Trainer Yen Kai was very engaging throughout the session. Role play was useful in allowing participants to apply learning on the spot.

Activities were well thought, authentic, and can be applied in real situations. They also make use of experiential learning so that we can learn. Very fun and relaxed environment for learning. Transition was smooth throughout too.

Important to remain neutral and decisions should be made by participants. Facilitator should not influence participants.

Facilitation skills and a lot of practice, practice, practice!

Facilitators need not be content expert, more importantly facilitators should remain neutral and promote healthy participation of all individual
