Not To Get Too Technical, But It’s All To Do With Cognitive Filters
The average person has sat through 1,000 PowerPoint presentations before
It’s not that we have a problem with PowerPoint specifically, but Cognitive Filters mean that when we think we’ve seen or heard something before, we tune out. Rather than really listen to what a person is saying, we draw on our existing knowledge bank and connect the dots in ways we think make sense. Even if they’re different to what’s being said.
To overcome Cognitive Bias, we have to truly experience our information, not just hear it.
Luckily, There’s A Solution And It’s Called Active Learning
Active Learning is the process of using activities to spark discussion and group work to bolster audience engagement and enhance learning
The National Academy of Sciences concluded that Active Learning makes student failure rates plummet by 35 % compared to traditional lectures. This was the largest and most comprehensive review of the effect of Active Learning in education, and there’s plenty more research that praises this process. Read the full article in Wired here.

The Implications For Corporate Communications Are Immense
We think Donald Sull (the guy from the MIT video) says it best:
“If executives really want their strategies to be understood they should focus less on their PowerPoint slides and more on how they structure and lead discussions in the organization”
Armed With This Intel, We Decided To Do Things Differently
We steer clear of PowerPoint Marathons or Bandana Bonanzas
WE ENGAGE: We embed active listening, two-way communication and immersive participation
WE INSPIRE: We use proven gamification techniques and challenges
WE UNDERSTAND: We deliver premium content, tailored to clients’ needs

When you gamify or workshop a challenge, you get better results, faster. These products work for small or large teams (from a huddle of six to a group of thousands) and are designed to crack a variety of challenges. From rolling out a new communication strategy to embedding corporate values, here’s a snapshot of some of our powerful products:

Each year, we send over 500 teams off on extraordinary, thrilling and memorable group experiences. Similarly to our workshops and business games, we use the latest technology (including sleek, fast tablets) and work with teams of any size.
