Training and Facilitation

Training and Facilitation for Organisations

    • Do you have a particular issue with your team that you’d like to address through training?
    • Do you need to organise a very particular training module you haven’t found anywhere else?
    • Are you looking for some new and exciting workshop topics to deliver to your team?
    • Do you and your team need some space to thrash out an important issue thats holding you back?
    • Do you have some promising staff members thats you really want to develop?


Well if so, allow me to introduce myself!

My name is Sharon Hughes and I am a Workshop Leader, Trainer, Facilitator and Coach. If you are interested in Developing a Bespoke Workshop or Training Event for your team I’d love to chat.

Working directly with you I can tailor a programme, class, session or workshop on a range of activities, depending on your needs locally.

As well as bespoke sessions I can also offer a range of topics that I love working with and that really engages people


I have over a decades experience delivering bespoke Training for various organisations.

As well as developing tailored workshops to suit an organisations needs, I also develop bespoke workshops on topics I come across in my Coaching. Some of my interests include:

Who I’ve worked with

Services Card

If you would like a quick reference to my style as a trainer as well as a snapshot of some of the workshops I could offer your staff, please download a copy of my Services Card by just clicking HERE.


Sometimes a workshop is a great way to start a conversation that needs to be had that may be having trouble surfacing. As well as being a Trainer, after almost 20 years working in Politics I am also an accomplished Facilitator.

Whether you need a workshop designed to elicit a difficult conversation, or you just want someone to oversee the process, I am happy to work with you on this. We can meet in advance and you can explain your issue and I can recommend some options on how to proceed. Please contact me at for more info.


Coaching can be delivered as a group process if you are working on a big team goal, or on a one-to-one basis.

One-to-one coaching opportunities provided for your staff are amazing for staff morale. Sessions can cover anything from planning for a Maternity Leave, designing a 5-year career plan or a retirement plan, working on a Personal Networking plan, anything at all.

I can work with you to arrange coaching for individual staff or I also offer a day rate where I can see a number of staff within the allotted time.

Self-Managing Anxiety Workshop

I screen recorded a copy of a workshop I delivered in 2018 on tips for self-managing your Anxiety.

The soft-spokeness is due to the sleeping child!

A little bit about me as a Workshop Leader and Trainer

My most core value is balance; And I live that through all aspects of my life.

I am a Chief Executive Officer of a not-for-profit organisation based in Dublin. I can deliver training on many aspects of Career and Professional Development, helping your team to set big career goals, developing networking strategies, consider planning for retirement and money management, talk about teamwork, how to run a successful event or how to outsource; any of these ‘corporate’ topics.

AND I am a qualified and practising Life Coach. I am a woman and mother who is committed to living an emotionally and mentally healthy life in a way that service me and my family. I am committed to achieving financial freedom for my family and want to retire to the country. I can deliver workshops for your team on the ‘softer’ skills like vision boards, manifesting, dealing with anxiety, setting emotional boundaries, managing their limited time etc.

People are never one thing, my style of training not only acknowledges this but actively works to include both parts into the workshop.

My experience as a Workshop Leader and Trainer

I discovered a passion for delivering workshops in my early 20’s. At the time, most of what I delivered was completing in-house training to officers and staff, but I soon received requests and invites from other organisations in the not-for-profit sector. In the last decade I have delivered workshops and facilitated for the The Wheel, DIT Societies, IMPACT Trade Union, Union of Students in Ireland, Dublin City University Societies Office, Jobnet Jobseekers programme and Women for Election, to name a few.

My Qualifications

I hold a Masters in Political Communications from Dublin City University as well as a Postgraduate Qualification in Events Management and Public Relations.

I am committed to my work as a Trainer and Workshop Leader and  I have trained further, receiving my Train the Trainer FETAC certification as well as qualifying to become a registered member of the Teachers Council of Ireland.

I am a qualified and insured Business, Life and Career Coach.

My Personal Style as a Trainer

We’ve all been to those workshops, the ones where you sit for hours and you’re not quite sure what it was about?

That’s not my style.

I value people’s time and attention. I aim to give a valid overview of a topic, make some local information connections, engage the audience in exercises, and leave them with clear tasks and actions to complete. I also value time in discussion with the participants as much as training, most often this is where an issue surfaces.


I value:

Clear communication




Understanding of local environment
