Experiential trainers and best-selling authors, Mark Collard (Australia) and Nate Folan (USA) are offering a practical one-day training workshop in Victoria, Australia, this month.

Together, Mark and Nate are super passionate about helping group leaders deliver programs that are not only fun, but make a positive difference in the lives and performance of their groups. Their books are sold in over 30 countries, including Mark’s best-selling No Props:Great Games with No Equipment, his latest publication Serious Fun and Nate’s The Hundredth Monkey.

This seriously fun, activity-based training is specifically designed for camp leaders & outdoor educators who want to engage their groups quickly and help them build and strengthen relationships. It will equip you with dozens of great activity ideas and model a fun approach to leading remarkably powerful experiential programs that are easy to deliver and rewarding for everyone involved.

Jam-packed with inspiration and practical advice, this workshop will:

  • Present dozens of highly successful new & revised group activities that have universal appeal, require few if any props & relate directly to your program’s key learning goals;
  • Model a simple yet powerful four-step sequence called the Difference Model that is proven to engage people in their learning & create remarkably fun programs; and
  • Explore critical program design & facilitation skills such as how to engage unwilling participants & how to
exceed expectations.


Includes lunch & refreshments, and 2 x BONUSES – free copy of Serious Fun book (RRP$30) and one-month trial of playmeo’s activity database.
