Fluency, vivid examples, consensus with the audience - even when there were several different opinions, the trainer gave everyone a chance to speak and took everyone's opinion into account. Gave thorough feedback at the end of the training.
Can present material in an engaging way and explain quite complex subject matter in a very clear way. The trainer is an expert, pleasant in communication, open.
The trainer guides the audience, understands what they want to achieve. It was very interesting to listen and to practise in role plays.
