The Art of Guiding is FEG’s two day course on communication skills for tourist guides and as such meets the requirements for a communication seminar as stipulated by CEN standard EN15565:2008. The course is highly interactive to allow sharing of best practice and is of interest to all practicing tourist guides. Join us to go back to basics in analysing the main elements of the practical guiding skills and communication techniques we use in our daily work as tourist guides. The course also offers an opportunity to explore tools for thinking and acting creatively in a fast, efficient and effective way.
