Solution Room The Solution Room is a closing session format designed to action the learning at the end of a conference or workshop. If you would change only one thing at your next conference, this could be it. Although it is a participant led format, it is strictly protocoled and facilitated to encourage maximal peer-to-peer coaching and peer learning. It is a highly immersive and interactive experience. Not more content at the end of the conference but a synthesis and activation of what has been learned at the conference. The format is a highly unusual experience where all participants are brought out of their comfort zones and guaranteed energised and excited at the end to activate their learning once they get back to their workplace or personal lives.
