We can rapidly reuse elements from previous sessions to create new agendas. Coupled with the fact that SessionLab gives us a central library of immersive activities that I can reuse in my sessions, it’s potentially a 60% time savings for the preparation of similar session formats.

Since we have a remote trainer team, it was difficult to discuss agendas in virtual meetings. I also was frustrated with always having to calculate timeframes. It was difficult to change agendas onsite and plan time schedules. SessionLab changed it for the better.
