Inclusive facilitation

December 2021 – January 2022

Take the opportunity to develop some seriously useful facilitation techniques which you can employ to deepen and challenge thinking in groups.

Our approach to facilitation encourages individuals to pool their knowledge and experience and then build on this resource to develop creative shared solutions.

You will take away new skills and ideas which can be applied anywhere to create positive group interactions, even when unpacking challenging issues.

“Fast, exciting and experiential – excellently structured course with access to great expertise, ideas and resources”
