    We will deliver the training to smaller groups and/or in larger rooms. We have been working closely with venues to ensure we have Covid-safety measures and clear guidance in place.

    If for any reason the course cannot be delivered face-to-face, we will take a flexible and responsive approach to keep people learning – which will include delivering the training on the same day as a live interactive online session, or transferring bookings to the next available dates.

    Trainer: Ruth Hallett

    "It was really great to have such a good opportunity to practice what we were being taught in the moment. I also found the ideas and templates for facilitating groups etc. a bonus and all the content very useful. I thought it was excellent and also felt generous with regards to the materials we were given. I will certainly be following up in practice and getting the recommended resources."

    "Seeing Ruth ‘drawing’ the images, having a go at ‘drawing the images’, seeing a few examples of how this could be used to elicit ideas from people. It was really interesting and I could see straight away how my use of flipcharts could be much improved.”

    "Kept us focused on the techniques. Creative and pitched at a level where you don’t need to draw, felt safe to not have to show to others. Liked hearing about how Ruth puts it into practice. I would definitely use these techniques for informal note taking and using a flipchart in training. ”

    "Simple drawings can really add context. Enjoyed the course as I can see how, even as the bad artist that I am, I could be able to draw the required items. Great tips on using all the page in portrait and dotted line down the middle. ”

    "Useful to get some ideas which I can use informally, and if ever I have to do a presentation I’ll be making use of them! ”
