The craft of guiding: face to face interpretation workshops
Would you like to be more effective in communicating your message while guiding? At the end of this one day workshop you will have learnt and practiced at least three new tools to be a more engaging and memorable guide. The day will be highly interactive. We will focus on improving the ways you frame your talks through a focus on the use of themes to structure the stories you tell when guiding in a way that facilitates creativity and engages visitors. Our goal is to provide you with opportunities to extend what you currently do and there is time in the day to practice what you have learnt through presentations.
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.
