Event description

Description

Irene Beautyman will be delivering a 'Facilitation Skills' workshop, introducing participants to the basics of facilitation and what you can do support effective discussions.

This workshop will give participants:

  • the skills to facilitate group discussions effectively
  • the confidence to deal with challenging questions
  • the opportunity to practice using effective facilitation techniques.

Attendees will learn how to

  • prevent someone taking over the discussion
  • encourage people to talk if they are not contributing
  • say that the questions someone is asking or the point they are making do not relate to the topic
  • to react when someone is being argumentative or aggressive
    stop people from talking over each other
  • to bring the discussion back to topic when it drifts to something else
  • encourage participants to focus on the topic to be discussed
  • end a session at the appropriate time if people continue talking

Come along and develop the skills essential for many of our volunteer roles.
