During lated September and early October I will be teaching 5 workshops in London and Cologne, Germany for a large automotive company headquartered in southeastern Michigan. Before heading to Germany, I will be teaching my 2-day course titled “Idea Mapping: A Learning Workshop” in Poole which boasts a beautiful view of the southern coast. The dates are October 6-7, 2008.


Today I secured the Thistle Hotel, and the banquet room we are using has an elegant view of the harbor. The hotel rates are 98 GBP per night including VAT and Bed & Breakfast. Because of the exchange rate the cost of the workshop becomes extremely affordable at $695 USD. For anyone trying to make a hotel reservation from outside of the UK, the best number is +44 (0) 1202 666800. Seating is limited to the first 20 people. Registration will only be open until August 29, 2008 due to the need to order, ship, and get quite a large amount of materials through customs. See the Course Abstract for content details and materials that come with the workshop.

Joining me in this adventure are three special guests. First of all, the location was chosen because it is near my dear friend Vanda North’s home. So participants can expect a special visit from this infamous lady. Secondly, Kaye Nightingale will be joining us. Kaye is a Microsoft Master Instructor and NVQ Assessor, and has been featured in several previous postings on this website. Also in attendance will be Steve Rothwell who has also been featured on this blog.

Livonia, Michigan

On August 19-20, this lovely suburb will be the site for another 2-day workshop. Once a year I teach a local public class. We have participants coming in from Maine, Iowa, and Ohio in addition to the local Michigan folks. There are a few seats left and still time to register since it is a local course for me. See the Course Abstract for content details and materials that come with the workshop.
