I was recently fortunate to be able to attend one of John Young’s Get it Done by Lunchtime workshops. This was a highly dynamic and interactive workshop, during which John utilised his extensive experience in the world of live broadcast to deliver some powerful messages about communication and decision making. The group exercises we completed were very imaginative, using multi-media resources to add to the authenticity and, occasionally, to throw us off balance and make us re-evaluate our original conclusions. Johns natural enthusiasm was absolutely infectious, and his extensive journalistic experience brought great credibility. Even though the workshop I attended was relatively short, John still managed to take us through some really important learning experiences. The pace of the session was such that everyone remained completely engaged and this really added value to the team exercises. All this learning was reinforced through key summary points, and also a take-away guide so that the skills we learned could easily be transferred back to our work environments - and probably also our homes! My abiding impression of the session was that it was fun, energetic and provided more take-away skills in a short space of time than I could have imagined possible. Highly recommended.
