Hello Carolyn

Thank you for your post. I am rather curious to hear why you feel it is too high. If you look at market prices, you will realise that we are indeed in line with the bigger world out there.

I have worked for many NGOs and SME in various countries and I know how tough budgets can be or just plain lack of money. But, the price also reflects the quality of the trainer and the content. You know what they say "if you pay peanuts, you get moneys".

Sometimes we, as individuals and the IABC,  do pro bono work but not in this case. If we bring a trainer in from abroad we also have to pay them! Let's face it, the trainer is not going to get rich from doing this workshop.

She knows it too and works with many NGOs and SMEs in the UK and on the continent.

Hope that clarifies the situation.

This is a really interesting workshop but unfortunately the price is totally misaligned with the content.  NGOs and SMEs who need to work on a small budget will not be able to afford such a high price for such a workshop.  Good luck anyway - I'm sure it will be a useful workshop.
