A week in Burkina Faso

Updated: Apr 17, 2023

Most people haven't heard of the landlocked country of Burkina Faso in West Africa. When I first went there, just weeks after I got married in 2005, my Mum referred to it as, "that bikini place".....

And here I was again, 18 years later, running an emergency simulation workshop for Tearfund.

Focus of the workshop

The client wanted to run a simulation workshop for their on-call emergency team to prepare them to respond to future disasters. They were taken from * countries, and brought together for an intense 4 days of training, simulation and debrief.

Learning in the moment

The key feedback was that under pressure

we achieved so much

debrief - get the ingredients, mix them all together to make a dish spend time sampling it and drawing out all the tasty bits.

What I love about running these workshops

It was a lot of pressure putting all the material together but when you see the learning the effort is worth it.

enhanced learning

team dynamics
