Our research shows that successful facilitators have presence, but what does that mean? This practical program will clarify the meaning and benefits of presence.

The ‘inner you’ and ‘outer you’ of presence will be explained and detractors of presence examined. The workshop covers specific techniques for increasing your presence as a facilitator.

To achieve this requires a solid understanding of practical design techniques that can be used when formally developing training programs and to ‘design on the run’. The latter is especially important since every facilitator needs design skills.

Presence is more than just being there.

10 CPD Hours

This program consist of four phases:

Phase 1: READY 
This phase comprises one or two simple preparation activities to help focus your initial learning and subsequent application.

Phase 2: SET
The 4.5 hour workshop will provide you with practical, research-based concepts and principles to enhance your knowledge and skills.

Phase 3: GO
Transfer of learning is essential to continue the learning process and obtain maximum benefits from the program.

This phase covers your application and exploration of the know-how gained during the workshop and concludes when you commence Phase 4.

Phase 4: SHOW
In order to complete the program and receive a Certificate of Achievement, you need to submit an achievement story.

This simply involves answering four questions about the learning you applied and what you gained from the experience.
