''I have learnt that the main thing is to care about what you are saying because once you do then you can tell people about it easier and you don't worry so much about making mistakes." Public Library Staff.
"Being prepared takes away the nerves!" School Librarian.
"I wanted to thank you for delivering the excellent training session "Getting the Whole School Reading". I followed your advice and planned, evaluated and provided evidence for all my reading development and promotional activities. I then had a meeting about this with the school's Senior Leadership Team. The meeting went well and when it was announced, at short notice, that the school was to have an Ofsted Survey Inspection for Literacy I was included in a meeting with the Inspector and the Library was observed. Thank goodness I had already prepared most of my impact, evaluation and evidence file. I presented the Inspector with an enhanced file containing current activities and ones that were at the planning stage. He was suitably impressed! The Inspector sent a report to the Head with the following remarks about the Library: "The outstanding leadership of the exciting library provision successfully encourages the students to read frequently. A memorable highlight of the visit was the very enthusiastic way the students talked about their personal reading." Thanks again, Jerry." Secondary School Librarian.
"Giving a good impression of yourself makes all the difference!" Museum Staff.
"An incredibly useful day. Thank you!" Public Library Staff.
"I'm going to go back and put into practice all I have learnt." School Librarian.
sheer enthusiasm is worth its weight in gold. You made every aspect
of the training relevant & appropriate to the specific audience.
Your relaxed approach encouraged participation, even from those who
admitted they were very unsure of themselves. Your sessions feel like
learning from a trusted friend - anecdotes & real experience mix
well with the hard messages & guidelines. Overall two things that
make you so effective as a trainer:
Presentation skills: developing confidence, enhancing personal impact / Training the trainer: the practical essentials of training and facilitation. Providing the confidence and techniques to prepare and deliver presentations or training in a range of settings.
