I have just about completed an intensive series of face to face training events for 3 separate clients, and I have emerged as enthusiastic as ever about the fantastic opportunity and privilege to motivate and inspire people, which such training provides. Yes, the office at home is now littered with props, handouts, course books etc. and the computer is holding numerous new powerpoints!
I remember my first ever training session presentation, to my first (and only) girlfriend’s human biology ‘O’ level group (adult learning group!) – “The work of the EHO”. When I look back, I cringe at how awful it must have been, with 125 35mm slides in two hours! At that point I was determined to get better at this, and undertook a life-changing teacher training course. And the rest is history! Although I must have got something right on that first session, as we ended up married!
What whetted my appetite was the chance to educate others about the world of environmental health, and how they too can play their part. Since then I have delivered hundreds of sessions and presentations, learning from positive and constructive feedback, (and a few negative comments!), training almost 3,000 learners along the way to achieve a CIEH qualification. And I still feel as enthused as I did on that very first session, if a lot less frightened!
So, I am now starting a series of “lessons learned” from my training experience, and I would love to include yours too! Just send me a brief outline of the lesson learned as a trainer, from your own real life experience, and I will be delighted to publish it here. I am happy if you want it to be anonymous, or your initials only.

Finally, PLEASE share this with any of your training colleagues and ask them to sign up on the website so they get these blogs too. The more hits I get, the more blogs I write!!!
