Joimove Live Training, November 2017
It’s great to be able to report that Joimove International held another successful and inspiring training session in Glasgow in November. Here’s a quick wrap up of the weekend’s events:
Babywearing Peer Supporter Training
For the first half of the weekend, all of our attendees were treated to an amazing day of learning from Born to Carry. Under the guidance of Born to Carry’s Anne and Emma, Joimove Instructors and Trainees studied wraps, materials, anatomy, babywearing safety, and more. At the end of this intensive workshop, we’re proud to say that every attendee achieved his or her Babywearing Peer Supporter Certification. Congratulations everyone!
Babywearing Dance Refresher Training
Safe, joyful babywearing has always been at the heart of Joimove as a world leader in Babywearing Dance Safety Programmes. Throughout the training weekend, attendees were able to practice their dance and dance leadership skills, studied new ways to use available space while leading groups of dancers, and were introduced to new moves and routines for a variety of dance styles by Joimove’s Founder and professional dancer, Selen Yilmaz.
Business Planning and Development
Success for small businesses comes from thinking ahead, learning from others, and planning for the future. Founder Selen Yilmaz led a vital session on strategic planning for success in business that was then adapted in small groups to suit each Instructor’s and Trainee’s individual goals for the future. Attendees learned from one another, shared their thoughts and plans, and bonded in their mutual goals of growing successful businesses while making their own communities and the Joimove community better.
Joimove Flash Mob
One of the highlights for everyone was having the opportunity to participate in a Joimove Flashmob in front of the historic Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, Scotland. Dressed in their new Joimove Instructor T-shirts, Instructors and Trainees took turns leading one another (and some onlookers!) in original dance routines. Everyone had a lot of fun while learning from one another and bringing joy to the gallery’s visitors.
Great news! We have upcoming live trainings already in the works for early 2018! Istanbul, Turkey: 3-4 February 2018 and London, England: 1-4 March 2018.
