The Big House: How to successfully run workshops

31 January, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for a fun and interactive session, exploring how to successfully run a workshop.  From tips on planning a fulfilling day, to getting the right people in the room and keeping them interested.  This 4 hour session will help you to create an action plan to take away and put into practice.

What’s on offer?

Many businesses are using workshops as a source of cash flow.  And, of course, they’re a great way to make use of the skills you have.  As a result of attending, participants will leave the session with knowledge of how to successfully run a workshop.  Moreover, they’ll also have an action plan they can take away and put into practice.

  • Introduction to workshops
    • Purpose
    • Goals
    • Target Audience

    • Creating a running order

  • Follow up and feedback
    • Social media over business cards
    • Feedback forms
    • Follow up email

Further information and registration

Of course, there will also be lots of tea, coffee and biscuits on hand to keep you going.  Although this event is FREE, we only have a limited number of spaces available for this workshops seminar.  So don’t delay, book your place today.

While this event is free to attend, you must first enrol with The Big House. This is because it is part of a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) initiative. Please download and complete the form and bring it with you to the event, as it will be required when signing in. Furthermore, please note that we will be documenting the event. If you do not wish to be included in images or videos that may be used later for marketing purposes, please let us know beforehand.

The Big House events are free to you because they are funded. However, there is a cost attached to them for us and we are a not-for-profit organisation. So, if you have registered to come, your place will have been paid for. Our events are popular and we often have a waiting list. With this in mind, if for any reason you are unable to attend please cancel your event on Eventbrite as soon as possible to enable someone else to take your place.
