Living sustainably, providing equity of access and managing travel risks presents challenges for global collaborations and consultations. With imagination, creative design and purposeful facilitation, you can meet, talk, share ideas and work out ways of working for the future both in person and using digital platforms. Talk to us about virtual and hybrid workshops that are engaging and support collaboration.
"We approached them with a blank sheet of paper in terms of the event design but with clear goals about what we wanted to achieve. They took time to understand what we wanted. You could always have an open chat with them and they would come up with practical suggestions"
Do your meetings seem to last too long and with too little result? Do you have away days that never address the real issues? Would you benefit from a neutral person getting involved to work with you to get your meetings to be time efficient and engaging?
"The preparation that went into this day was evident and instrumental in ensuring an efficient analysis of our progress to date and steps for the future. It was well run and timings kept to"
Conferences are a great opportunity for people to get to know each other and make useful connections but can be presentation heavy. We get people involved from the start in breakout groups, interactive discussions, activities and fireside chats so that the conference is engaging, interesting, fun and purposeful for everyone.
"The facilitated brainstorming was fantastic. I have been to a few of these and always think they are a bit dull but this one was great" (Validate Conference)
Centre for Facilitation facilitate collaborative, innovation labs for the academic and business communities, resulting in radical idea generation and the development of collaborative communities. Our Anglo/India Innovation Lab generated 9 innovative project proposals to tackle the challenge of Anti-Microbial Resistance in India.
Our facilitators can offer virtual, in person or hybrid processes for organisations and project teams who want to work collaboratively and to innovate and develop creative ideas. We facilitate meetings, conferences and events that will encourage dialogue and engagement. We step in when teams have got stuck and need professional help to get back to consensus. We work across the UK and Globally with groups as small as 4 to groups of 100
Creating clear plans for the future with your management teams and boards is vital. You will need to address uncertainty and a future vision constructed for a world which is rapidly shifting around us. Having a facilitator to provide structure, to get everyone engaged in the conversation and to ensure you get something to take away to build on for the future is worth the expense!
Facilitation makes for more productive teams and meetings. Facilitation will speed up the process from realising there is a problem to working out a solution.
The energy created in workshops and meetings will quickly make changes happen in your organisation. Individuals will be enthused and take ownership of ideas, groups tackle new challenges and find fresh ways of working together. Suddenly working together with others becomes hassle free and productive
