Workshop Presentation Questions and Answers


Are you considering creating and leading a workshop presentation and have some questions before you jump in? Here are a few common questions asked of me and my answers to them. Please email me any questions you may have and I'll be happy to answer them.


Q: I?ve never conducted a workshop. What training do I need?

A:No formal training is required. Your life experience is the most valuable asset you can bring to your workshop. There are many successful facilitators who developed their seminar and workshop presentation skill on the job, building confidence as they gained experience in front of a group. If you want training, take a course in public speaking. However, don?t let a lack of formal training get in your way of getting started.


Q:How much investment does it take to get started?

A: You can create and present a workshop with a very small investment. If finances are a concern, try out your workshop in your church or an association you may belong to. Offer it as an extended education class in your community where the space is provided and part or all of your promotion costs are taken care of. Use easels and flip charts for your workshop presentation and create your own handouts. These are just some of the ways you can get started with a minimum of expense.


Q: I?ve been retired for several years. Will people take me seriously as a workshop or seminar leader at my age?

A: Absolutely. You have a wealth of experience, knowledge and wisdom to share and the time to develop a successful workshop. It?s important to be current and to fill in any gaps of important information. If you know your topic well, follow the workshop presentation plan and advice I've outlined in my manual, your participants will have confidence in you and appreciate what you bring to them.


Q: I can?t afford to quit my job, but I want to create and facilitate my own workshop presentations. Any suggestions?

A: If you need your present income, then it?s a good idea to keep your job as you create your workshop. You can begin testing your workshop evenings or weekends. If you have the time, there?s no reason why you can?t continue your workshop presentations and keep your regular job.


Q: Isn?t there too much competition in the workshop/seminar business for me to be successful?

A: Not at all. People crave information of all kinds. Individuals of all ages and interests are looking for ways to learn and grow, to expand their business skills and enhance their life experience. If you have experience and know-how, you have the basis for a successful workshop or seminar.


Q: A business associate and I want to present a workshop together. Is this a good idea?

A: It?s a great idea as long as you both agree on your objectives, what you want your participants to learn and how each of you can best contribute to your workshop and working relationship. By cooperatively and creatively pooling your individual skills and knowledge, you can provide the participants with a dynamic workshop.


Q: What makes your book different from other books on the subject of presenting workshops and seminars?

A: How to Create and Present Great Workshops is based on sound learning principles that consider how people learn best and enjoy learning. I've done all the background work and pass on to you an easy to apply master plan .

You'll have the proven step-by-step tools to develop workshops and presentations that works every time for any audience and any topic. It's easy when you know how.
