There’s something about gathering a room full of people to dig deep into a shared interest or issue.
Whether you’re topic is on working or living with young people, I’ve got the goods.
I like workshops to be inclusive and involve movement. There’s so much wisdom in a room that its’ a shame to waste that, so I always build in some audience participation.
And I like to have fun. Training should be enjoyable and leave you feeling refreshed. Especially when you’re paying money and giving up precious time.
A bit about me
Having spent the last eight years training people, I’ve learned a few things about equipping adult learners.
And my experiences in working with young people and families gives me plenty of examples to draw on to help explain concepts. I like nothing better than helping people understand the theory beneath what they’re doing. Or introducing new ways of working that get the teens and tweens of the 21st Century interested and engaged.
