Facilitating and Networking




We can support your forums, workshops and events by providing trained, experienced facilitators. Having an external facilitator can make group meetings and events easier, particularly when the subject matter can be controversial or where there is conflict. A facilitator can act as a trusted and neutral outside voice, keeping discussion focused and allowing the group to reach a consensus.

Our facilitators will work with you in advance to understand the purpose and desired outcomes of your meeting, and then will support a group of people to help them have a discussion, come to agreement, or plan for the future..
