For ideal outcomes 10-15 participants in a session is recommended.
For groups over 15, several options are available, including:
Role plays: Role plays offer practice in mannerisms and context building. Role plays include:
Demos/Presentations: This training can be tailored for those preparing to present virtual demos, or for those going onsite to meet key players and deliver sales presentations. In these tailored training programs, we will specifically look at how to create convincing presentations, how to structure the time effectively, how to handle questions, how to pose questions to the group, what kind of information to include to convince Americans, how to follow up, and other relevant information. These types of sessions are best conducted with less than 5 people at a time.
Phone & Virtual Meetings: Two options fall under this heading. One of the below options can be chosen to customize the training.
1. A real-life business scenario or case study would be given, and participants must recreate a role play or mock meeting over the phone. Trainer will listen in and give feedback.
2. Trainer will listen in on a real-life client meeting and give feedback for improvement.
Face-to-face Meetings: Similar to virtual meetings, but with additional feedback on how to be a good audience member or an active participant (body language, non-verbal and verbal cues), with a focus on listening and group discussion skills.

"Breaking up the meeting into segments is the most important lesson today. It's not important to talk too much or too fast, but to give good feedback in a way that's easy to follow and understand. If I break up the meeting into segments, the meeting becomes conversational and relaxing."
