I believe that learning is a two-way process: the more I deliver training, the more I learn from the insights and experiences of the course delegates, and the more I grow as both a practitioner and a trainer.

We are constantly learning but for a ‘formal’ learning experience to be meaningful it must first and foremost be engaging and relevant for all concerned, therefore relating our learning activity to the real world is essential. Course delegates have a right to expect something credible and authentic, due to this I won’t attempt to train people in an area where I haven’t achieved some level of mastery.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the learning experience should be an enjoyable one. If we approach any learning experience with an open mind then not only can we grow, but we can have some fun along the way!
