Workshops consist of talk, questions and answers. There are no power points, audio visuals, break out sessions, role playing exercises or group activities. Participants are not expected to introduce themselves. Workshops run better if participants are on video but it is not compulsory. Each workshop follows a script. By using scripts more topics can be covered in less time with complete accuracy. Participants are sent a copy of the script by email after the workshop. The trainer may add unscripted remarks during the workshop to liven things up. Workshops do not require prior knowledge. Everything is explained in everyday language. Jargon and acronyms are kept to a minimum.
