We can also cover how a trainer can look, sound and come across to delegates; for instance what is appropriate to wear according to your audience.
The importance of avoiding simple dissemination of information and how not to lose their audience with too much detail and the inevitable 'Death by Powerpoint. Placing the needs of delegates first and how to focus attention on their abilities and engagement rather than their own 'performance.'

How adults learn, different learning styles, understanding Character Type and how to challenge and fairly deal with difficult or resistant delegates with confidence.
