Do you have to organise meetings or events to enable people to be briefed, discuss issues, solve problems, prioritise, make decisions or plan ahead?

Great facilitators have a treasure trove of clever structures and ‘know how' to turn potentially boring or chaotic meetings into enjoyable interactive events that get to the result you need by the end of the allotted time.

What you'll learn

  • How to create the right atmosphere right from the start
  • Why a different room set-up will get you different results
  • A fantastic toolkit that will enable you to pull out the ‘right tool for the job' even when you have to think on your feet
  • A mechanism to enable large groups to assess their level of agreement with complex decisions
  • How to make sure everyone understands what's being discussed and agreed
  • A simple, easy to use tool  to help groups analyse complex information  together
  • The 4-Step method to enable a competitive group to collaborate on a solution that everyone can commit to
  • How to filter and prioritise simply and easily, even with a large group
  • How to keep people's attention even when not everyone is able to contribute on a topic
  • Four questions to ask to manage disagreements
  • What to do when people ‘misbehave' and how to manage disruption before, during and after the meeting

Who is it for?

Anyone who has responsibility for facilitating meetings or events and wants to gain confidence, increase their repertoire or address some facilitation challenges.
