Julliet, the manager of the Smokey Tour Project, asked me to give a training, together with a local guy. We met and thought about what was most important to share with the old and new tourleaders. We divided the subject and made both our own powerpoints, Andrew bundled them together and did the finishing touch. Such a great guy to cooperate with!
When you give a training like this, preparation is very important. You need to know to whom you're speaking and need to create an ambiance that gives them (the tourleaders) confindence. Confidence during the training, but also confidence in themselves.
