The Facilitation Academy

The Facilitation Academy offers training for ‘accidental facilitators’. That’s people who run meetings, workshops and conferences but haven’t been trained in facilitation. We offer a suite of facilitation tools based on best practice and many years of experience.

We help you to make meetings, workshops and conferences seriously worthwhile for every person in the room. We also offer shadow facilitation so you learn on the job.

Participants are satisfied, organisers reach their goals and the event serves its purpose. A Triple Win.’

“Rosemary, you are a gifted communicator, thank you for reminding me of many things I had become ‘dull’ to and sharing so much more knowledge. I facilitated an event with 50 participants the very next day and utilised many of the tips and learnings I picked up which resulted in real triple win outcomes!!!! Very exciting.”
