About this event

Preparing knowledge in an engaging, “brain-friendly” and interactive way is a compelling prerequisite for participants to reflect on their own behaviour, try out new behaviour and commit to apply it in their day-to-day life. This training supports you in designing effective training and workshop sequences.

Join a growing number of learning specialists that ensure learning sticks!

Who invented 'Training from the BACK of the Room'?

Sharon L. Bowman. She has written seven popular training books and is the president of Bowperson Publishing & Training. Sharon has been a professional speaker, author, teacher, and trainer for over forty years. She works with people who want to fine-tune their information-giving skills, and businesses and educational institutions that want to offer exceptional in-house staff development programs.

"When asked to describe what Sharon does, she replies, "I teach teachers how to teach, and trainers how to train." She is a veteran trainer who puts her words into action, engaging learners from the moment they enter the room until the moment they leave. She uses a unique, high-energy, informal, hands-on approach to learning. Her workshops and classes are practical, useful, memorable, and fun. More than 70,000 of her first seven popular training and motivational books have been printed." [see author profile of the publishing house dpunkt, 2021]

Her popular two-day “Training from the BACK of the Room! (TBR)” course is one of the favorite train-the-trainer resources of agile coaches and trainers worldwide.

The 'Training from the BACK of the Room (TBR)' online course has been available since October 2020 and was developed by Sharon Bowman and 12 certified TBR trainers from the US, UK, Netherlands and Germany. Julian Kea is co-creator of the TBR online course.
