Gary Rush, IAF CPF - "Facilitation vs Facilitator"

"After qualifying for the IAF CPF assessment, I was eager to attend a training which would provide me with the necessary skills and preparation. I came across the 5-day workshop by FoCuSeD™ Facilitator Academy while reading a forum on facilitation skills. I was initially hesitant to sign up for the workshop as it would mean investing much time and money to make the trip from Singapore, but it turned out to be the best workshop I have ever attended. I received a set of notes that can only be put together by someone with many years of real facilitation experience, and what turned out to be better than that was the writer and trainer himself, Gary Rush. Gary was very helpful and generous in sharing his experience and knowledge. I could not have better prepared for my assessment. And I passed!" gary rush
