Effie Kokkinou - Facilitators Bootcamp

I have participated in several training courses but had never experienced a training course like this: Intensive, professional, and useful. The working hours were long, but we did not even realize it. The activities were so varied and so enjoyable that we would get up in the morning full of energy, ready to see what the -pretty amazing- trainers had in mind. 

My favourite parts were the activities focusing on public speaking and creative writing. I come from and work in an educational system that prioritizes argumentative writing, so it the writing activities were like a breath of fresh air. Also, I am a firm believer in the need to help the younger generation overcome any concerns regarding public speaking and learn skills to capture their audience. The training, with the activities we completed and the kind of feedback we learned to give and receive, did just that.

In addition, I was surprised to see how well we connected as a group. I had my reservations at first, as the members were quite diverse, especially when it comes to age, but in the end, both the members and the trainers proved and realized that age really is just a number. 

Overall, it was a fantastic experience. Thank you for allowing me to have it. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to experience something like this again, though now my standards are high...
