You are looking for a facilitator who enjoys working on complex issues with highly diverse groups, maybe even across languages and media? Whether it is a consultation, a joint planning process, a self-evaluation or a training – external facilitation can make huge difference.
Get in touch to find out more.
I have had the privilege of evaluating the development and use of facilitation methods and training packages, learning a great deal about approaches that have been around – and continually evolved – since the 1950s, and more recent methods supporting work in groups.
My first facilitation experiences date from 1995, at the Huairou NGO Forum (remember the World Conference on Women?) on behalf of Save the Children (UK).
Since then, I have expanded my palette of methods, learning to apply Theme-Centred Interaction (TCI) in Do No Harm Training, organising World Cafés, creating thinking environments inspired by Nancy Kline, and using the quick sequence of individual, small group and plenary action and interaction promoted by the Institute of Cultural Affairs. More recently, elements of Design Thinking and Scrum have flown into my practice.
I work with groups of various sizes and purposes, made up of people who work together every day or of complete strangers, in English, French and German and with translation.
Workshops can last just a couple of hours or come in many instalments stretched over several weeks, online and offline.
