I was first introduced to 4MAT when… a flier came across my desk that promised a simple, practical and effective way to improve my teaching – it was just what I was looking for and after the first round of training, I was hooked! Since that happened nearly 20 years ago it obviously hit the mark for me.

My favourite 4MAT moment is… every time I watch the delight for a teacher or a trainer as all the pieces of the training come together and they understand the simplicity and flexibility of the model.

Working as a 4MAT trainer is… still the part of my role that I love the most. It is incredibly rewarding to be able to share this model (that I have found to be so powerful) with others and to hear about how it has made a difference for them.

I am still using 4MAT because… I have never found anything else that can replace it. I have been exposed to many other models of learning, but most of them are just the 4MAT model with different words.

I am always being asked… about where I get my shoes and jewellery!

I get excited about… helping others to improve on what they do because I know that means that their learners are reaping the benefits as well.

My friends describe me as… organised, a perfectionist …maybe that is enough clues?
