It can be helpful to have an external facilitator to guide you through a process when you have an important or difficult decision to make, or when there's tension between people in your group. We can suggest new ways forward where things are stuck, support you through the tense and tricky moments, and help you make progress on the issues.
We facilitate meetings in a broad range of situations. We can support you with:
Visioning sessions: Articulating a shared vision for the future, where everyone’s voice counts.
Strategic and campaign planning: Developing a strategy for your project or campaign, using innovative tools to help you get creative.
Difficult decisions: Finding a way forward when tensions are running high or when there is a lot at stake.
Organisational development: Developing plans for a big change of direction or improving your effectiveness.
Reviews and evaluations: Reviewing progress on your project, or evaluating events and projects.
Team building: Building strong relationships and developing good communication between members of your team.
Events and conferences: Planning or facilitating a complex event.

Conflict is a natural and inevitable part of being in a group. It can bring up a lot of painful feelings, including fear, anger and hopelessness, for everyone involved. However, conflict, tensions and disagreements can offer an opportunity to grow as individuals and as groups, if supported well.
Many groups struggle to work through conflict, and this often limits their capacity. We believe that handling conflict well can actually strengthen a group.
We have training and experience in facilitating group conflicts, as well as conflict between a small number of people. Our approach in mediation and conflict facilitation is to listen to and include what’s important to each person in the group, help you develop better relationships and find creative ways forward that work for everyone.
We can also support your group to develop your own process for dealing with your conflicts.
