I’ve had the luxury and fun of recently putting together and delivering a Train the Trainer event for an organisation who use Subject Matter Experts to deliver technical info and skills to colleagues. It reminded me of how many tools and techniques we have at our disposal to ensure that any intervention meets clear objectives in an interesting and engaging way. In one day, no one was going to turn into a training expert but we packed in lots of handy hints and tips and helpful practical steps the trainers could use – design methodology, learning styles, accelerated learning, multiple intelligences, tone, pace, body language, visual aids, audience management and delivery feedback. A busy and fun day – with great feedback, so just waiting to hear how it goes in practice !
