Master Executive and Systemic Leadership Team Coach
Before joining I used to spend hours searching for exactly the right activity to enhance the learning of the various teams I work with. Being a member means I have access to an amazing set of tools and activities - there is something to fit almost any purpose here! The biggest benefit for me is in having such a large resource of tools, all categorized and easy to find, on one platform.
Certified Leadership Coach, Behavior Consultant
Your material is clean, simple to follow, relevant, and well-laid out. It is hard to find plug-and-play content that is useful and easy to integrate into virtually any program. Great job Workshop Bank!
Certified Health Coach
I've truly found WorkshopBank to be of great value. The activities / workshops we've done with our offices have been great. It got to the point that they couldn't wait for the next seminar to see what I had up my sleeve for them. Thank you for all your help.
Senior HR Partner
Your products give access to ready made tools that have been tried and tested, cover a wide variety of topics, are done in an engaging way and there is an added bonus that you follow up and send me new material……. Which enables be to learn new approaches.
Organization Development Director
Sometimes the time constraints are tight, and I need a wonderful activity, and quite frankly, don’t have the time to create that AND build-out the Learning / Training components. Your excellent materials help me a lot.
Senior Technology Manager
The great thing about what you've done is put all these techniques in one place & curated them by topic, outcome & time. It's really helpful - thank you.
Before joining I used to spend a lot of time planning a workshop. Being a member has meant I've been able to save time and deliver a better experience for my clients. As an independent project director, the workshops I'm called on to facilitate can be quite varied. I subscribed with two goals in mind -- saving prep time and making my events better for my clients. The resources on the site are well organized and definite time-savers, and between the training videos and Nick's one-on-one guidance, my clients are definitely getting a better experience.
Leadership & collaboration expert helping organizations tackle complex challenges in Latin America
While I have a lot of experience doing workshops and I have a framework, mine wasn't as comprehensive as Nick's. The way he really baked into it the sustainable elements of it has been helping me think about how to do that for my own. I also have access to other facilitation tools but I'm always looking for variations and new ones and I like having all of them systematized in one place.
Coach & Facilitator
I used to spend hours planning my workshops - I wanted the process to be JUST right and sometimes would get stuck in a spin. Being a member means I'm able to draw from more tools to enhance my client experience. Plus I feel like part of a great community of facilitators. The biggest benefit of membership for me is the instant support I received from Nick, and I love the overview index sheet that shows you exactly where you need to head for the outcome you want to achieve.
Before I joined the WorkshopBank I would spend forever searching for the right tools and process to help me facilitate my sessions - it was such a pain and such a waste of time. This membership now means I have everything I need at hand 1 click away and some extra bonuses I didn't expect but appreciate. Don't hesitate joining it is a win-win. You won't regret it for one moment - it's all there waiting for you. You just have to make a small investment and it's there forever.
Anton de Leeuw
Managing Director at Salus Group Limited
Becoming a member gives me access to a complete online library of easy to adopt and brand templates and most importantly access to one-to-one sessions with Nick. What you see is true. What you read is true. Everything is laid out and works just as Nick describes and includes more information than I expected. Before joining I would question the source of information and concern myself with not having an oversight over all possible resources. I also concerned myself the approach was suitable for the industry.
Professional Development Coordinator at Appalachian State University
I have used your resources in my work with various departments, and they have always found the activities meaningful, which is why I decided to become a member. This is an awesome resource!
CIPD Qualified HR Consultant
I have achieved so much new learning from your exciting tools. Thank you.
Team Excellence & Engagement Leader
I work with many leadership teams around the globe and I am always looking for new ideas to make them more effective. I find your material and site very useful.
Clear, simple and infinitely adaptable... thanks so much for sharing these incredibly useful resources for the benefit of so many.
District Manager at Sodexo
I used the Prioritization Matrix in a Global Sr Leader strategy session. The feedback was positively overwhelming and gave me visibility with these global leaders. I just followed the blueprint. Thank You - WorkshopBank!
Visual Facilitator, Coach, Trainer
I wanted to give you some positive feedback about your Think, Feel, Say, Do activity. I used it as an agenda setting exercise “live” in a group of 6 University Staff (Academics and Administrators). It worked brilliantly. I simply facilitated the process about their priorities, their preferred agenda, their preferred approach, roles and timeframes. The end result was that they felt extremely proud of their collaboration and co-creation as a team who had previously “been at war” with each other. So a huge thank you from me.
Leadership & Management Program Developer
The way you present your workshops makes it easy to implement and offer some great solutions to our learners/ teams and managers. Wonderful work. Thank you
Dr Pari Namazie
Organizational & Leadership Development Coach and Facilitator
It is one of the best investments I have made, giving me access to a wide tried and tested facilitator's tool kit, excellent exercises, great customer/member support, plus new tools and resources being added frequently.
The uniqueness about WorkshopBank is Nick helps you from the start of your workshop to the end of it. There is a vast range of technical tools which are so helpful to any organisation wanting to improve their results. As a facilitator/trainer you will stand out from the rest.
Business Advisor - Revenue Development
The content you provide is nothing short of excellent. I’ve examined a lot of it and also bought membership for ongoing use.
Business and Sports Development Consultant
I used to spend a lot of time searching for facilitation tools. Trying to find the right content for workshops and transferring the information to powerpoint slides. Being a member means I'm able to find relevant and useful tools and techniques for my workshops which saves time and improves outcomes for my clients. When I have a challenging workshop I schedule a call with Nick who provides brilliant support, signposting me to the most suitable resources. The biggest benefit of membership for me is access to tools and techniques that help me to a better job for your clients. Access to insightful thinking and signposting to the right tools to help you do the job. Cutting edge resources and tools saving you time and enhancing your capability.
