  • Logistics of Training
  • Workshop planning logistics
    2 factors: Location and Time-frame
    Everything will depend on these factors!!
    Think about advantages & disadvantages of the location, and compare these to the workshop/training goals
    Think about ways to overcome any disadvantages or constraints
  • Ask yourself
    Who is the audience? What are their needs?
    What are the goals of the workshop
    What is the most appropriate date and time to conduct the training? Does this conflict with other conferences & workshops in the area?
    Where should the workshop be conducted? How many people can be accommodated? Who do I call to have the workshop date included on our organisation’s master calendar?
    How can the disadvantages be overcome?
