My workshops combine tips and advice with a quick but thorough primer on best practice for the topic at hand. Participants then apply these concepts to their own work, with feedback from myself and peers. Learning is further embedded through PDF copies of my PowerPoint slides, as well as handouts with additional tips. People emerge from my workshops with greater zeal and a renewed sense of purpose. As one participant put it in her evaluation form,
“I was thrilled by Delia’s energy and enthusiasm…She’s been a source of inspiration and a role model I’ll try to emulate.”
With the advent of the 2020 pandemic, I now offer all of my workshops both face-to-face and virtually. My home office is fully kitted out with the latest equipment, and I can be highly flexible with delivery times so as to meet needs across time zones. Where the client is able and/or keen, I am happy to have my workshops filmed. I have not observed any change in the quality of my assessments in my online workshops.
I have delivered workshops for anywhere from 4 to 80 people. Workshops typically last between 90 minutes to an entire day, at times extending across several days. While I offer a robust and diverse suite of workshops (see below), I am always open to adding new material. I can also mix and match different components from existing workshops to yield a more bespoke experience. I am available for weekend hire, although weekdays are preferable. Prices vary by type of client, so please contact me to discuss in more detail.
Sample workshops include:
- Advanced Presentation Skills for sales representatives at an energy company
- Using Stories to Engage and Inspire Others for Executive MBA’s at a business school
- Academic Writing for post-graduate students pursuing their PhDs
- Life Skills for Offices for Master’s students seeking employment
- How to Edit Your Own Writing for researchers and policy analysts at a think tank
