Community of Practice
Entrepreneurs joining together virtually online to share tips, ideas, challenges and what’s happening in their own business.
“Spicer Facilitation & Learning was recommended to the Gander Women’s Centre as we transitioned into a virtual world. I’m extremely happy with the training provided by Carole, she is a warm and knowledgeable woman. What I liked most about the training, was that it was delivered in a professional manner with a side of personality. The virtual platforms and the program content were applicable and easy to use and follow. I highly recommend the programs themselves and Carole is a great facilitator! I’m sure we will be working together in the future!” ~ Wendy Secord, Program Coordinator, Gander Status of Women Council
A number of these workshops are ideal for your next conference, AGM or professional development days. Only 90 minutes to 3 hours in length, they are perfect for adding a learning component to your event.
“I would definitely recommend yesterday’s workshop [Customer Service in Challenging Times] to others. I have attended many virtual workshops, but this workshop was the best one I have attended yet! It had great materials that we could download for later and the facilitator gave us time to review the materials. I enjoyed that the facilitator kept us engaged and asked us for our opinions. Sometimes, it can be stressful to speak up in virtual spaces. The body language is lacking and you are not sure if someone else is about to speak. It was nice to chat with everyone and I appreciated their perspectives and advice. I am looking forward to more opportunities, such as this one.” ~ Mandy Penney, BSW, RSW, Master’s Candidate, Memorial University
