A different ‘Bag of Tricks’ – presenting to schools, meeting with clients and facing the curly questions at a parent information night!
12:45 – 1:35 pm
14th of July
Room: Alpine Ash
Deep dive into the world of presenting to client groups in Outdoor Education and School Camps. We have a wonderful collection of leaders / managers /coordinators in our sector with an amazing depth of experience. Often though their new roles see them in an unfamiliar and sometimes uncomfortable space – like for example standing up in front of a few hundred parents talking about an upcoming school camp. In this session, we’ll try to workshop develop some ideas to succeed in this tricky space.
