to what others have said about previous classes on workshop design
with Marion Franklin...
What a great workshop! I'm looking forward to implementing what I
gleaned from this workshop into my own workshops.

nice clip. I have created workshops for 10 years and this gave me
some information that I had missed!! Well delivered and engaging.
I learned a lot. It is definitely an art.
Excellent class. I am in the process of developing two different workshops
and this class helped me get over a hump with both of them!
what people are saying about Marion's book, "7 Simple Secrets
to Successful Workshops" which comes with this course...

After reading this ebook, I feel like I could put together a workshop
that I would be proud of by this afternoon.
Secrets To Successful Workshops makes it easy for coaches, trainers
and facilitators who are new to developing and delivering workshops.
