I was delivering my workshop Staple it to their heads – how to make your training stick in Canberra last month and we were discussing memorable messages. The guys from the police training department shared the ‘Don’t touch tilt or tamper’ motto from the bomb squad.
Later in the day we were discussing the challenge of increasing engagement with ‘boring’ topics. One participant was in the process of writing a workshop for harrassment in the workplace when it occurred to me that the ‘Don’t touch tilt or tamper’ slogan could be used. Touch could refer to inappropriate contact, Tilt to teasing and bullying and Tamper to people’s personal space and possessions.
A fabulous staple that is both expressive and memorable.
Staples are everywhere – you only have to look
