DEVELOP A POSITIVE RELATION WITH LEANERS
Here are some tips on the best time to deliver training.
The best time is first thing in the morning.
As you approach coffee break interest wanes.
As you approach lunch, audience attention is focused on the prospects of food.
After lunch, audience attention is focused on digestion. Showing slides and films in a darkened room after lunch invites people to sleep. If your audience have been drinking, they can be inattentive, argumentative or sleepy.
Training after dinner gives you the problems of subdued lighting, full stomachs, pre-dinner cocktails, and dinner wine.
Speaking at lunch gives you the additional problem of people concerned with getting back to work.
Dinner and lunch speakers should keep it short, keep it moving, and keep it interesting.
