4MAT as a “common language" at Weber
At Weber we have, since 2008, used 4MAT to support us in the development for a successful business with excited employees, great job satisfaction and team spirit. 4MAT gives us the tools to seek the best possible way to communicate with different types of people who has to work together every day - Both internally and externally.

The 4MAT MTD course was an eye opener for me!
After more than 10 years experience of teaching in my field, it was a gift to learn about the natural learning circle as a concrete, useful training tool. The 3 day course was facilitated with a really good flow between theory, group discussions and time to work hands-on with my upcoming training materials, which was tested already 4 days later with success! The follow-up after the course is thorough, and makes it even more professional. If you need to boost your teaching with brain-friendly structures, I would highly recommend Hanne and 4MAT Denmark as a platform.

The brain and learning
In the 4MAT system there is many possible ways to teach, according to how the brain learns.
The codeword is “from sensing/experiencing to knowledge”. That is the core on how the brain learns - and the core in the 4MAT system.

The method for an effective learning process
I can warmly recommend the 4MAT education and method. At my job at ‘Falck’, I am the head of education and educational responsible, and I use 4MAT daily.
Both in planning and working with education, and in personal connections the method gives understanding and insight. 4MAT’s wheel and intuitive structure gives you leadership skills and therefor good contact with your employees, customers or people in general. A good investment.

4MAT - the pedagogical concept at The Poul Due Jensen Academy, Grundfos
At Grundfos' corporate academy, The Poul Due Jensen Academy, we offer training to the global Grundfos organization. Our classes have participants from different countries, and hence we train groups with mixed nationalities and cultures. 4MAT has proven to be a simple and at the same time an effective tool to design and deliver our training. Apart from learning styles, learning cycle and hemisphere preferences, the model has shown to be one of the reasons why we are able to reach all participants despite cultural differences.
4MAT is also part of our internal Grundfos Trainer Course, where global trainers / colleagues are introduced to the model and theory and learn how to design own training according to it. This way, we are globally introducing 4MAT as our pedagogical concept.

Trust - insight - 4MAT...
At Brejning boarding school we use trust and insight in our approach for teaching. That means that our teachers translate their freedom of methodology into responsibility for their own learning in the students, by trusting that insight to didactics and student´s motivation will kick out from teacher´s professionalism. We chose to use 4MAT as one of the tools that all employees are certified in. When you work with gourmet, outdoors, adventure, innovation, wellness and project management then it is the utmost important to have a common academic language and a common reference frame. 4MAT gives all of this to all employees.

Better build and higher quality
I also work with other measuring tools, for example MBTI and Hogan Assesment Systems, which is more advanced than 4MAT. It is exactly because 4MAT is so simple to understand and can be used as a process method that makes it so interesting. To have the 4MAT model under the skin does that my meetings, presentations and documents has a better structure and therefor a higher quality.

4MAT Mastering Training Design - Ready to use 4MAT in my daily life
Big thanks to Hanne and About Learning for a great and rewarding course. Hanne is a fantastically inspiring and knowledgable facilitator who takes her own 4MAT medicine.
The contents and structure of the course made it so easy to me to go home and use 4MAT in my daily life. Not only in teaching but also to whole day meetings, workshops, kickoffs and etc. My recent acquired 4MAT knowledge was already so well implemented that I the day after the course restructured one of my own courses using 4MAT.
Together with a college, which back then didn’t know anything about this method, we broke down the course and then used 4MAT to design it again. The results? We have now “cracked the code” and have made an even better course, I can only give my warmest recommendation to 4MAT and Hanne - I have now signed myself into “the cult”.

We have had more employees on a 4MAT course and we are experiencing that the tool is immediately lifting our internal as well as external presentation to a new and higher level. We can only recommend Hanne Houbak and 4MAT to other companies who wants to become even better at conveying their knowledge to customers.
