Will you send me the slides?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Have you ever been on a course where someone is standing at the front talking and referring to projected PowerPoint display?

I’d assume most of us have.

We do this at our monthly find out more meeting (www.theacademygtc.co.uk/briefing-meeting).

Nothing wrong with it as a method.


Have you ever seen when the presenter says “I’ll send you the slides”………..

That the level of attention immediately drops?

People stop taking notes.

“I don’t need to – I can check the slides later” they may think.

But, from your own experience, how many will do that?

Some, sure.

But many won’t.

Or whenever someone puts there hands up and says “Will you send me the slides?”………….

They’ve never come with a notebook and pen.

They haven’t been paying attention all that much so far.

They haven’t come ready to learn then and there.

Sending the slides is a bit like sending you a diet plan.

We often have people asking if we can do that.

“Just tell me what to eat” and I’ll do it they may say.

Thing is though, they’ve been able to get free diet plans via Google for at least 15 years now for free.

Been sent something else that won’t get used isn’t the answer.

Doing the equivalent of ‘paying attention during the course’ is.

Looking through the Nutrition sections of the App or members site if you are a member to get clear on what needs to happen to get the result you desire.

Making an effort to remember the points pertinent to you.

Using the meal planning system on the Food tab / site to generate meal plans that fit with your requirements and personal preferences.

Or doing your own version.

Tracking what you’re eating for 3-5 days and getting us to have a look if you’re not sure what can be changed.

We could send you the slides / meal plan.

But from our own (and, probably your) experience, it won’t get used much.

Maybe a little.

But nothing beats that learning and then applying that you get from a good course (the find out more meeting is on Wednesday if you, or a friend, are ready to upgrade from the equivalent of a one day course to a Master’s Degree –> www.theacademygtc.co.uk/briefing-meeting) 🙂
