Apples to Apples...
We want you to have the best and most suitable program possible. If you are having trouble choosing a company for your program and are looking at comparing Tirian to other companies please consider the following:
All Tirian facilitators have a wealth of corporate experience and or an educational /academic background. Our facilitators are hand picked and bring with them their own experience and are trained by Tirian. We are only prepared to grow as a company at the rate at which we can find good facilitators.
Although cheaper in terms of paid out money, we believe that games for the sake of it (often perceived as childish) are not a good use of a companies resources and participants' time. Experiential learning is a skill both in design and delivery that engages every participant and helps them internalize their learning so they can act on it.
Programs and sessions must be designed to be relevant and internalized in a way that the learning's can be used in the workplace.
At Tirian we design all our own programs. By designing our own programs we understand the content and how it applies to the workplace.
Tirian facilitators have worked in over 20 courtiers to more than 30 different nationalities. We understand both 'East' and 'West' cultures and area able to use examples from the local cultures we are working in. In a mixed team (example Asia Pacific) of multi speaking participants where English may be a second language our facilitators can work with small countries groups to help them understand the content. Our facilitators are fluent in English, Chinese, Bahasa and Greek.
Its easy to convince and motivate the 'convert' but in most cases what holds back a team are the cynics. These are the hardest but most important people to motivate in a session. A poor facilitator may not be able to reach this type of person and polarize the team in the process.
Tirian does not do mass programs. We hand pick a limited number of clients each month that we will work with to ensure that each client gets personalized and exceptional service. Tirian is large enough to be able to offer a international standard program but we keep our overheads as low as possible to ensure we hand on the value to the client.
Tirian has been established in Australia since 1990 and in Asia since 1997. We now have teams/representation in most major hubs in the region. We like to work in teams when presenting ensuring that the team dynamic we have will be able to reach all participants, and should illness occur, our team is well positioned to continue to cover the event.
offer their directors?
Andrew and Gaia Grant are know internationally for their creative ideas and quality of their unique programs. They are in high demand round the world as keynote speakers and facilitators as well as consulting about education to other companies. They have written several books on education and have been interviewed in the media including the Asian Wall Street Journal, BBC, ABC-TV and the Australian Financial Review. They spend much of their time now writing and designing new programs.
Tirian's core business is to develop leaders and their teams which we do through experiential learning, business simulations, seminars and keynote talks. This is all we do and we do it well. We are not an agency, event organizer, consultancy firm or entertainment company.
