We know, as learners, that our best experiences are those that were fun, engaging and bang on point.

Get them onside by exploring why they are there, what identity you are connecting to, what's REALLY in it for them, and how are they aspiring to use your material.

Chunk and sequence your content in a way that works with the neurology of your audience. Make it easy for them to take on your ideas.

Give participants the time to practice and experiment with your material to internalise the concepts and have a solid reference experience.

Give space for participants to share what they have learned or experienced and ask questions to help them generalise and contextualise the content.

This is EXACTLY what I need!

See you in Sydney! 23-24 July.

It's McAwesome!

I have had the incredible privilege of working with Donna and have been completely floored, not just by her incredible expertise, but by the effortless way in which she delivers it. 
Having done her Engaging Training program and being thoroughly impressed I asked Donna to come in and facilitate a session for one of my clients. My client came back a few days later to comment on the 'unsolicited praise' that participants had given for Donna's work. 
Whether you need a professional trainer/facilitator or whether you want to become a better one yourself, I wholeheartedly recommend Donna McAwesome!
