Ans: The skills to tell a good story, being able to present confidently in front of an audience, the ability to listen carefully and to give real case studies and examples from the corporate world are essential to being a great trainer. Being able to cater to the trainee s requirements also helps to become an effective trainer as one size doesn t fit all.

Within 21 days she bagged an offer from her dream company.
