At some point in your life you will have attended a workshop, but what happens when you are asked to deliver one? Some people relish the opportunity while others are scared by it. Whatever you feel about public speaking, it is a skill that is admired by many.
This hands-on three-day workshop will help you plan, perform and analyse your workshop. With the trainer, you will be practising the workshop you have been asked to deliver, making the learning real and giving you the chance to practice.
This workshop will help you:
- Understand the difference between trainer and facilitator
- Learn key questioning skills
- Discover ways of planning and designing workshops
- Know your audience
- Develop your own presentation style
- Understand and manage group dynamics
- Analyse how the presentation is going
- Effectively evaluate your performance once it is over
- Learn what to do next
Above all, this programme will help you put theory into practice.
Public speaking skills are important for everyone. This workshop is for those who wish to develop their skills, and is especially designed for people with little or no experience in running workshops.
This three-day course is based on a series of short theory and good practice facilitator-led sessions followed up by personal practice. Group discussions are frequently used to identify personal experiences of good and bad facilitation. Expert trainer feedback enables participants to develop workable personal action plans for improved confidence and delivery.
Note: before attending the workshop, you should seek feedback on your communication style from five people. You should ask each person to identify:
- Two things you do well when communicating with that person
- Two things you need to do differently when communicating with that person, in order to enhance the relationship
