Thoroughly revised edition of the bestselling skill-building consultant guide
A revision of its successful predecessor-which has sold over 23,000 copies since it was first published in 1993-How to Run Seminars & Workshops has been completely revised throughout to provide the most up-to-date material currently available in the field. An entirely new chapter examines the state-of-the-art technology available to presenters, especially LCD projectors, laptops with PowerPoint, electronic white boards, documents cameras, 8mm players, and the idea-behind-distance learning. Written by a tireless consultant and self-promoter, How to Run Seminars & Workshops is an essential resource for the ever-expanding consultant market.

"Welcome to the world of stand-up delivery . . ."

Most people who become trainers or presenters fall into the same trap. They are taught what to teach, but rarely how to teach it. For almost ten years, Robert Jolles's How to Run Seminars and Workshops has shown thousands of people how to teach-how to stand up and deliver an effective training session in almost any setting.

In this long-awaited Second Edition, the former head of Xerox's world-renowned "Train the Trainer" program shares his proven techniques for winning over your audience, holding their interest, and effectively conveying information. For the seasoned pro, it's an invaluable tool for becoming a world-class seminar and workshop leader. For novices, it's a step-by-step self-teaching guide that gives you the confidence and the techniques you need to go "under fire" in front of any group and thrive in the "pit"-the area between lectern and audience.

This book covers all the bases, including research and preparation, questioning techniques, pacing, visual aids, evaluation and support feedback, and more, such as:
* How to work with adult audiences (and why it's different from teaching children)
* Secrets for getting trainees involved
* How to present your best self
* Hiring and developing staff
* Proven tricks of the trade you won't find elsewhere
* New technologies-LCD projectors, laptops with PowerPoint, electronic white boards, documents cameras, 8mm video players, and distance learning

Mr. Jolles and his associates conduct training programs and motivational seminars internationally.
