What I Offer


I have sat in too many meetings where “training” was proposed as a solution to a problem, which led of course to a group session, a workshop or a course of some kind.

But training might not fix the problem. Group training cannot address individual issues, which are often at the heart of difficulties in the workplace. For that reason, my recommendation would alway be do step back, assess the issue and apply the kind of training that is actually needed. My first step is always a needs analysis (which can often be done very quickly).

Based on the needs analysis, it might be found that specific individuals need mentoring. That can either be done by someone within the workplace, or by an outsider brought in for the purpose and can take place on an individual or small-group basis. The analysis might uncover a need for more formal group training.

I offer both kinds of training. All training needs to be tied to measurable outcomes, which I discuss and establish before training begins. And all my training is based on hands-on learning, rather than theory delivered in PowerPoint (though there might be some of that too).


Online content production: from blogging to the big time

My course in online content production offers a flexible set of modules aimed primarily at content editors on news websites. There are some modules that are suitable for members of the public, or that would work for people in government, NGOs or corporates. Courses can be tailored to meet individual needs.  Modules or elements of modules can be fleshed out into full, standalone workshops. A full curriculum is available on request, but the three modules available are:

MODULE ONE: BLOGGING (or how to make a small website)
