is a distributor of the Zing team meeting and learning platform
and develops titles for authors that make best use of the technology
for their needs. The system is fully customisable including on-screen
language, check lists, methods and software tools. The Facilitators
training manual has been modularised so it is easy for an author
to create their own manual incorporating the standard Zing training
methods. The first two sections of the Manual are Standard Zing
fare, and the third section contains the authors methods.

The Zing difference
Zing systems help groups become top performing teams, make sense
out of complex or rapidly changing situations and win agreement
for immediate collective action. Anyone can facilitate Zing meetings.
They are: * Fast. Five times faster than conventional meetings.
A day long conference can be completed in 1-2 hours * Creative.
People generate hundreds of useful ideas, then combine the ideas
to create fantastic ideas. * Enjoyable. Everyone gets really
involved and has a good experience, unlike most meetings where
people bully, ignore, manipulate or dominate others. * Powerful.
People quickly change from being disorganised groups into top-performing
teams. * Value creating. New reliable knowledge is created
that is vital for the organisation and its people. * Rewarding.
People reach radical but similar conclusions despite their differences.
It is win-win all the way. * Inspiring. People become committed
more readily to take action
often bold, new ideas better
aligned with global trends.
