Innovative presentation ideas


My organisation holds a communication day session for all company employees once a year. This takes 5 separate days to complete. I am looking for an innovative way for employees to learn more about and understand the implications of food quality to the business (target audience shop floor people). We have used actors in the past for safety messages, and elaborate DVD film presentations. Any ideas out there for what else we could do.
I am open to any out of the box ideas.

  1. Food quality suggestions
    How about a blind-folded taste test? Like you see in a lot of ‘challenge’ tv shows. You could have several blindfolded volunteers, then wheel out samples of food of varying quality (nothing harmful), have the volunteers sniff them or taste them while others observe their responses.

  2. How about role plays?
    Perhaps you could get participants to pretend to be different people commenting on the food: newspaper restaurant reviewers, various types of customers (assuming that you have customers with different views and requirements), etc.

    If you have a range of samples, perhaps you could get participants to sample them, rate them in quality order and vote on the results.

    Any exercise that gets people involved, and brings in a fun element, can turn a session from dull to interesting (as long as it remains relevant and achieves the key learning points).

  3. Falling Down
    Remember the Michael Douglas movie?

    You could conduct an exercise around “does this look like the picture?” and how people can feel when it doesn’t.

    It’s my pet hate regarding food quality – there’s nothing worse than buying food from some chain for it to be squashed, covered in sauce for several other products with cheese congealing in hard brittle lumps because it’s been held for so long. (And I don’t eat much junk food any more because of it)

    Though of course it does depend on what you mean by quality – it’s different for McDonalds than it is the Ivy.
