Feedback from past participants:

I can’t echo enough how great and resourceful this TTT has been. Between the abundance of material, hearing people share on the Q and As and the delivery through instruction over the 4 webinars I feel good about what has come from this and the support that is available should I need any further in preparing to deliver workshops this year.

I think the homework after the webinar was extremely useful. It helped digest the information in our own way.

The most useful part of the training was the practical and “real” stories provided by Françoise which brought the reality of delivering the workshops to life.

It is rare to be able to sit, listen, and digest new material. The webinar provided me with a thoughtful opportunity to have a focused session, go away and read, and then (in a graduated fashion) demonstrate my learning. The workload was as described in the first session and was appropriate.

I found the ideas for needs assessment, and the appropriate emphasis on knowing your audience, as well as the suggestions for having healthy living demonstrations.  I would actually like to develop a workshop that would allow participants to spend a day sampling various activities.

This training was excellent; I feel way more confident than I did at the beginning in my ability to deliver a decent workshop!