Rachel L. Moore
Owner at Moore Productive LLC
Before joining, I used to develop all my workshop and team facilitation tools myself. And because I'm very picky about the way my work looks and the results it yields, I spent hours on each deck I prepared. As a member, I have access to tools and processes focused on all the key aspects of facilitation and team building that are ready to use and I can put my company logo on them. And I've found tools here that I didn't even know I needed. Everything I've used has yielded great results and saved me many hours of work! I've been a member of WorkshopBank since early after launch and I've seen the growth and the deep focus on customers. I know Nick will continue this growth and he continually surprises and delights his clients. Also, I've shared WorkshopBank with many of my colleagues and they've all loved it as much as I do. Don't hesitate! You'll be glad you joined.
Transformation Expert at Ministry of Economic Affairs & Climate
Before joining I had to combine several sources for information on facilitation and change management. Now I’m able to find detailed methods and techniques quickly, and in different formats. Being part of a growing community of professionals is a big advantage.
President at The Gregg Resource Group, LLC
I've been using your materials with great success over the past year and have been very impressed. When I saw the membership I knew it would be so valuable that I had to join!

Brainstorm effectively with small and large groups
When people feel are part of a team working towards a common goal, it improves morale and sense of belonging. Brainstorming sessions help to foster this sense of teamwork and collaboration.
Co-create strategies & plans with key stakeholders
When plans and strategies are co-created, everyone has the opportunity to contribute their ideas and perspectives. This leads to increased buy-in and commitment because everyone has a stake in its success.
Solve problems & achieve consensus on solutions
When people with different backgrounds, experiences, and areas of expertise work together to solve a problem, they bring a variety of perspectives to the table. This leads to more creative and effective solutions than if the problem was tackled alone.
Manage disruptors & resistors
Work effectively with uncooperative & dysfunctional people and turn them into your most influential advocates.
Workshops proven to work in any niche or industry
These processes are proven to work every niche, industry and sector (public, private and not-for-profit).
Workshop Objectives & Outcomes
When everyone has a chance to contribute to the decision-making process and the group reaches a consensus, everyone is more likely to be committed to decisions and work towards their success.
Plans & Strategies
Co-creating plans allow people to bring their diverse experiences and ideas to the table. This leads to more creative and innovative solutions than if the plan had been created by 1 person or a small group.
Our brainstorming processes allow groups to generate a large number of ideas in a short amount of time. This can be especially helpful when trying to come up with solutions to complex problems.
Improve Team Results
Use these processes to create opportunities for people to collaborate and work together. This leads to more innovative solutions and better results than working in isolation.
Motivated people are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs and feel fulfilled by their work. This leads to higher retention rates and a more positive work environment.
Key stakeholders have expectations and demands that need to be managed. By influencing them early and often, you help to set realistic expectations and ensure that everyone is on the same page.
Reaching consensus helps to reduce conflict because everyone is on the same page and working towards a common goal. This leads to a more positive and productive work environment.
With these processes people come up with ideas they wouldn't have thought of on their own, or build on each other's ideas to create something new and innovative.
When team members collaborate effectively, they share knowledge and skills, delegate tasks, and work together towards common goals. This leads to increased efficiency and productivity, which can benefits the group as a whole.

Executive Director at MeetingSphere
I've been a subscriber for a while and find the accessibility and convenience of WorkshopBank brilliant.
Who, specifically, is this library of tools for?
If you ever run workshops this library of tools and processes is for you because it will save you lots of time. Before joining our members used to spend hours planning workshops and often get stuck in a spin. Being a member means you'll be able to draw from tools that are proven to get the results you need.
Who should NOT buy this resource library?
If you already have lots of tools you are comfortable with and you aren't willing to learn new ones, this library is probably not for you.
Included are the best tools & processes I've collected in my consulting work. To create this library, I went back over the 1000 workshops I've run the last 25 years. I analyzed a mountain of feedback from the WorkshopBank community (260,000+ people) to discover the strategies and insights that create a successful workshop. I pulled together every tip, trick and strategy I've ever used.
Included in this library is everything you need to be successful when you work with groups in workshop situations.
How can I trust you? How do I know this is legit?
My name is Nick Martin. I'm a consultant and facilitator who has built WorkshopBank.com from scratch to more than 260,000 subscribers since 2009. All through word of mouth.
You absolutely do not have to listen to me, but running workshops that get incredible results has been one of the greatest things I've ever done in my career. I think the most compelling evidence I have are the comments people have left on workshopbank.com and the emails they have sent me over the years. Some of which you can read on this page.
But my industry is different! I don't believe this can work!
Over the last 14 years more than 11,000 people have downloaded tools & activities from WorkshopBank and have used them successfully work with groups in schools, churches, hospitals, banks, real-estate agents, travel agents, startups, pharma, hotels, engineering, shipping, textiles, utility companies, and everyone in between. These tools don't discriminate. They work on people. People who enjoy exciting and challenging group work.
Does the tool library come with email or call support?
No, the library is designed to be self-guided and self-paced. With more than 11,000 members, we cannot provide free 1:1 support via email or calls although there is an opportunity to purchase a 1-to-1 video consult with me for a discounted rate when you sign-up.
How long is the course and what format is it in?
There are just over 50 tools & processes in the library. Each tool comes with a video taking you through the process in detail, download links for the unbranded PowerPoint, Apple Keynote and PDF files, and a text based description of how the tool works and when to use it. You can access the resources from any device with an internet connection.
Can you provide a custom invoice?
Yes! Please just ask for a custom receipt if the one you receive automatically on purchase isn't sufficient.
Do I get lifetime access?
Yes absolutely. You can access it for as long as you like and you even get new tools & activities we add from time to time for no extra payment.
Ok. What do I do next if I want to join?
