What people say
Complex strategies = The content - I really enjoyed the framework provided - I will be implementing this within our own organisational community engagement framework.
Highly recommend Amanda - she was a fabulous, engaging and informative tutor, very engaging and is the best facilitator I have had throughout the engagement certificate units
I can't speak highly enough of Amanda. She was so generous with her expertise and real life experiences. This really helped me absorb the material. She is a powerful presenter and presented the materials in a compelling manner, an excellent trainer who created an inclusive and safe space to interact and learn.
I thought Amanda was really excellent. She had such a lovely, warm manner of presenting and made everyone feel comfortable to share. It was obvious she had run this course many times! This was the fourth IAP2 course I've completed and probably the one I most enjoyed. Amanda was also great at checking in and making sure we were on the same page, and happy to answer any questions along the way.
Amanda Newbery is the best trainer i have had to date. She was knowledgeable and engaging. She also went into the group work in Miro and made suggestions in the breaks - which has never ever happened before in a training course i have done with IAP2.
Engagement best practice is constantly evolving. The Articulous Academy programs have provided me with an opportunity to learn from leaders in the field. My engagement practice is already benefitting from the tools and lessons learned through the academy.
