How to Facilitate Brilliant Workshops


The Burns Unit TLC






In person or online (sync.)

Course type




We have all taken part in wonderful and inspiring workshops and also workshops that are frustrating and inconclusive. The success or failure of a workshop can often come down to the skills of the Facilitator. But rarely does anybody provide any real guidance on how to facilitate a great and effective workshop.

What are the objectives of this course?

By the end of the session we want delegates to have a tool box of models and templates to help them make the workshops they facilitate more engaging, inspiring and results driven for both internal and external workshops.

Who is this course for?

This course is particularly helpful for Account Handlers and Planners who are keen to facilitate a workshop but are daunted about the idea of doing this in front of colleagues and clients.
