I attended a very good training program last week. The program ended with a little closer that was so simple but so effective. Seated in a circle all participants were given a few post-it notes and asked to write down:
1.Their most memorable moment
2.The main learning point they will take away
In turn the participants were asked to come forward and place their 2 post-it notes on the 2 flipcharts which were headed with the above statements whilst explaining their choices.
Everyone listened intently for funny and meaningful moments on the program; some were moved to tears with some of the insights and thoughtfulness of others. It was a nice way to say thank you publicly to some people and above all it was a very simple exercise that worked very well.
At the end of the closer the tutors had a record of all that was said, ready to take away and record if necessary.
