What you’ll learn in this facilitation training:

This one-day facilitation training masterclass is interactive and practical. It’s both for complete beginners and for those who want to refresh their workshop facilitation skills.

People that have attended the “Effective Workshops” facilitation training in the past include UX designers and consultants, business analysts, innovation managers, design leads, content strategists, digital strategists, and creative directors.

The day covers tools and techniques that you can start using straight away, the knowledge and best practices that engage and motivate teams for creativity and innovation and the exact tried-and-tested methods that I use with my clients to produce high-quality ideas, get clear insights and help them make significant progress.

It was fantastic to be surrounded by inspirational people, facilitated brilliantly by Alison, where we could share our experiences, learn from each other and understand how to improve our craft simply and practically, through the wealth of experience and tips Alison shared with us. Don’t think about doing this course, just do it!
