colourful as possible and will represent their group’s interpretation of the information provided. It should be colourful, interesting and entice the viewer to ‘buy into’ the concept it is presenting.
You may also like to present a prize to the best exhibition stand.
Once the participants have completed their stands (after the allotted time), they should take the time to wander around the stands created by the other groups. They may leave only one person at a time at their own stand and everyone must take the opportunity to visit the other stands.
Participants will not only get the chance to review the information when creating their own stand, they will also review any points they missed when walking around the other group’s stands. The training game is simple, yet effective.
