Have you ever been asked to develop a training class? Or asked to lead a requirements-gathering sessions or design meeting? Perhaps you considered submitting a proposal to conduct a workshop at a conference, but didn’t know where to start.

Attend this workshop and learn how to plan and run effective workshops. We’ll start with a discussion of the differences between workshops and training, characteristics of successful workshops, and strategies for activity and workshop development. Then, we will break into small groups to work through the steps of building a workshop.

You’ll leave this session with the experience of having developed a workshop, as well as a workbook, templates, and techniques you can use the next time a manager or client asks you to build a workshop.

Chris is also giving a presentation at TCUK18: The Successful Fraud.
