Explain to participants that they have been asked to travel on a work trip. When they reach the check-in desk, they are informed that their flight has been overbooked and their seat has been taken.
The flight representative asks, as there are no more seats in Economy, would they like to be upgraded to First Class?
As the participant boards the flight and turns left, rather than right, they notice a businessperson near their seat in first class who is reading a trade magazine relevant to the participant’s business.
The participant takes the seat and is just getting comfortable when the businessperson looks across and says, “So, what is it you do then?”
- Give the participants 20 minutes to craft their response to the businessperson.
- Once everyone has had some time to prepare their answer. Ask each in turn to present their thoughts to the other people in the group.
- After each participant takes a turn, review their responses and discuss how engaging the conversation would be and the chances of it reaching a goal of completing a sale.
- Take note of the key points raised throughout each review session and use them to provide a full review once everyone has had a chance to present. Link the learning points back to the main session.
