Peak District National Park Authority logoPeak District National Park Authority Facilitation Skills Training

Client: Peak District National Park Authority

Description: Ran a daylong course exploring what makes a good (and bad!) facilitator; introducing a range of facilitation tools, techniques and event planning ideas.

Quote: “I really don’t have any suggestions [for improvement] the day was relevant, pacey and delivered to a very high standard. Obviously the main subject was facilitation, however I noticed that some of the new skills I gained during the training session could help me in other areas of work too e.g. organisational skills, general good event planning and maximising input from others. I’ve noticed that some of my colleagues are drawing some of the ideology and practical suggestions you imparted during the training, this is surely the greatest indicator of a successful course?”
