CAFE STYLE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Cafe Style Pop-Up Learning Cafes

Pop-Up Learning Cafes provide an informal learning environment where people are free to explore, discuss and discover all possibilities.

This is a place where, even in the limited time of 60-90 minutes in each Espresso Learning Pod Session, (of which there are typically three-four sessions in one day), you can train 150-180 people a day.

In these Cafe Style sessions, you can experience more profound learning outcomes than from a full day of rote based training

What's in the Cafe Style Activity Box?

Cafe Style boasts a portfolio of hundreds of experiential microlearning activities across 15 cafe themes, addressing key learning and culture change challenges for today’s organizations!

Each activity is designed to allow Change Champions, L&D/OD Practitioners, or Leaders to develop specific thinking, behavior or skills in individuals and groups!

All themes can be tailored to your unique learning and culture needs!

Tailoring Cafe Style to your Needs

When it comes to training, one size does not fit all. Many organizations have many learning needs that are not met by open or off-the-shelf programs.

Services include customization and curriculum conversion into experiential microlearning activities and programs.

Tailoring Cafe Style is efficient and effective when you harness the power of our creative and innovative design team!

CAFE STYLE EPIC METHODOLOGY

Experiential

90% of what’s being learned is being remembered when doing. Experiential means we immerse ourselves in the experience and feel our way through it, raising our self-awareness and emotional intelligence.

Playful

Adult learning is most effective in a positive emotional state: when it’s fun. It makes intimidating, perplexing material engaging and easier to comprehend. Many areas of neuroscience provide proof that without play we cannot have the creativity and innovation we need.

Iterative

A cyclical process leads to twice the impact of traditional linear learning and builds new habits and paradigms. Habits and paradigms dictate our behavior and decision making as we go about our daily lives.

Collaborative

Significant improvement in outcome is gained by adding social and collaborative elements to learning. Most learning occurs in informal settings; some say more than 70% and we are social beings, so whether we collaborate on, or off-line, the results are always more powerful.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US...

“I have been involved with Cafe Style since April 2016 and wow what a journey it’s been.  I’ve been training, coaching and facilitating for a long time. I love the way Cafe Style is shaking things up for the disruptive market place that we are now experiencing. It’s bringing together and confirming things I already know, but also I have learnt many new things. It’s that good that I get up at 4am to do the ‘virtual master class’ calls with people in different time zones from all around the world.”

Julie Watson, Brisbane 

Oh what ‘thunks’ you have and what fun you feel when you engage in Cafe Style Speed Training! I am loving my Master Facilitator program. I cannot recommend the methodology or company enough.

Mairead Turner, Leicester

“Thank you for a brilliant course so far, I have to say the enthusiasm you have for cafe style is very infectious and it always makes for a wonderful session.”
