“I really liked your facilitation style and manner of facilitating the group, Bill. I learned a lot, not only from the content, but also from your own style.  I may even steal a couple of little activities that you used to use in some of my own facilitation.” Alison Rewald, Community Corrections

I feel very comfortable attending your courses as I like your relaxed, open and non-judgemental style as a facilitator and I think you explain the content in a way that is easy to understand and relate to in every day life - on both professional and personal levels.” Pauline Bonnici, Qld Health

 

“You obviously have a talent for bringing out the best in people and helping us learn better ways of going about things through your knowledge, experience, facilitation and sense of humour.” Tameeka Sainsbury, Pacific Pines State High School

bullet

If you have some experience of facilitating groups but have not undertaken any specific facilitation skills training, you'd probably be best to attend our 2-day "Fundamental Facilitation" skills clinic first.

bullet

Some of the tools and processes we cover in Fundamental Facilitation are quite sophisticated and the clinic with its accompanying toolkit is usually comprehensive enough to cater for different participant skills from most basic through intermediate to quite advanced. We do this by adjusting the program as we go, selecting and focusing on particular tools participants feel they most want to explore or master.

bullet

This Advanced Facilitation clinic assumes participants have sound facilitation experience and are comfortable using the range of tools covered in our Fundamental Facilitation program.

bullet

By all means call us before you register to talk over your current capabilities and development directions and we’ll be able to advise which program is more suited to your needs...
