Celebrating the work of Internal presenters



I need to organize an internal event to thank all the internal presenters that have been delivering/ designing courses for our Training Team.l

and I was wondering if you have any ideas of what type of sessions we could include as part of the event.

    Hi Adriana – what a wonderful question – positive news and recognition.

     Suggestions for me would depend on a number of things such as how well do the presenters know each other, the project and what each other has been doing? Is there more to do?

     From my experience of being involved (as an attendee and presenter) it is often a challenge how you say thanks and make it fun/enjoyable and not a lecture.

     So subject to the above questions/thoughts:

    • An activity to get the presenters to meet and known each other (non-musical chairs for example- subject to numbers…!)
    • An activity to identify the challenges faced to date and the successes achieved in facing them (progress to date and contribution)
    • Any challenges still facing us (meaning you and the team) and how to overcome them
    • Instead of having a prize giving for the presenters who have delivered the most (for example number of presentations, cost savings as a result etc), you could have a quiz (individual or team-based) with prizes. The idea of this is that there is no perceived favouritism or bias but there is recognition in a fun way.

     Good luck

    I have used an oscars type award ceremony for this type of event with funny award titles.I have asked memebers of the group to make the oscars  which also adds a fun dimension

    Hi Adriana

    I think you need to be clear about what you want out of it. So, when I was inhouse and did these events, we wanted to update the external consultants on what was happening internally, so that could be about the business as a whole as well as the training department; give them an opportunity to meet and network; have fun; say Thank you.

    Then we set a theme – two completely different examples: Christmas and a Pub. Around the theme, we designed the "business element" – Christmas event included update on appraisal system and competences, so we did an appraisal of Santa! For the Pub, we did a Pub quiz and "chicken in a basket" meals.

    Provided food and drink, networking time and a small gift. We ran it in the evening as most wouldn’t want to take time out of chargeable day and this also helped the social / relaxed atmosphere.
