    Knowledge is one of the universal currencies with which we trade – we enrich each other with the knowledge we share and facilitate, but what are the secrets of truly effective knowledge sharing?

    I have wanted to speak to Júlio Maria Muhorro for a long time, and this topic felt like the perfect opportunity to do so. Júlio is a man of so many talents and roles, it is hard to summarise him and his career as a trainer. One of the best ways to introduce Júlio is that he is the only Mozambican listed in 2019’s 100 Most Influential Young Africans.

    Hopefully that gives you an idea of how esteemed Júlio is as a trainer, leader, and person!

    Find out about

    • How Júlio adapted after being named one of the 100 Most Influential Young Africans
    • Why personal experience and relatability is essential if we want learning to stick
    • What learners and trainers can do to strengthen knowledge retention
    • Why time for reflection is one of the most powerful tools any facilitator can have
    • What the three goals are that trainers should aim to achieve for a successful workshop
