My experince as an FLO participant, with Sarah Mbinji

Registering for this FLO training is one decision I'm proud of! I am especially grateful for two things:

1) The rich content of the learning experience

2) our facilitator Sarah Mbinji.

Without exaggeration, she is one of the best facilitators I've come across, EVER!! Sarah, if you get to read this, please, be informed that you've made me appreciate adult learning, you have demystified certain concepts I held about being a good trainer! I keep looking forward to our sessions. Oh, I can't forget to mention how I absorbed our sessions on conveying information, with a particular interest in questioning techniques (!!!), as well as understanding in depth how feedback works! For the first time, I now understand why I've always felt confused and frustrated with some feedback I receive!! Sarah, thank you so much. I am watching you and learning from you. We are only halfway and I feel so confident that I can now deliver a successful training project! Can only imagine when we reach the finish line.

Thank you so much, Sarah.

Exciting training journey with a Star Trainer!

Sarah Mbinji is one of the most amazing trainers I have ever met! Her warm, courteous and inspiring personality blended with the wealth of knowledge and experience demonstrated in conducting the FLO course made it easy for me to discover my training gaps and commit to learning during the training journey. Given the simple and articulate way in which she delivered the training, each session felt like a stepping stone for me to become a better trainer and hopefully a ‘Star Trainer’ like her in the future. Sarah, I have added you to the list of role models that inspire me to excel at the different things I do and live a meaningful, impactful life!  Asante Sana and God bless you always as you continue adding value to more professionals.

Transformational Facilitation Experience

I'm glad I took this course. I'm passionate about learning and training. I had always thought I was good at training since I have the information and confidence. However, in my career and life journey, I have come to learn and appreciate that everything is a science. There is a scientific way to do everything that needs to be done excellently. That is what I have encountered in this Facilitating Learning training journey conducted by Sarah. Sarah is a gracious trainer. Very knowledgeable and experienced. What stands out for me is the phrase "the knowledge is in the room and Do Not Lecture". I found myself lecturing rather than facilitating knowledge. As I embark on my experienced training journey, I can only imagine how effective I will be.

Exceptional, indispensable trainer and training.

Sarah, thank you for building my confidence in facilitating. Your style of engaging learners outshines the tens and hundreds I have listened to or engaged with. Your excellence in delivering the Facilitating Learning Online & In person (FLO) content made me enjoy every session we had. As I reflect on my now and before the training, I can self-assuredly say that value has been added to my vision and aspirations. You walked the talk of a great trainer and cared for our different learning preferences. You not only got but won my attention enough for me to stimulate the interest of others to be part of your training in the future. Many blessings and great years ahead.

OUTSTANDING LIFE CHANGING FACILITATOR

I am completely honored to have met her. Such facilitators are a rare gem!!!!! I am confident in affirming that I have found a mentor to whom I'll always be looking up! Something that I have been missing in my teaching profession.

A motivating, engaging, friendly, honest, and patient facilitator!!! Her lessons are life-changing to me and trust me, after following through with what she has taught, I can see a lot of improvement in my learner's understanding. 

Through her, I am now able to relate more with my learners and tap into their potential. I have learned that I don't always have to be the "smart one" in the room. 

Thank you, Sarah, I am forever indebted to you for this life-changing experience. I will continue putting what I have learned info practice. I highly recommend her !!!!!!!

Mentor and life coach

Sarah is the true definition of a real-life coach,

I enjoyed the class and indeed Sarah is passionate about delivering quality impactful knowledge to her students. Being in her class made me complete because she never leaves anyone behind when delivering the content and she made sure you are at home with the contents of the discussion and assignments.

Sarah is a super-talented, natural coach and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an intuitive, sincere, and deeply passionate coach. She is truly a one-of-a-kind personality, she helped me in finding my own self on what are my passions and strengths. Her knowledge of so many industries and her willingness to share her personal life experience helped me build the confidence in finding my own path.  She has not only been an amazing coach but also a caring mentor, and the strategies and lessons she has provided have inspired and motivated me to live a life in congruency with my values and passions.

An Exceptional Facilitator

Sarah is an exceptional facilitator. She desires to see that her participants are extraordinary because she delivers her training with excellence. Her passion and ability to keep everyone engaged in class sweeps me off. 

I am a lucky student because I am getting mentored by Sarah who is knowledgeable about so many disciplines, she is talented and very patient with every one of us. I want to learn these traits from her and be a better version of myself under her coaching. I joined this course when I lost my self-esteem. Other people had told me I could not do facilitation and I never gave it a try in any class. I had no courage because I had never taken any course for facilitation. Now Sarah's mentorship has made me realize so much potential within me and qualities within me that were hidden. I am up and grateful.

Sarah no amount of thank you will be enough to reward you. 

I am amazed at how Sarah delivers her service to us.

Demystifying my fears as a trainer!

Sarah is a confident, amiable, and engaging trainer! I’m glad I signed up for the FLO course. I have tried training before but never had the confidence to deliver effective training. Sarah has demystified this for me! The FLO sessions have given me very useful tips for training adults. Sarah has introduced simple steps and acronyms to enable me to prepare and deliver training in a structured and effective way. I have picked tips like... ‘’Grab Attention!’’,  ‘’Less is more’’, ‘’Don’t OPUNDE’’ etc, which I’m learning to apply to my training. The sessions are very interactive, and everybody is put at ease to ask questions and to give their various experiences. I would surely recommend Sarah to any professional!

Insightful and educational experience with Sarah

Attending this course with Sarah was an eye-opener, Sarah covered the learning content with ease, patience, and grace demonstrating her experience understanding the adult learner. The content, tools, and ideas shared made me realize that learning is a lifelong journey and there is always something new for me to upskill. I cannot wait to put what i have learnt into practise and also always start with knowing that the "knowledge is in the room" and avoid the big mistake of lecturing your audience.

Thank you for your wisdom and keep on teaching and educating us all! 

This was a year-end gift to myself and I am grateful to have attended this course with you.

TRAINER OF TRAINERS PER EXCELLENCE !

Sarah Mbinji has been an exceptional trainer throughout the course.  From her delivery to a consistent flow of energy and her ability to take a daunting course and simplify it, so that it seems infinitely do-able. She has taken what is usually an area of difficulty for most (public speaking and in this case for training purposes) and made it extremely simple.  I found the training techniques of GLOSS, EASE, FEED, and OFF invaluable. Not forgetting the tips on handling difficult training situations LAP_ACT !!!  My suggestion to anyone planning to polish their training skills & training etiquette is to register for Sarah's FLO course it will set you up for long-term success!!!
