During this interactive 2-day course, you will be introduced to the four cornerstones of training: methodology, how to setup & structure a course, how to express yourself and how to teach well. The course is designed to help you keep your delegates constantly engaged and make them remember the content through participation and exercises. This course boosts your confidence and authority in the class helping you to keep your delegates ‘glued’ to your course.
Here are common challenges that trainers face when delivering a course:
- How can you make the delegates excited about the topic and keep them engaged throughout the course?
- How can you make the delegates believe that you are the best trainer for them in the field?
- How can you make the delegates remember the contents of the course for years to come?
- How can you deliver a course that doesn’t come across as pre-scripted and is tailored to them?
- How should you structure your course to achieve all of the above while keeping the design easy and adaptable for yourself?
The purpose of this 2-day intensive course is to give you a structured approach to overcome these challenges; it will turn you into a confident, influential trainer that delivers.

"Just wanted to thank you for the most illuminating and well delivered course, thank you. I am in a hotel room in Welwyn as my flight is not till tomorrow. I have 2 days work to catch up with but find myself reading one of your books instead. Your introduction to 'Course Design Strategy' has pulled me in deep, I look forward to reading the rest of it. Many thanks again for your time. Kind Regards."
Practice Makes Perfect
This is an extremely hands-on workshop. Numerous focused exercises have been designed thoughtfully to help you learn and memorise what has been taught during the course and to give you an opportunity to try it out for yourself. By working together with other participants in the course, you can see how each technique is used in practice and how to apply them to your own courses.
A Dynamic Course that Boosts Confidence
