    It happens to every trainer, every facilitator, every presenter, and it throws us every time. Someone in the class challenges us; someone asks an aggressive or uncomfortable question; someone demonstrates a strong desire to be somewhere else. As trainers or presenters, we want to be able to handle these situations with confidence and professionalism.

    What’s the best approach when we work with a hostile audience, or even just a less-than-receptive group? How do we accomplish the goal of our training or presentation when the audience may be opposed to that goal, or suspicious of us as presenters?

    On March 20, 2015, the Trainers SIG presents, "Persuading a Hostile Audience." We'll talk about strategies for getting hostile members of an audience to listen, learn, and even (sometimes) agree with your presentation. We'll practice useful techniques in this interactive program, and you will come away with solid strategies for working with a less-than-receptive audience. 

    Your Facilitator

    Margaret Connery is Director of Training and Development for Hanley Wood, facilitating classroom and internet-based training to employees and managers across the country. With a background in public education, management, and human resources, she's presented training and led meetings for hundreds of groups, and not all of them have been friendly.

    Do you find yourself struggling to find ways to engage participants in your training sessions? Talking head training sessions are boring for both learners and trainers, and they don’t always lead to great learning either. From software to soft skills, just about any training topic will benefit from non-traditional ways to engage participants. 

    How you will benefit from the May 15th Trainers’ SIG:

    • Gain the confidence to try different participative techniques in your next training session
    • Learn several techniques for engaging participants that you can use the next day
    • Practice and experience techniques through highly interactive, participative, small group activities

    Our Facilitator

    With over 19 years’ experience in the learning and development field, Karen Wales has presented at many events on the topic of engaging learners through non-traditional facilitation techniques.  As the V.P. Learning Development with ISC Technology for the past seven years, Karen and her team have successfully used these techniques for many types of training including software, sales, operations, clinical training and more.
