Tailored Facilitation Skills training program delivered on your premises

Delivering workshop facilitation skills training as an in-house program is economical and effective.

By tailoring the training experience, we boost your return on investment:

  • Content. In facilitation skills training the program needs to be tailored to the level of the participants. Experienced facilitators will need focus on advanced facilitation techniques. Conversely, for beginning facilitators we’ll tailor the program to build the essentials first.
  • Duration. We will design deliver facilitation skills training of the duration that suits your budget and availability best: from a one-hour presentation or Skill Shot to a multiple-day program and everything in between.
  • Location. We deliver our programs across Australia and abroad.

We also coach individuals – a fast and effective way to build facilitation skills.
