Why Libra for training?

Variety of teaching methods

I mix a variety of teaching methods to maximise learning and sharing of participant experiences:

  • short lectures
  • discussion sessions
  • critique sessions
  • written and oral exercises
  • group working.

Flexibility in workshop design

As every client has different training needs, I will tailor a workshop programme through discussion with a client to optimise:

  • timing and duration of sessions
  • emphasis of content
  • teaching methods.

Value for money
  • All courses are individually costed and independent of participant numbers.
  • In comparison with other providers, my fees are generally very competitive.
  • I strive to ensure cost is not a barrier to organisations that are interested in me providing training.


I generally receive very good feedback from workshops I deliver.
