What does it take to be an effective trainer?  How can you get the best out of yourself – and those you’re training?  Join Jamie Jauncey and Ruth Kirkpatrick to look at best practice approaches, your own training style and practical tools to help you deliver engaging and meaningful storytelling training. This day-long course is relevant to experienced storytellers who want to develop their abilities as a training facilitator, and anyone else who wants a fresh approach to delivering training events.
