Are you responsible for leading meetings, workshops or community conversations and want to make sure you’re doing it well?


Do you facilitate group conversations where you need to ensure open, respectful  discussion, collaboration and consensus?


Would you like some practical tools for making sure that any group discussions are productive and ultimately lead to action?


The Facilitator's Toolkit is designed for anyone who is responsible for facilitating group conversations--whether you call them meetings, workshops, engagement sessions or planning days! Running over two full days (9am – 4pm), with lots of hands-on interaction, this workshop will give you the tools, skills and confidence you need to do your job well.

In this two-day workshop, you will discover:

How to facilitate the right conversation, in the right way.
Great facilitation requires a well-thought sequence of discussions. Learn how to plan a step-by-step workshop that ensures participants are taken on a logical journey; unpacking what they need to know, discuss, explore and decide.

Simple tools for encouraging open discussion, collaboration and consensus.
There is more to a workshop than small group discussions, flipcharts and sticky dots. In this workshop you will gather a bunch of new activities, tools, tips and techniques for creating a workshop that is both engaging and productive.

Practical techniques for managing workshop challenges and disruptions.
Not everyone arrives at a workshop with an open mind and ready to engage. Discover techniques for managing challenging behaviour, disrupting power dynamics, and keeping the workshop on-time and on-track.

PLUS learn how to apply all these ideas in an online workshop too!

This workshop is highly interactive and extremely practical. Participants will leave with a toolkit of activities, processes, and how-tos that they can use in a range of situations.

It doesn't matter what your job title is--or what sector you are in--if you are responsible for facilitating group conversations of any kind, this workshop is for you.
