If you are trying to create your first (or third) live workshop event, you need a vision.  A roadmap with signposts to your destination – the live workshop event – would be even better.

Either way, you may need assistance or resources.

Welcome to the site of TheWorkshopDesigner.com, a place for like minded individuals focused on learning and sharing within the community.

Creating a live workshop is a complex maze of choices, decisions and opportunities.   Although it takes significant time and resources, it can also be an exhilarating achievement.  The moment when you witness your audience’s “aha” moment of learning – is truly awesome.
