Soapbox is an online tool that allows you to create virtual training sessions and face-to-face training presentations with accompanying materials (facilitator guide, PowerPoint slides, handout templates) in as little as 10 minutes. While Soapbox cannot predict your actual content, users report that it has gotten them 50%-80% of the way to their final training presentation, saving hours’ or even days’ worth of development time.
You enter the essential characteristics of your presentation, such as the amount of time for your presentation, the number of attendees, what online platform you’ll be using (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc.) or what type of seating for in-person training (small tables, classroom style, etc.), and what you want your training participants to do by the end of your presentation. Soapbox instantly searches its library of thousands of activity variations to generate a sequence and flow of activities for your presentation.
You can choose to swap out any activity generated by Soapbox. Each activity comes with two to five alternatives that may better fit your presentation and/or the facilitator’s comfort level and will always fit the situation (for example, if you’re doing an online presentation and your platform doesn’t have breakout rooms, you won’t get breakout rooms in your activities). If you feel a presentation is at risk of activity fatigue from all of the activities generated by Soapbox, you can delete activities you find to be superfluous.
No. Soapbox is calibrated to generate a sequence and flow of activities with instructions specific to the variables you entered when you set up your presentation (duration, number of attendees, seating set-up, and learning outcomes) and plugs those activities into the Anchor → Content → Application formula. That’s the magic behind Soapbox and its ability to generate 50%-80% of your presentation within 5-10 minutes. Over the years, we have shared many of our activities through the Train Like a Champion blog. Once you try Soapbox we think you’ll see that the change in your work is more meaningful than accessing great activities.
