Attended: Intro to Facilitation: Becoming a Confident Leader
I loved this class! Super valuable for those who are planning and hosting meetings and workshops. I took away many helpful tips. The instructor is fantastic. One note for logistics: this venue is in a pretty hard to access location- no nearby subway, and a pretty desolate location at night. When you're hosting workshops that get out after dark, most of which people are attending alone and don't know anyone else in the class, I would have found it very helpful for the instructor to make note of that at the end and say "hey, this can be a pretty hard area to orient yourself from at night- we recommend ordering a cab before you leave the building if you can" or "hey, this is exactly how you get to the subway, it gets pretty quiet in this area so maybe we could coordinate a group to all walk there together if you like." Even as a native New Yorker, leaving here alone at night and trying to find the subway amongst the many construction reroutes happening was for sure one of my top 3 "I don't feel safe in New York" moments. I think this could be a pretty easy solve if you ask your instructors to make note of that at the end of the course!
