Every meeting, retreat, or conference, whether for 3 or 3,000 people, is a unique opportunity to develop your organization. It’s an important investment of people’s time and energy – your organization’s most important resource. Getting the most from that opportunity takes careful planning and facilitation.
With more than 25 years of experience under our belt, we have designed and facilitated hundreds of successful meetings. We know that each meeting is unique and that the right design is just as important as good facilitation. The design sets you up for success … the facilitation brings it home.
We work with you by clarifying the results you want – which are usually different for each group of participants – and developing a design that will deliver those results.
We facilitate based on your custom design, adjusting based on what happens and what’s needed in the moment. Professional meeting design and facilitation ensures that you get the most value for your investment of time and resources.
I’m an expert in designing and facilitating for large groups. I know how to create meetings that work for small numbers, where everyone can engage directly with each other, and those where that’s not possible. Drawing on my investment in learning and practicing many different approaches, I bring a breadth of experience to work with you to tailor an approach that meets your specific needs and enables you to achieve your desired outcomes. As the meeting proceeds I help you adjust the agenda to adapt to what is happening in the room, and manage the more complex logistics of these larger meetings.
Here are a few examples of our work:
- Mind the Body – Unique conference that engaged scientists and policy makers to develop a plan to include mental health on the CDC agenda.
- Making it Happen – A meeting to accelerate implementation of a new organization design
