Education experts throughout the world refer to the five senses as “learning modalities.” They are the secret pathways to a superior learning experience. Learning takes place at many levels and invigorates all the senses, essential to retaining information during the learning process With the assistance of Rivers Edge Catering, we can provide stimulation to the senses of smell and taste. The senses of touch, sight and hearing aspects of your presentation are in your hands. It is important to remember that individuals learn differently when it comes to vision, sound and touch.
When combined, the following tips will create a measurably successful “Lunch and Learns” (L&L) that will have your peers paying attention and your customers ready to buy your products. Keep in mind, for most of your guests, this is their personal time, as many are not paid for their lunch break and must consider it worthwhile to capture their full attention. The catering that you provide from Rivers Edge will significantly add value to the time these people are generously donating to hear you speak. At each of these Lunch and Learns, you can survey them on the next L&L topics that you are considering to always have a fresh idea of what is going to grab their attention for the future.
Our hot food buffets work especially well for these types of presentations. Schedule Rivers Edge to arrive 15 minutes before the meeting starts, especially if you are ordering hot food. Not so much to allow time for set up, but to allow the sense of SMELL to start working which is the first sensory encounter. The sense of smell connects directly to long-term memory. The TASTE of Rivers Edge delicious cuisine supplies swift attainment of information in addition to calories. The greatest factor, as with smell, is to create a concrete and judicious association between a taste and what we want to combine cognitively, emotionally and inventively.
