      "I found the course was suitably tailored to assist personnel with limited or no facilitation experience. Helen's insight and experience helped participants gain a better understanding of the role of facilitator and introduced activities that will undoubtedly assist facilitator to meet Objectives. Thanks Helen I found course extremely beneficial." - Royal Australian Air Force

       

      "Our trainer was excellent. She tailored the day to our particular needs, and she was very flexible - allowing us extra time to discuss issues of most relevance to us. She was engaging and very adept at making people feel very comfortable talking about themselves and issues in a way that work colleagues might find difficult ordinarily. I cannot recommend her highly enough as a trainer." - Department of Environment and Resource Management

       

      "All of the content was very valuable however I think the part that stands out most was the structure of how to facilitate and the reasons behind getting to know your participants. the profiling also was invaluable and how the facilitate to a certain type of audience was very interesting. I also like some of the theories behind why do things in a certain way depending on the personalities within the group. Thank you." - Flourish Australia
