Learning Objectives:

Audio and WiFi : the 2 or 3 videos from YouTube are each about one to two minutes long – having good audio as well as Wi-Fi will be very important.

This will be quite Interactive, with me providing set-up info, and then people working at their table [ideal format= group of 5 to 7 people] for portions of the session and also sharing information out to the larger group at a couple of checkpoints. I am still working on the more detailed supporting charts and guide materials for the session.

Target Audience:

Practitioners, Coaches
