Event Details

Practical tools to design and lead effective meetings – 2 days

Participatory Strategic Planning, February 2013 in London

“The ‘Meetings That Work’ training ticked all the boxes. It was very interesting to hear the theory and useful to have to put it in practice during the many exercises. The proof of that is that I use the templates and ideas from this course on a weekly basis. It improves planning and preparing for one of our 20 meetings (annually). Feedback on the improved meeting format is excellent”

Peter Van Roste, General Manager CENTR

This course, in English, is scheduled in partnership with Social Platform, the largest platform of European rights and value-based NGOs working in the social sector; and in partnership with ICA:UK, the participation & development charity. It is scheduled back-to-back with ToP Group Facilitation Methods (May 14-15) to allow 2 or 4 days of training at once. If you are interested in the course but do not find dates to suit you, please contact me for alternatives.

IAF endorsed trainingPreparing for CPF certification? Meetings That Work, Group Facilitation Methods and Facilitating Client Collaboration together comprise the new ICA Associates ToP Facilitation Essentials Program that has been endorsed by the International Association of Facilitators for those preparing to become an IAF Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF).
