Session Outline

Come and join Mark for a fun, highly-interactive online session featuring a series of fun exercises which highlight the Zulu concept of Ubuntu meaning “I am because we are.”

This session will showcase a collection of Mark’s most successful online exercises which leverage the essence of powerful conversations and connections, ie UBUNTU.

The science clearly shows that the most most successful programs in the world – in-person and online – are those which INTENTIONALLY nourish and develop trusting and healthy relationships from the beginning. That’s what this session is all about.

This session was presented to the local Victorian Facilitators Network meeting in April 2002 to rave reviews. Expect to walk away with lots of simple ideas to help your training participants play, interact, share & build trust for all online settings.

An outrageously fun-filled time is guaranteed. Every idea presented can be immediately implemented in your own setting.
