Is your training topic the opposite of engaging?
Are you struggling to do gamification without an app?
Is your training fun meter set too low?
Are you worried participants think your training classes are boring?
Has your training director ASKED you to be more interactive?
Are your evals stuck in the 3’s and 4’s?
Have you ever created a buzz with your training?
But the problem is that getting ACCESS to interactive techniques has been an ongoing training industry issue for years. What’s been so frustrating for trainers is that you have had just two choices...read a book or train-the-trainer. UNTIL NOW.
Choice #1: Read a book
Books have great ideas. But books won’t give you scripts, develop your slides, show you demos, or provide you step by step instructions. So, your confidence level for delivering their techniques is low.
Choice #2: Train-the-Trainer
TTT can be effective. But it’s expensive and limited. You have to fly to them and spend days getting certified. You can ONLY use the techniques their way. No customization. And you have to keep buying their materials every time you want to be interactive. That’s too restrictive.

Employees talk up their training experience, creating a “buzz factor”
Brian Walter is a trainer, Hall of Fame professional speaker, humorist, multimedia producer, and communications consultant. Early in his career, he searched for turn-key interactive techniques that could be customized. But they didn’t exist. So, he went out and created them.
Over the last 20 years with his company Extreme Meetings®, Brian has been perfecting interactive techniques in training classes and conferences all over the country. He has developed a reputation and brand as an exceedingly interactive trainer and speaker. But the secret is... it’s the techniques.
That’s why the heads of training departments, corporate trainers, and independent trainers and speakers have for years been asking if they could license these proven Extreme Meetings® techniques WITH all of the scripts and production assets that go with them. The answer has been no...until now.
By following detailed step-by-step instructions, you’ll have confidence the first time you facilitate a new technique
Your current training classes can be updated with simple 5 and 10-minute techniques
Two different games will provide you with a safe way for your attendees to discover they don’t know as much about a topic as they think they do
You’ll learn the secret facilitator trick to always know the answer to true or false questions
Getting volunteers will no longer be stressful for you or participants
Participants will actually tell THEIR bosses that your class was amazing
You’ll know exactly how to handle an executive who “pops in” to your training class and wants to do something without any preparation
As trainers and speakers, you’ll get exclusive access to interactive techniques most presenters will never get to use
You will have sophisticated PowerPoint training slides that you can customize
“The in-class live demo videos show you (Brian) being very funny. If I’m NOT all that funny of a trainer will the techniques still work as well?”
Yes...because the structure of the techniques is itself funny. For example, when you facilitate Flag Poll everyone will laugh the moment they start waiving their flags. It doesn’t matter if you say the question in a funny way or not. And in Teambuilding Would You Rather...the two extreme choices themselves are funny simply by you reading them out loud. Don’t worry, you WILL get laughs while they learn.
“Our Marketing department is extremely rigid. Can I make the Extreme® Trainings Techniques PowerPoint decks align with our brand standards?”
We provide you three or more different color combinations for the slide decks. Usually, you will find one that is pretty close to your organization’s color palette. But if not, feel free to modify the color palette to match you company colors. Plus, you can insert and size your logo however you need it to be. These decks can all “look” like your organization.
“I’m an independent speaker, not really a trainer. Can I still license these interactive techniques and use them for meetings and conferences with my external clients?"
“How do I actually access the techniques and materials?”
Once you enroll with Extreme® Trainings OnDemand, you’ll have 24/7 access on any device to all of the scripts, PowerPoint decks, demo videos and step by step how-to videos. This makes it convenient for you to learn and try out the techniques at your own pace.
“We have a really low budget. So, while I really like the idea of the Flag Poll technique, there’s no way I’m going to get approved to buy sets of flags for all the people in my monthly orientation class. Are there any other options for this?"
Definitely. We have a demo video and instructions on how you can use colored index cards instead of flags. They work JUST as well. Really! Participants SEE the flag image on the screen so that’s in their minds. And as long as you REFER to the cards as flags, everyone will act as if they are flags...and wave them like crazy! You CAN get great interaction with humble index cards.

Reduced turnover (nearly 25% of employees leave because of inadequate training)
