Professional Development Opportunities

The Spokesperson Newsletter from November 11, 2020

Hey there!
Raise your hand if you are considering attending my Experiential Facilitation 101 course next month… Is the cost preventing you from registering? I’m going to do a contest and give away three free seats to this class December 15-17 in Littleton, CO. Just share this video on Facebook and tag either @TrainingWheels or @MichelleCummings (otherwise I won’t know you shared it!) to be entered in the contest. I’ll put all of the entries into a hat and alert the lucky winners. This only applies to the Open Enrollment Seats. We do still have two Certification Seats available. Register for the Certification Seat if you are interested in being certified to teach this class to your own students or clients in the future.

New Workshop Opportunity! Matthew, Trevor and I have been busy working behind the scenes on converting many of the in-person games from Team Building From the Toy Aisle into digital format. We’re going to host a 3-hour session to introduce you to the new games from the book, but also teach you ways to start developing these kinds of tools on your own. We also strategically put this workshop right before the US Thanksgiving holiday, so you can play-test these games with your loved ones in the virtual space.
