Effective Group Facilitation
This two-day workshop will consider how groups work, different types of groups, how to draw out ideas and insights from the group, observing and analysing behaviours, and managing difficult groups.
It has been designed for anyone who wishes to hold a structured event or series of events for a fixed number of people. Experience can be from zero to a few years. This workshop looks at the preparation, structure and useful ways to engage people, as well as how to handle difficult behaviour.

Group Learning Events
If you have five or more learners, a private group event could be cheaper.
