Innovative training presentation – help needed for a job interview


II am required to deliver a presentation for a job role I have applied for and I need help in terms of peoples knowledge, expertise and guidance on how I can structure my presentation and also where I can source relevant information.

The presentation must be 10 minutes and on the following subject:- 'innovative Ways of delivering training to demonstrate communication skills, presentations skills, understanding of Learning and Development Role and methodologies used to transfer knowledge.'

I would greatly appreciate all feedback.

  1. innovative presentation
    Hello Nicola,

    Wow you have a lot to fit into ten minutes!

    I have an exercise that is word based which would allow you to cover all of the items requried in the timeframe.

    If you want a copy of this exercise please contact me at:



  2. Accelerated learning
    I am putting a presentation on Accelerated Learning for a Uni. course I am doing. It has a good powerpoint with it and some notes. I am happy to send it if interested.

  3. Structured Pragmativity

    Good luck with this one – as mentioned below, 10 minutes is not long for this.

    The technique I use is Structured Pragmativity which combines the best of both existing and new methods, focusing on brain-friendly techniques and creativity to achieve real results from objective-based training. Quite a mouthful, but it works.

    My one piece of advice to you is to demonstrate that what you are doing has a purpose – it can be as innovative and creative a delivery as you like but if you don’t know what business need it is meeting, then everyone is wasting their time. That is where the word ‘Pragmativity’ comes from – Pragmatic Creativity. I created the word (at least I can’t find any reference to it anywhere before it came to my mind) so I think I am qualified to talk about innovation but only with a purpose.

    Happy to let you have more information if you don’t find what you are looking for but you might also want to look at our website –

    Good luck with the interview.

  4. practice what you preach
    One way you can pack all of this is is to follow the accelerated learning acronym MASTER to structure your presentation.

    The other thing I would recommend in just 10 minutes is to engage as many of the 7 intelligences as possible, and provide opportunities for ‘passive’ learning. Having posters on the wall, getting people on their feet, giving them things to hold, using music etc, will not only help you to get your points across well, but it will also demonstrate that you practice what you preach.

    Good luck with the interview!

  5. 10 minutes is just fine
    Hello Nicola, so much advice, so confusing. Let me offer an alternative. Whilst demonstrating is fine, in ten minutes it will be rushed and have potential to work against you. Give a strong presentation and outline options rather than try and squash them all in. Demonstrate your positive speaking skills, your knowledge and leave them wanting more! Good luck

  6. Content or skills?
    It would be useful to establish from the company/agency specifically what the purpose of the presentation is-this may help you in deciding your approach. Are they testing your knowledge of the subjects/topics or just your presentation skills.
    Regardless the old, tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, tell them what you have just told them.

    Good luck!
