These tools are fun and if people are enjoying themselves they will learn and engage freely. But it’s not all fun and games; our tools are serious strategies designed to get at the heart of any discussion, highlight key points and focus in on what your whole session is ultimately targeting.

If you have undertaken a “Maximise Your Training Impact” seminar with Laurie, then you should definitely consider taking Eric’s “Creating the Thinking Environment” workshop to add even more fun and practical tools to your “toolkit”.

Our presenter will demonstrate how you, as a Facilitator, can move from “showing” the group to “guiding” it gently to its conclusive result. We can show you how to turn the volume down on the more vocal members of the groups and how to get at the knowledge and ideas of the more timid of your participants.

And all while they are doing all the work and you are enjoying your coffee!
