Stonebow, People 1st, Train-The-Trainer. The Art and Science of Being a Magical Trainer
It is always a challenge to prepare a workshop and you always think you have enough knowledge and experience but it is always possible to improve the preparation and organisation. It is a great challenge when you first start to prepare your own workshops while still having very little experience, as it was in my case. The People1st programme offers comprehensive support for more effective preparation and organisation of a workshop. It teaches how to reduce time spent on preparing for a workshop and how to improve the workshop efficiency. The programme was truly valuable to me because it involved very practical learning - we were supposed to demonstrate everything we had learned. Also, I was able to obtain a comprehensive insight in the subject of preparing and leading a workshop from the beginning to the very end, and new techniques and strategies that can be used during workshops were introduced to me. But the most important thing was my realisation that organising a workshop is fun, that you need to believe in what you are doing and in this way, the participants will follow you. Even though others warned me that the programme can be exhausting I did not experience this at all. However, we were very active during the entire week and the hours and days passed by very quickly. The reason why my experience was so positive was largely due to the effort of our trainer who kept motivating us and presenting new knowledge in an extremely interactive and innovative way. It has been a unique experience - positive in every aspect. Thank you for this.
