Type: Community Starter Workshop
Location: Nantwich, Cheshire
Trainer: Diane Cripps-Brodie
Participants: 4

I held my practical for my trainer course, this was held at Bench Bistro, Nantwich, Cheshire, UK. There was 4 participants, ages from 32-46.

I asked each of the participants to bring clean dry bottle (500ml). I held the workshop at a bistro where we hold our Lion’s meeting each week, kindly this is free of charge for us. I ensured I went through the presentation several times, I made notes what I wanted to say for each slide. I took some cut up plastic, wooden tools (wooden spoons & large knitting needs) I also took a couple of spare bottles just in case someone forgot.

The flow of the presentation went well. I did stumble on a a few slides as I rushed ahead whilst talking ( See Challenges)

Participants in the workshop were surprised at some of the points about recycling, which they have advised they will really look to start to look at their consumption & they are going to look to see where they can reduce their single use plastic use

I skipped ahead as I was talking through the presentation, this mean I didn’t have much to say about the next slide.

I need to slow down on the presentation & try to get people talking a lot more about their experiences & ideas on how to reduce their consumption
