What makes a memorable workshop?

Having facilitated hundreds of workshops, 

here are the answers I hear most.

                                                

  • "Subject matter related to my job"

  • "Incorporated humor and laughter"

  • "Encouraged my participation and group discussion"

  • "Facilitator displayed knowledge & expertise"

  • "I'm motivated to apply what I learned"

My facilitation style is interactive, energetic and Socratic.  People retain more through

discussion & reflection, note taking & journaling and applying what they learn.
