~ Training again! ๐Ÿฆฅ๐Ÿ˜ท

๐Ÿ”˜ Who is back in trainings after a year without one?
๐Ÿ”˜ The first training of the decade meant to be online. (Thanks Mr. ๐Ÿฆ  )
๐Ÿ”˜ Working together with 31 young leaders from Brunei Darussalam ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ณ, Cambodia ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ, Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ, Japan ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต, Lao P.D.R. ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฆ, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ, Myanmar ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฒ, Philippines ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ, Singapore ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ, Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ & Vietnam ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ณ.
๐Ÿ”˜ A program that happened through Zoom in 4 day sessions instead onboard a cruise ship sailing the Pacific ocean. ๐Ÿ›ณ๏ธ
๐Ÿ”˜ Working with participants from cultures very unknown to me was a unique learning challenge also for myself.
๐Ÿ”˜ Sharing my passion for Social Entrepreneurship and namely my pathway to it felt so natural.
๐Ÿ”˜ Supporting the participating youth to be inspired to pivot their own entrepreneurial ideas while creating social and/or cultural impact.
๐Ÿ”˜ Using the changemaking tool from Ashoka as part of the curriculum supported me a lot into analysing systems and systems change concepts.
๐Ÿ”˜ Having to deliver a training at 6:00AM due to the timezone difference, was, let’s put it this way, a very interesting and unique experience.
โฏ๏ธ I am really grateful for being given the possibility to share my passion with youth from the other side of the world ๐ŸŒ

If you have a good product to offer even if it is socially or ethically made there is no reason to put the label “ethical” for marketing reasons.

ReACT: Training for Trainers [February 2020] ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ

~ Back to the Basi(c)s ๐Ÿ›ฌ๐Ÿซ

๐Ÿ”‹ Back to the place where I transformed my passion (volunteer scout โšœ๏ธ) into a profession (freelance trainer ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿซ)
๐Ÿ”‹ First training of the decade and I put myself back to the co-trainer role. So refreshing and so challenging at the same time
๐Ÿ”‹ Working together with 48 trainers in the same group is always sparkly
๐Ÿ”‹ I had the chance and the field to play and push with provocative and lazy coaching with my reflection group and it was so enjoyable (thank you people ๐ŸคŸ)
๐Ÿ”‹ Working in that team room and designing a training programme is still so inspiring.
๐Ÿ”‹ Admiring the growth of ex-learners of mine, that now became my teachers is just magnificent!
๐Ÿ”‹ Extension of the Erasmus+ deadline that I was battling came as a relief and gave me the possibility to finally apply a dream project that I had in my drawers through Roes Coop.
๐Ÿ”‹ What is Roes Coop? ๐Ÿ‘‰ When I arrived in the training I was a freelance trainer. Halfway the training I got the news that the social cooperative enterprise I co-founded is finally registered.
โฏ๏ธ Isn’t it the best place to become officially a social entrepreneur?
๐Ÿ’What was my main learning?๐Ÿ’
If I want to make something pro bono, I have to make it at least funny for me. (…and shit loads of other things that I need another post to explain).

๐ŸŽ–๏ธ This was ๐‘๐ž๐€๐‚๐“ – ๐“๐ซ๐š๐ข๐ง๐ข๐ง๐  ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐“๐ซ๐š๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ training course part of ReACT KA2 project aiming to educate trainers on delivering meaningful training activities in order to combat unemployment in 1-second-shots ๐Ÿคณ

Vision Ahead: media and promo skills for NGOs and Social Entreprises [December 2019] ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ

~ The best way to close a circle is to open a new one ๐Ÿ“ผ๐Ÿ”œ๐Ÿ“€

๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ The last training of the decade was a media training, the type of training that inspired me to start doing trainings.
๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ This time with a #Roadtrip on the menu with 2000km ๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ and my car’s plate dry clutch broken and repaired โš™๏ธ
๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ During 7 days of training, we created 66 videos.
๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ 5 of them are Social Promotional videos for non-profit organizations in Plovdiv, Bulgaria
๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ All these we did with frugal production tricks (smartphones, gorillapods, lots of paper tape, and any equipment and prop available)
๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ The group had the chance to interact with the participants of the previous and the next group by preparing video messages. ๐ŸŠ
๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ During the time of the training, I had the chance and the honour to fund my first social entity – more news soon ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ
๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ This time I worked with a team of co-trainers and we had the chance to elevate the learning more while developing and supporting a social startup on the side of the training. – again more news soon. ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ
๐Ÿ–ฒ๏ธ Another year of trainings in now ended and along with it the success of capturing all of them in 1-second shots videos. In total 6094 seconds of memorable learning moments of 2019.
๐Ÿ’What was my main learning?๐Ÿ’
Teams utilise learning the most and bring an extra perspective and synergy.
#Conlusion: Ready to take over 2020 with my dream team!
