“Meetings and workshops are most effective when someone is looking out for the process and the people involved in them. A facilitator needs to appreciate the range of structures and techniques to apply them. Being able to handle difficult situations is also key. In this seminar you will have a chance to observe and practice key facilitating skills through hands-on activities.”
