First Time Facilitator

Thursday, October 1, 2020

You don't have to be new to the talent development industry to enjoy the First Time Facilitator with Leanne Hughes. The podcast is designed for anyone who wants to improve their training delivery skills. In fact, Hughes says she receives messages from seasoned facilitators around the world who love listening in for new tips on how to make a bigger impact on their next workshop.

In most episodes, Hughes chats with trainers and facilitators who share with listeners best practices as well as their personal thoughts on facilitation. For example, in "An Introvert's Perspective on Facilitation," Tony Brazelton, a corporate trainer and management and leadership consultant, offers an introvert's perspective on facilitation and even drops a few nuggets for managing small talk. In "How to Structure a 60 Minute Virtual Workshop that Delights Your Participants," Hughes draws from her own expertise and shares tips for boosting learner interaction and engagement in a virtual setting.


With more than 100 episodes available, there are ample topics to broaden talent development professionals' skills and knowledge. First Time Facilitator is available for iPhone and Android users, or visit firsttimefacilitator.com/podcas.
