Workshops

I train journalists, media professionals, j-students and consult media organisations – mainly through international media development agencies, in-house workshops and journalism schools.

I also facilitate workshops for teams and groups of people applying a range of communication techniques from user-centred design through to Lego Serious Play.

Below you’ll find details of recent workshops.

If you’re interested in my approach to instructional design, training and facilitating, this Medium article offers more insight.
