Between 2015 and 2016, we delivered a Train the Trainer program for the Partnership, Resource Mobilization and Communication Unit of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (United Nations). The objective of the training was to transfer workshop facilitation and management skills to the IFAD professionals involved in the process of developing strategic partnerships with potential international project funding providers.


We designed and facilitated a mix of training sessions and practical experiences. The program included two-day workshops for 15 participants, each of whom then designed and managed real events with potential lenders, with the support of a Matter professional as a tutor / coach behind the scenes.


We provided an environment where all participants enhanced their ability to deliver the different modules of the IFAD workshops independently and in an engaging manner and strengthened their facilitation and presentation skills.
