To do a workshop, there’s a trick
Discovering how people tick.
You’ll want to be part of the group,
You need to feel you’re in the loop.
If you just stand there, blab and spout
And talk and talk around, about,
One direction information
With minimal participation.
Then you’re not making half the most
Of what you should be, as the host.
Your job’s to energise, excite
Get people buzzing left and right!
Involve the group that’s there with you
Create dynamics, include them too.
Engagement is the key you see,
It’s not just them, it’s us and we.
Discussions causing inspiration
Ideas abound and thought creation.
And questions about how to do,
And sharing a new point of view.
A good direction, know you aims
Include some decent fun and games.
Tools, techniques, activities,
A proper process if you please.
It’s not so hard you’ll get the knack
And once you’re on that workshop track,
You start to get the buzz, you’ll see
Just how much fun it really can be.
So let’s get started, find your groove,
Take a first step, bust a move.
You can devise a workshop too,
Don’t just sit there, get up and do!
