Does anyone know of a good ice-breaker for money laundering training

  1. you’ve got..
    two there already Sarah!

    I used to sell anti-money laundering software but frequently used to say ‘money laundering software’…

    That usually woke up the jokers.

    The other is your surname :*)

    Cheers Euphrosene

  2. Jokes work for very serious subjects
    I’ve found that jokes do work well for serious subjects. It gives the trainer chance to get the delegates away from any hang-ups they may have entered the room with.

    One creative but challenging way that I’ve seen used on financial services sales courses is to get the delegates to think of a joke on the subject and share it. This is done after the first “round the table” which is restricted to name, rank, number. There is always allowance for miserable souls like me to opt out provided they vote for their favourite at the end of the round

  3. Welcome to Money Laundering Class
    I always tell delegates at the start of the course that I’m going to show them the ‘tricks of the trade’ which always gets their attention, I usually finish by telling them I will be checking that they do not disappear to Barbados with their ill gotten gains!

    My training is about Foreign Exchange bureaux, so I keep a couple of forged notes that have been received in our bureaux to show how bad or good the forgeries are. They are great to pass around. One word of warning, these notes *should* be passed onto the Police and a friend was once visited by the local Constabulary after a training session and she had to hand them over!

    I find delegate stories work well too, there’s usually at least one person that has seen the £20 notes where the Queen has a beard…

  4. Discuss their own ideas!
    Why not get the group to break up into 3-4s and get them to identify different money laundering opportunities or real life examples they may have heard of (from the media of course) – then share with the rest of the group and award the best example with a bag of chocolate money. You can then introduce some real examples and go on to talk about how to spot them etc… (And remain for ever suspicious of the winning team!)
