Imagine that you had to teach you audience something new, and excite them to actually use the knowledge and skills in practice, because you know that this will help to them work more efficiently, achieve better results, and cooperate more closely. What do you need to become a good lecturer? How do you motivate people and convince them that they should use your recommendations, instructions, know-how and skills because it is to their benefit?
Imagine yourself organising a short seminar or a workshop. How can you make sure that the audience will actively participate in it? Perhaps you would like to become a competent moderator sailing effortlessly through seminars and similar events? What moderation tools and teaching methods will help you?
Or think about this one – presenting business results in a meeting, informing your audience about your work and achievements. How do you decide what to include and what to leave out? And how do you present useful information in an interesting way?

The workshop is organised in person or on-line using various platforms (Zoom, MS Teams). The number of hours per meeting is determined by agreement with the customer.
Workshops and training sessions consist of: short input sessions, discussions, individual, pair, and group work.
The techniques I employ aim to encourage participants to immediately apply what they have learned to their daily routine.
Our basic programmes comprise 16 academic hours, while shorter programmes last 8 academic hours (these programmes involve fewer exercises and practical examples). We recommend a minimum of 24 academic hours if you seek to train your employees thoroughly.
The recommended number of participants per workshop is 20; and 10 per training. The client may, of course, opt for a larger number of participants. In this case, a training session becomes a workshop, and a workshop becomes a seminar/lecture (over 25 participants).
The prices of workshops, training sessions, seminars/lectures depend on their duration, the number of participants, and additional preparation time (i.e., analysing participants’ level of proficiency, designing customised solutions, etc.). The final price is always agreed upon in advance with the client.
