Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I jumped in as a trainer on short-notice, with the task to focus on harvesting outcomes. I was then an equal part of the trainer's team (we were three in total), facilitated roughly 25% of the activities and contributed to the trainer's meetings, the implementation and adaptions of the programme.

I worked on this training for 5 days as a full time trainer.
