Workshop facilitation

Make the best use of your team’s and/or client’s limited time with workshop facilitation. Move your project to the next stage with great ideas, clarity on what to do next, and an energised and motivated team ready to take action.

Are you planning a:

  • strategy day
  • project kick-off meeting
  • team gathering
  • brainstorming session
  • meeting to revive a project that got stuck?

Workshop facilitation is great for all of these, and any meeting where you need to bring people together to gather information, generate ideas or discuss opinions.

Workshops can be run as half-day, full day or multiple day sessions.

Why hire a workshop facilitator?

Bring out the best ideas in your team

With a strong focus on encouraging creativity and collaboration, great workshop facilitation makes sure everyone gets involved discussions with the opportunity to contribute their ideas.

Make significant progress in a short space of time

You’ll be surprised how much you can get done with a facilitated workshop. You can often get more done in a day than you can in a week of discussions and meetings. The experience is enjoyable and noticeably productive for people attending.

Concentrate on generating great ideas, not time-keeping and note-taking

Using a workshop facilitator means you can get fully involved in ideation and bring your opinions without worrying about the details or how to keep everyone engaged during the workshop.

Turn your ideas into action

With workshop facilitation, there’s a perfect balance between creativity and productivity, to make sure that the group achieve the intended outcomes and the next steps are clear for everyone.

"The workshops with Alison offered a huge amount of clarity.  She had an ability to isolate each idea and build it into a model, which was refreshing.  It was surprising how much we got done! The workshops pack a big punch".
