We learn more when we're having fun - that's why workshop games, exercises and icebreakers are so important! This 30 page .pdf booklet contains 21 1/2 workshop games, icebreakers and exercises for you to use in your workshops and seminars.

"If an audience only listens, they take away 12% of your content. By making it more visual, you can increase audience comprehension and remembrance to 26%. But when you actually get them involved and responding, their understanding and 'take away' goes up to 51%." Mark Lavergne
Emma-Louise's Book Recommendation: "Work the Pond" by Darcy Rezac. This simple and fun read was a godsend when I first arrived in Canada. I knew no-one and was starting a new coaching business. Removing common misconceptions about networking, this book showed me how to make networking easy. Excellent tips and resources to help anyone become a good 'networker'!
