  • Ask the volunteer to say 2 or 3 sentences about it.
  • Show the next image in series A.
  • Ask the same volunteer to say another 2 or 3 sentences while connecting this to what he has been stated already.
  • Continue with the third image until the volunteer has created a story out of the three images.
  • Allocate about 3 minutes for each delegate.
  • Move on to series B and show then to the next delegate.
  • Continue with other delegates until all have delivered a story.
  • At the end, ask delegates to vote for the best story and explain why they think it is the best.

And at the end of the session, you can ask the participants to connect story A with story B.
That will show the negotiation ability.
