Learning delivery methods

LEARNING DELIVERY METHODS

With over two decades of experience supporting people and organisations to learn, develop and grow, we’re chuffed to introduce Laughology’s growing number of delivery methods.

We are renowned for our live face-to-face delivery and have now created webinar and e-learning formats, ready for the new-normal, which incorporate the same level of fun, insight, and energy you would expect from a Laughology workshop or learning programme. But let's not forget - with Laughology was there ever an old- normal?

All our keynotes, workshops and programmes can be delivered through Zoom, Microsoft Teams or a platform of your choice. Sessions are recorded, so you can share them internally.
“We use workplace by Facebook. By using live streaming, we trained over 300 people in a really interactive session - thanks Laughology”
A fantastic online workshop on personal brand & impact...we all gained some great insight on social intelligence

Live delivery

We love a live crowd and are generally a bunch of show-offs, so we create a learning experience like no other. 

Our face-to-face keynotes, workshops and programmes are filled with our trademark, fun-filled stories that bring learning to life.  

Benefits of face to face delivery include:

  • Creating a unique energy in a room with the group

  • Being able to have 1:1 interactions as they arise

  • Instantaneous group interactions in response to what might be happening in a room


We can design events and live learning around your needs, so why not get in touch?


Webinars

Keynotes or workshops that are delivered through our Zoom platform or a webinar platform of your choice. Sessions are recorded, so you can share them internally.

Keynotes are normally between 45-75 minutes in length but we’re always open to suggestions.

Most workshops are delivered as a series of up to two 75 minute webinar sessions over a timescale of your choice. Weekly webinars get the best results, and we offer learning activities and group catch-ups in between sessions to embed learning.

Benefits of webinar delivery include:

  • Cost effective
  • Have greater flexibility if a person can’t attend, they can catch up with the recorded version
  • You can have a wider reach and create collaboration across global teams
  • Cheat sheets and additional learning material can be provided

What Vodaphone said

“A fantastic workshop on Personal Brand & Impact, run by Laughology online with our interns in Luxembourg and the UK.   We all gained some great insight on social intelligence and the people’s perceptions of you.”


LOL platform

We’re chuffed to introduce our brand new e-learning platform, Laughology Online Learning (LOL - possibly our greatest ever acronym).

Our e-learning package has all the benefits of our acclaimed face-to-face training, with the added bonus that you don’t have to get dressed for it. It includes videos, blogs and activity sheets, which means you’ll never be short of content to share with your team.

The LOL platform promotes behaviour change through a more engaging, long-term learning experience and presents the perfect alternative to face-to-face training. Perfect for delivering blended learning programmes, it’s also a more engaging way to keep groups connected on their learning journeys.

Benefits of the LOL platform include:

  • Organises all e-learning and learning content in on place
  • Provides unlimited access to e-learning materials
  • Reduces L&D costs by supporting self-directed learning

Blended learning 

Our blended learning mixes more traditional, offline face-to-face training, mentoring and coaching, with online opportunities to study, game and chat.

We create a learning journey through mixed experiences and opportunities to learn on-the-job, encouraging collaboration and innovative thinking across organisations. It’s an opportunity to bring learning into real life situations in the workplace, to embed, try and test new ideas.

 Benefits of blended delivery include:

  • Learning in the moment for greater connection of theory to practice
  • A more personalised learning experience
  • Can track learning against outputs more easily
  • Dedicated space to learn, collaborate and connect with their manager
