Free masterclass 16 June > Steal my Booked Out Facilitator framework to land repeatable workshop bookings This week, I'm continuing the momentum from last week's solo episode, and responding to a listener question about how to create momentum and drive word of mouth, so that you can book out more workshops. Here’s the question I received this week:…
 
If you’re running a business these days, you need to have a web presence. You need some kind of home page or landing page where people can find you and find out about you. More importantly, they want to learn how you can help them and how you haved helped people like them. If you are a consultant, a trainer, a coach, a facilitator you need a digita…
 
Today is a solo, just in time episode, on something that I’ve probably been a bit shy in sharing. However, when I’ve been on listening tours, and spoken to you, and even now in my foundation round of my new online program, Booked Out Facilitator, it seems a common challenge I hear is that it’s really hard to decide (and then define) what you actual…
 
Fascinating conversation today with Jonathan Halls author of Confessions of a Corporate Trainer. Jonathan is a Master Trainer and has developed his own models to help facilitate great learning experiences. I asked Jonathan about how we as learning professionals can flip things around from trainer centric learning to learner-centric learning. What d…
 
What I love about my conversation with today’s guest is his knack and ability for jumping in, trying things, being open for the possibilities. I think that’s an incredibly important facilitator skill and he demonstrates it, not only with the way he runs his business and facilitates workshops, but his life as well! My guest today is Jimbo Clark from…

I’ve no crystal ball. Nobody does but that shouldn’t stop us asking which learning trends will be hot in the workplace of the near future Learning Analytics? Learning Platforms? Augmented Reality? Virtual Reality? Social Learning? More importantly for you, we should be asking ourselves how these L&D trends will impact your talent-development busine…
 
This week, we’re talking about a topic that isn’t really talked about, and today’s guest is on a mission to change that.

My guest is Rose Allett, and she is the face behind Start the Conversation. …
 
Most small business owners don’t think of themselves as content producers but today’s guest Joe Pulizzi, author of the bestselling book Content Inc thinks that you should start thinking that way. Strategy is about knowing what people need to read, hear and think so they want to work you and buy from you. It doesn’t matter whether you are a coach, c…
 
This week we’re focusing on two of my favourite things, that I mention on this podcast over and over again (aren’t you lucky!): Unpredictability and Contrast. My guest today, Johnny Quinn from Audience Alive, epitomises both. This is a masterclass episode in how to do things differently in your workshops. I’m not saying that lightly either, literal…
 
When you are running an effectively facilitated remote learning experience, there is all the check-listing beforehand, the technology, the design, the logistics. Sure, you can do that yourself. But is it the most effective use of your time? You might have to look after screen-sharing, comments in the chatroom, polling, breakouts, reactions, late-co…
 
My guest today threw a crazy stat at me in this conversation: 99% of employees want feedback, however 75% of managers don’t like giving feedback. I feel like if you could talk about some of the challenges that are faced in organisations today, you could relate it back to this one statistic. Toady we’re talking about feedback and I’m joined by Beth …

My mother was a teacher. The she became a trainer. She absolutely loved it! And both my grandfathers were teachers. So maybe there is something in my genes which I have inherited that makes me a good trainer and facilitator. One thing is for sure: teaching, training, facilitation are all closely interlinked. Teachers have learned to be great commun…
 
Ooh - how’s this for a first time? It’s the first time we’ve had an L&D detective on the show and he’s here to answer the #1 question that plays on all of our (and our clients’ minds): “How can we measure the results, and the ROI of our workshops?” Known in the global learning and development (L&D) community as “the L&D detective,” Kevin M. Yates a…

Hadiya is a storytelling expert and speaks at national conferences on learning and development topics, specifically storytelling for facilitators and quality control & ass…
 
Your workshops are amazing: So amazing that you’ve been asked to share your expertise in a keynote presentation!

That’s the topic I explore today, where I share actionable tips on how I prepare for a keynote speech. S…
 
Have you ever asked your audience how they rate your ability to listen to them? Are you conscious of your ability to listen critically? It’s tempting to do all the speaking as a trainer or facilitator, isn’t it? Often the best feedback I am given is not based upon something that’s come out of my mouth. It’s because I’ve created an environment where…
 
Energy is the most important thing when it comes to your workshops, and I discovered this nice and early when I geeked out on an energetic conversation with today’s guest, Dana James-Edwards.

As trainers, coaches and facilitators, we do what we love to do! I have always thought of training as a privilege. Do you agree? You help people to be the best that they can be and you do this through your programs and workshops. But you don’t do it purely because you love it. You train and coach because it makes you money. It’s your business, righ…

Here’s the scenario: You’re working with some new clients, and they haven’t used Zoom before. You pull together some slides, videos and helpful pointers and send them these beforehand. During the session, you dedicate the first few minutes to sharing features, and getting them to feel comfortable using Zoom. You’re happy with what you’ve created bu…
 
Do you every draw when facilitating OR maybe you get your delegates to draw ? How are your artistic skills? My drawing skills are not the greatest but that’s no excuse not to draw. As qualified facilitators, we know that adults need visual information to learn. infographics, charts, mindmaps, sticky notes, wordclouds: these are all visual tools. Yo…
 
“It’s mandatory” - I hear those words, and I involuntarily shudder. Is that what we want our participants feeling before they arrive to our workshops? No! We really can’t control whether someone decides to come along to our workshop, or not, however we can absolutely do our best to influence whether someone wants to come along, and how they feel ab…
 
Businesses now have different expectations of training delivery. Before the pandemic, your clients were happy to pay you to spend a day or a half-day on site with their people, right? But you now have to deliver a training and facilitation experience under a completely different set of circumstances. You and everyone else is behind a laptop screen …
 
When did I realise I loved talking about group dynamics? When I was 16, at a netball camp, we did a team-building high ropes course together. Btw - I hate high ropes, but I loved the debriefing part afterwards! The reason I share this, is because this week’s guest Phil Brown works for an adventure company called High 5 Adventure, and he joined the …
