Congratulations to our community members Jacquie and Denise. Their new and interesting book Strategic Play: The Creative Facilitator’s Guide is now available for order via Amazon.
Introduction from the book publishers.
Jacqueline Lloyd Smith and Denise Meyerson collectively have over 50 years’ global experience in the design and delivery of incredible learning experiences for clients in the private and public sectors. They have partnered with top tier, medium size, and small corporate clients to produce events that rock. They are now opening their files to other facilitators, and educators—of all levels—to share tools and techniques they have personally tested and used.
They are generously allowing you to benefit from their years of experience in the training, facilitation, and design space so you too are able to prepare, structure, and implement teachable moments, workshops, events, training days, learning experiences, offsites, and seminars that have a strong impact—and are memorable. Dip into this essential guide after you have been briefed by the executive team, managers, or human resource professionals and you are required to deliver a face-to-face session for anything between 1 and 100 hours. Play with these practical, user-friendly techniques to help your participants feel engaged and energized, so they will remember the key messages long after the event. Redesign and restructure the tools to suit your audience and the topic so the session remains vibrant and focused. Create experiences for any topic, whether for technical, personal, or professional development purposes.
Not only do you have access to great openers and closers to activate thinking, we also provide you with a roadmap and overall layout so you have examples of how to structure your sessions.
