Shirley’s Training Methodology

Fun and Friendly

With Shirley, you can be guaranteed that she will make the workshop interactive and fun. She gets to know participants quickly, and they learn to trust her and ask questions. Her friendly, down-to-earth style helps to engage the audience from the start, encouraging participation and stimulating interaction.


Shirley uses a variety of teaching methods and tools to make sure the learning is practical and fun. There will be theory-sharing, discussions, group work, Q&A, role-plays, and practical exercises. Participants will be encouraged to share examples from their own experience.

Useful Workbook and Presentations

Shirley’s training manuals are very thorough and comprehensive. Her workbook is just that – a comprehensive workbook to follow-along with, to work through, and to take extra notes. It’s proven that attendees learn more, and the learning lasts longer, when they write down notes, brainstorm, fill in blanks and jot down their own thoughts and notes. Shirley always includes examples and templates where appropriate, plus summaries of key learning points or top 10 strategies.

Shirley’s slides contain powerful, meaningful visuals that complement the visuals in the workbook, so participants always know where they are. Her slides are interesting and fun, never boring, and they do not contain long wordy lists and lots of information.

Practical Learning Tools

Shirley also provides practical learning tools, such as her four-point plan card in writing workshops.

Shirley can also include one of her best-selling books in the package for your customised training program.
