The Moose Joke – The best session closing story of Scott Simmerman

This is not a poem or a quip but it is the best closing storyline out there for a workshop. I say this after attending a whole big bunch of sessions for training and development or team building programs over the past 40 years, so I offer this up as something you might choose to use, since I deliver only a handful of sessions these days as I focus more on my writing and materials development.

This is the long, narrated version, with my comments about delivery and anchoring the joke / story to the session’s desired outcomes or key learning points. It is meant to be instructional.

Any comments and suggestions and reactions would be most appreciated, for sure!

For the FUN of It!
