Patricia Eguía Mayor


For me it is very important to create a safe atmosphere where participants can feel comfortable to exchange, to share, to learn from the others, from themselves, from the trainers.... main aims for me are to help participants reflect, give them energy and motivation.

My training experience is mainly related to EVS training cycle, Erasmus + Programme, project management and social entrepreneurship.

Patricia Eguía Mayor has 7 references for past work as a trainer and added 1 tools to the SALTO Toolbox.

I’ve participated in many training courses, which have been very important for the development of my professional skills, and besides I’ve always paid attention to the methodologies and the trainers, so that It has always helped me to learn new methods, but also attitudes and observed good examples of good trainers.
In the last year I’ve participated in two training courses for trainers, which have helped me a lot to improve myself in this field. I have to point out the Trainer of Trainers course organized by SALTO, where I’ve learnt a lot, not only about training, organizing courses or sessions, but also about working in international environments.
