Our team of specialist workshop facilitators have been running Hothouse™ Creative Facilitation training courses for over 10 years. Our most popular course is a 3-day "train the trainer" program for 20-24 delegates.  The objective of the course is to give delegates the skills, confidence and experience to plan, prepare and facilitate innovation workshops, both internally and with external teams.  Delegates are provided with a complete tool-kit of different facilitation techniques and they get a chance to use these techniques by running an interactive business case study.  Watch the short movie from a recent course and take a look at some of Top Tips for Winning Innovation.
