WELL OVER 2000 INTERNATIONAL EVENTS, WORKSHOPS, AND TRAINING SINCE 2002.

DISCOVER YOUR STYLE, ARTICULATE YOUR METHOD, DEEPEN YOUR CONNECTIONS

When leading groups do you struggle with:
 
  • Imaginative design
  • Fun and Engagement
  • Personality Conflict
  • Creative Risk
  • Diverse Learning Styles
  • Resistance
  • Inclusion
  • Exhaustion
  • Systemic Oppression?
  • Complex Concepts
I CAN HELP

WHEN I FACILITATE I BRING A DEEP SENSE OF SAFETY AND STRUCTURE. BALANCED WITH FLEXIBLITY, HUMOUR, AND CREATIVE RISKS.

1. EVENT FACILITATION

Workshops | Conferences | Meetings Conflict Mediation | Team Building, Brainstorming and Innovation Events Emcee | Process Design and more... 

 

I can work with your group of any size to develop a tenable group field through creativity, dialogue, and self-reflection. I have been facilitating groups since 2002. I have worked in a wide range of settings: community, corporate, youth detention, after-school, in-session, university and more. My work is focussed on learning through fun and relationship and is specifically designed to help even the least engaged participant find a sense of belonging.

 

I am happy to work with you to help move your groups through conflict and personality dynamics. I am well versed in anti-oppressive facilitation practices and can help uncover systemic barriers to relationship building.

2. GROUP TRAINING

Arts-based | Cultural Competency and Anti-Oppression | Team-Building | Facilitation Training | Emotional Intelligence  Working With Resistance | Program Design and more!  

 

I can train your team or group to deliver more effective, interesting, transformational and unforgettable events, workshops, meetings, and conferences.  I have been training facilitators since 2006 and have a strongly established reputation in many parts of the world.  My training is highly experiential, so they also function as an opportunity to strengthen bonds between group members.  I can train a mixed group of facilitators at any level from beginner to expert.  

 

I am more than happy to design a training that specifically meets the needs of your organization.  All of my training material is modular and I am very experienced in designing new curriculum. Trainings can be any length of time, sequential or stand-alone, and I can also train your staff to train new employees in the future.

3. ONE ON ONE MENTORSHIP

Support and inspiration for group facilitators

In one-on-one sessions with me you can:

 

In one-on-one sessions with I can help you to bring more creativity to your group work. We can explore your own creative practice to increase self-care, presence, and inspiration. I can support you to design empowering, transformative events and workshops.  After your workshops, I can debrief with you in order to gain insight into challenging leadership experiences.

 

Together we can discover your learning goals as a facilitator and build a program for self-development. I am more than happy to work with you for as long or as short a term as you like. Sometimes people like to hire me to walk with them all the way through a particularly challenging project, other times it’s just a one-time phone call to talk through a specific idea or dynamic. I always learn a lot from these sessions and am happy to share what I know as well as connect you with an incredible network of international facilitators.

4. ONLINE FACILITATION

Online conference emcee

Online creative facilitation

Online session and activity design

Online meetings and conferences can be engaging and memorable. I can help you host the whole conference, welcoming people, helping them feel comfortable, connected and excited to participate. We can design activities that specifically meet your needs, and match the tone you are trying to set.

I can design creative rituals that suit your team and help make online meetings less boring and more effective. Once we have co-designed activities that work for you, I can train your whole team to facilitate them, so you become self-sufficient. With a little extra time, I can also support experienced team members to design the activities themselves.

I can also support you with online mediation, negotiation and strategic decision making. I use creative techniques combined with nuanced communication practices to help you connect emotionally and authentically from screen to screen.

My workshops with Nadia were inspiring and transformative, both for me as a facilitator as well as personally. Nadia took our group to a place which not only exceeded my expectations, but also stretched my imagination in terms of what is possible in a group setting. We went deep, we pushed our edges, and then we went even deeper. She was able to take the tension in the room and use it to move us to a space I never thought was possible. I simply cannot sing her praises enough
