Facilitation is the art of enabling groups of people to realise outcomes. A skilled facilitator can help enhance the process in terms of quality of outcome proposed, reducingtime to agreement, and increasing commitment to outcome. If your event is worth gathering people together, it is worth investing some time, and process to ensure that best use is being made of the expensive human resource that is present.

The process followed:

Pre-event  - meet with project sponsor, explore the situation / objectives / people issues to be able to return with a proposal for the event which will answer the needs proposed. Advise / make logistical arrangements that are required.

At event  - establish the atmosphere, support and maintain group focus and energy towards achieving outcomes through a variety of interventions, inter-personal skills and presence. Particular attention is directed towards outcome planning and commitment to best support future success.

Post-event  - material and interventional support to ensure agreed actions are implemented and that the event has fulfilled it's purpose.
