Event Description

A unique day of interactive and participatory learning to build your confidence as facilitator or workshop leader.

This will be unlike training you’ve experienced before – you’ll be challenged, engaged and hopefully excited while experiencing the power of deep facilitation.

You will develop your skills and attitudes as a facilitator in working with diverse groups and using participatory processes. We'll look at what it means to be in the mind-set of a facilitator rather than to just ‘do facilitation’. The day will also build your confidence and give you a solid basis on which to develop your own style and techniques.

A day of participatory and experiential learning that will cover:

  • What it means to be a facilitator
  • Support groups to recognise and work with their power dynamics
  • Understand and deal with 'problem' behaviour
  • Cultivate empathy and the appreciation of differences
  • How to frame a group's needs
  • To use questions effectively to draw out the experience of a group
  • Using non-hierarchical processes

Who should attend this course?
The event will benefit anyone working with groups of people, in the role of facilitator, in formal or informal settings. Whether a novice wanting to start out with a deep grounding, or an experienced facilitator wishing to develop their current understanding and practice, the course will provide a valuable insight into good facilitation. (If you're looking for more practical workshop/facilitation skills our basic 'Facilitation Training' may be more suitable.)

About the Organiser


Talk Action
Provides everything from a speaker on a sustainability issue to the event management for a major green festival or conference. Also runs specialist courses on climate change communication and can supply everything from solar power generators, pedal-powered cinemas and recycled art workshops to inspirational speakers on green and social issues.

Talk Action values social justice and environmental sustainability. We promote equality, opportunity, diversity and a healthy environment for communities in both urban and rural settings.

We think quality of life is more important than quantity of income. So we operate on a non-hierarchical/cooperative system and question all types of economic, environmental and social injustice.
