Facilitation Master Class

Learn tips and tricks from two master facilitators

In this fun, fast-paced, hands-on workshop, you’ll sharpen your facilitation skills through practice and peer feedback. Daniel and I will lead you through various methods, teaching why and how they work. You’ll get facilitation tips and tricks and learn how to incorporate these techniques into everyday meetings. You’ll end the day with a new way of looking at facilitating and the confidence to approach it with renewed energy and optimism.

It’s not just about a bigger toolbox, but developing internal resources that you can draw on to be a master facilitator.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The workshop will be activity-based with facilitation simulations and collaborative sessions. You’ll have the chance to try new facilitation approaches in a safe space.

We won’t just talk at you — you’ll learn through doing, work with other participants, and get feedback.

There will be plenty of time for Q&A, so you can learn from our experience running hundreds of workshops at some of the world’s largest enterprises.

Sales Sprints: 

Design Thinking and Facilitation for Sales

WHY 

Sales discovery is slow and inefficient...it’s easy to go down the wrong path and not always clear where real possibilities lie. Rather than spend weeks on interviews and synthesis, bring all your key stakeholders together for a powerful facilitated session. A Sales Sprint can jump-start your sales process or amplify your sales enablement efforts.

WHO

Early career professionals looking to learn the essential best practices that give a foundation for rapid enhancement.

Professional sales teams who want to apply facilitation and best in class design thinking tools to their approach

Senior professionals who want to amplify their existing skills through practice in a safe environment while gaining familiarity with the latest tools.

Facilitators who want to apply professional sales skills and frameworks in order to close more clients.
