4. Industry-relevant samples
Both the presentation tool (typically PowerPoint) and the worksheets should include examples that illustrate the principles being taught. Further, these samples work best when they’re related to your own industry, revealing the lesson’s skills/ideas within the context of familiar vocabularies and concepts.
CAUTION: Resist the temptation to include samples of your own organization’s work. The author(s) may be in the workshop, exposing them to embarrassment. Worse, even the suspicion that the responsible parties may be in the room will inhibit the free flow of discussion, criticism and feedback that’s critical to the workshop’s success.
