"Your training has had a huge impact. At a guess the training of 8-10 people that day has lead to the use of your tools to at least 500 people plus! Your training workshop 'moving bodies moving minds' has certainly done that. It opens minds, ensures everyone contributes, helps people think differently, shares different views and develops ideas."
Dawn Cordy Denmark

"Whenever I point one of my Agile coach friends to your material they are wowed - big time!  And these are people who live and breathe 'facilitation'."
Nancy Van Schooenderwoert, Lean­-Agile Partners, Inc., President

"Roger is highly professional and highly respected in the field of Experiential Learning and Management Development. He has successfully worked with senior faculty at Ashridge Business School on two occasions and his techniques are widely used in the organisation."
Angela Jowitt UK

"The active reviewing techniques Roger presented have really revolutionized my whole approach to adventure based learning... of far greater impact was Roger's personal philosophy and his immensely positive approach."
Chan Yuen-Li Malaysia

Jacob Lindeblad Denmark

"We have used many of your reviewing tools and transfer strategies in our programs already, very effective and innovative! Our clients like it, we like it… my favorite is Metaphor Map, which I used a lot as last summarize activity in my program with fantastic effects!"
Susan Zhu China

"Roger showed the capacity to adapt quite easily to our Chilean culture. As a result we had an excellent and memorable training. 100% of the Roger´s work was applicable and practical and very clever and based in deep knowledge and experience."
Camilo Mendoza Chile

"Roger knows more about how to turn experience into learning than anyone I know, or know of. His particular brand of creativity--always seeing multiple ways to look at things, plus deep experience and thoughtful, research-based approach make him second to none in his field."
William Spencer USA

"We looked long and hard for a facilitator to work with our team... All approaches to Roger came back with a thoughtful and insightful response. We felt certain we could work with Roger ... and we would not hesitate to work with Roger again."
Sharon Naylor UK

"Roger is a world class master at evoking wise action from groups. If you wish your groups and teams to take even wiser and even more effective action, I strongly recommend getting to know Roger personally."
Tim Pearson USA

"I have seen Roger work across cultures with a natural ease that is inspiring. It is hard to find an equal combination of modesty and excellence in experiential education or training."

Active Reviewing:
A Practical Guide for Trainers and Facilitators
presented by Bogdan Vaida and Roger Greenaway

See the 6 minute video about this online training course

Hands-on, fun, effective

"This course is hands-on and ready-to-use, with depth. It removes the barrier between the playful and the useful. My advise: Take the first tiny bit you find inspiring, and just do it! Make an experience of it, and return for further inspiration."

Klaus Bakdal Denmark

Rocket Fuel

"Anyone who facilitates debriefs or retrospectives, or even convenes meetings MUST take the time to learn from Roger Greenaway and company. The interactive techniques of this group are a potent learning accelerant that not makes teams more productive, more creative and more happily engaged."

Karen Spencer USA

Really interesting and innovative

This course is really useful, very interesting and innovative, but also quite simple to understand and put into practice.

It's a good mix of written, video and other media, and the content is so useful and effective (I have tried it, and it really works).

Highly recommended!

John Tomlinson

Genuinely Awesome!

I have a been a trainer / facilitator for a numbers of years and this was just a great support to the work we do within the McDonald's Corporate Training Team. I would highly recommend the course to anyone with experience of debriefing / review experiential activities and who is focused on continuous improvement. Cracking!

Ben George
McDonald's Corporate Training Team UK

A treasure

On the whole, I’m VERY EXCITED that you are doing this. It makes what you’ve been doing all these years so clear and so accessible. The videos are technically very well made - really exceptional.

Bernie DeKoven
Deep Fun USA

A good range of practical reviewing tools and techniques that are well explained!

I took this course to refresh my capacity as a trainer, facilitator and coach to review experiences... The course provides a good range of ways to review different aspects of experience and the team that have put this together provide examples and support through thorough documentation... I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to become a better trainer or coach. The tools here do work and I have applied many of them into my work already. A great piece of continuous professional development that is worth the investment!

Andi Roberts UK

A must for all trainers not experienced in Roger's reviewing methods

A programme that will really help trainers get to grips with active and creative reviewing skills. It's in nice short sections so it's easy to go back and review a method before you use it. I might make this a prerequisite for my associate trainers!

Shirley Gaston
Azesta UK

Awesome learning experience

I've been a trainer for years, I always keep me up-dated with new techniques and from this course I went away with practical and inspiring techniques to implement in my own practice. I also liked the quality of the materials. It was definitely worth time and money invested.

" helped me tremendously in my facilitator career. Before reading Roger's materials I was doing a maximum of one review per training session with moderate success. After reading the materials I have implemented active reviewing throughout my trainings and the changes have been instantaneous."
