Editor's note
The days when training consisted solely of chalk and talk may
seem long gone, but Byron Kalies is not sure that we all
understand when to drop the chat. In Trainer's Diary this week
he looks at the benefits of knowing when to take a back seat to
let learners learn.
Elsewhere members share some fabulous tips on how to boost
traffic to learning and development intranets, games for away
days and ideas for development centres.

Best regards
