The craft of guiding: face-to-face interpretation workshop
Would you like to be more effective in communicating your message while guiding?
At the end of this one day workshop you will have at least three new tools to be a more engaging and memorable guide. We will focus on framing your presentations using themes, look at the value of story-telling as well as experimenting with creative techniques to share with visitors. The day will be highly interactive, building on your current practice.
Your tutors are Lynda Burns, who has been training guides in natural and cultural settings for over 30 years, and Jonathon Spring, a long-time guide at Tiritiri Matangi Sanctuary and tourism lecturer at the Auckland Institute of Studies who has completed a PhD on face-to-face interpretation.
