On Friday 13th September, Institute of Australian Tour Guides organised a refresher course for experienced tour guides in Brisbane. The course was facilitated by Steve Mcauley ( Chairperson for IATG) and Peter Wagner (Lead International Trainer with the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations).
It was a fantastic way to feel like a true athlete and be coached and encouraged by such experienced guides. Presenting and being critiqued in front of your peers helps to keep you current and gives you new angles to how a tour can be brilliantly conducted.
I would love to hear your feedback on your experiences of taking refresher courses ?
