Meeting Facilitation


"When you’re facilitating groups you have four main responsibilities: Equalising power, drawing out views, maintaining clarity and direction, and ensuring that input is synthesised and recorded."
Tim Muirhead, Training Manual


What We Do

We facilitate meetings in a way that ensures that everyone gets heard, and moves together towards effective outcomes. We quickly establish a culture of collaboration, and deal with any tensions or difficulties respectfully and confidently. Through establishing the right structure and the right interpersonal environment, we draw out the best in people, building energy, trust and clarity.

Testimonials

"I wanted to thank you for such a great and productive forum. I’m very happy with all the information we got out of our two days, it’s given us some clear ways forward, and I know many of the stakeholders felt the same. I’ve had some great feedback from our volunteer and support agencies about this year being the best forum we’ve had to date, so thank you. Looking forward to working with you again in the future."   Government Project Coordinator
