"I say, why wait, cancel the first and take the second. You have given the first the opportunity to let you know what is happening and he has not responded. Money is money and important to both TP and facilitator. I have this discussion…"
"Thanks Alexander. In this particular case, the TP has reserved the dates about two months ago. The workshops are due 20/21 and 23/24, that is just over a week from now. When I queried the TP if the workshops were going ahead, He said that he was not…"
"This is a difficult one. I am both a facilitator where I facilitate for other companies plus I am a Training Provider (TP) where I employ freelance facilitators. When a freelance facilitator is booked, it is up to the TP to keep the…"
Over the past two years quite a number of workshops that I was to facilitate for a service provider have been cancelled at short notice, resulting in me losing revenue. I have been trying to negotiate a cancellation fee with the service providers, but naturally they are reluctant to enter into such an agreement.What do other facilitators do to overcome this problem?ThanksSee More

Hi Rolf, I'd like to interview you for an article i'm writing on Project Management, please contact me at email@example.com or 0861 11 22 18 if you are available for commenting. Or please send me your details so that I can forward some questions to you.thank you.
Hi Rolf, Yes I am in Melkbosstrand, often up to Jhb as I run Engineer Placements with a partner resident there. I also give project management courses, mainly where and why they go wrong, intro to critical chain execution management and ambitious target structures; also trying to get a major training programme going for GCC Engineers in municipalities. Let's meet sometime, could have common ground as you mentioned
Hi Rolf, good to make contact again. SPE seems to have faded into a relic of its former self. It lost approval as a VA with ECSA as a result of not complying with the statutory requirements, and had a running conflict of sorts with ECSA.
The various specific discipline VAs are alive and well and have a good relationship betwwen themselves and with ECSA. They assist in providing the resources for the various engineering committees such as the PACs. What are you up to?
