Train the Trainer 2018

As is tradition at KI-EF, the last weekend of November is reserved for Train the Trainer (TtT). The training took place on 24-25 November in Prague.

A small but very concerned group enjoyed the training under the lead of Sietske Hoving, Chair of the Committee for Education & Training and with the cooperation of Guðlaugur Kristjánsson, member of the same committee, and Jan Van Hove, Director of Membership & Programs, MSC Ghent.

The feedback from participants was very positive, as you can see from their evaluation report. But more than this, here are the reactions of two newcomers in that forum: Domenico Di Bella from Italy-San Marino and Eric Meurer-Eichberg from Germany:

Domenico’s comments:

  • TtT was a great opportunity to share a new experience with Kiwanian friends as well as into the Kiwanis Family. It helped me to work in group with enthusiasm and motivation and contributed to increase the knowledge of the Kiwanis’ principles and values.
  • TtT has given me the opportunity to have new friends; it is a great moment to know and develop training’s methods, according to action and motivation general rules.
  • TtT was well organized and held with passion. Everything was perfect. I have really appreciated all the moments and of all you. I hope to be involved in new and further international training events.

Eric’s thoughts:

  • KI-EF train the trainer was not only an amazing experience, it also showed again that Kiwanis is also about building and enriching long lasting friendships. Meeting my fellow trainers and the participating European board members was a great way to exchange experiences with Kiwanis training held in the different districts and to enrich each other’s knowledge with new ideas and inspirations.  An intensive training gave new aspects and a different viewpoint to our work in the districts. At the same time, it is a good forum to represent my own district on a European level, showcasing the district successes and bringing the district needs to the attention of the Board. Coming back, this look beyond my own nose gave me new enthusiasm to bring our own training to a new level.

Reading this, does this not attract you to be part of a training team ?
