Workshop: Mastering Moderation

Thursday, 8 March, 2018 to Friday, 9 March, 2018
Turim | Italy
Moderation is a professional skill you acquire through experience. It’s all about interaction, interviewing, group dynamics, and leading discussions and processes. The best way to learn it is through plenty of practice and by watching the experts.
In a two-day training course with lots of individual attention, you will be trained by two seasoned professionals and you’ll practise every aspect of the profession under their supervision. Because that’s exactly what it is: a profession!
Surveys show that participants highly value relevance, quality and effectiveness of both workshop and trainers. They rate ‘Mastering Moderation’ with a NetPromoterScore of 80!

Practise, practise, practise. We believe that the only way to master moderation is by doing.
During two intensive days we will cover all the basic skills of the profession.

In this fast-paced workshop you’ll get tips and immediate feedback from not one, but two seasoned professionals, who’ll be keen to share their knowledge and experience with you. In a select group you’ll gain a wealth of experience. Since there’ll be no more than 12 people in the group, every participant will get plenty of individual attention. By the end of the course you’ll have found out what the profession involves and how capable at it you are, and you’ll have taken a major leap forward.
This workshop is suitable for people who:
… Have some basic experience in moderating and want to take it to the next level;
… Are in a management-position and have to facilitate internal meetings;
… Work for local or national government and have to chair public meetings;
… Are event-professionals or are used to being on stage in other roles (speaker, entertainer, etc) and want to expand their offer to the market;
… Work in PR, communications or advertising, with responsibility for client events, which      they want present themselves
… Have agreed without thinking it through to moderate a future event and are now terrified by the prospect
… Want to find out how well develloped their skills and talent for this profession are; and who want to build on that.

You’ll be trained by Kim Coppes and Jan-Jaap In der Maur, who between them have dozens of years’ experience and hundreds of meetings under their belts.

Jan-Jaap In der Maur is a meeting-moderator & -facilitator and owner/founder of Masters in, as well as keynote-/expert-speaker on the subject of interaction & moderation.
Kim says about him:
Jan-Jaap considers the interview to be his main skill, the question to be his most important instrument: the (human) interest question, the awkward question, the stimulating one, the journalist one, critical or light-hearted.
He will help choose from a wide range of interview/interaction formats, always finding the right tone of voice.
Jan-Jaap gets people to think and reconsider, convinced as he is that only challenging the status quo will bring new perspectives and new insights. Be it sharing of knowledge, finding solutions to a problem or getting people to understand each other, he will always focus on content and interaction.
Kim Coppes is a moderator-facilitator, conference host, drama workshop leader, interviewer, presenter at and coach in communication.
Jan-Jaap says about her:
As a moderator she’s as sharp as she’s disarming. Kim’s skills can be mobilised in a wide range of contexts: her personality makes her able to truly connect with any group. She works in a way that’s relaxed, alert and humorous all at the same time.
With her broad interests, there’s virtually no subject she can’t tackle. And her substantial experience makes her suitable for practically any concept, be it in a huge conference hall or a small management setting, from a serious debate to a lively awards show.

The next international workshop will be in Turin, on 8 & 9 march 2018. When we’re fully booked, we’ll set new dates.

The course runs from 9am (9.30 start) to 5pm both days.

We can also provide the workshop in-company.
