Facilitation / Mediation
A good facilitator, in my view, is not only responsible for securing active participation from all the individuals in the room, but also for guiding those individuals with different cultures, languages, personalities and work styles to a common outcome. As your facilitator, I will plan & desgin, guide and manage your group to ensure the objectives are met at the end of the session.
Let me guide you through this process and come out with a smile!

A lot is said and done around Strategic planning but really, it is an art in itself. A proven way to success is getting an outsider in. With clear goals and shared values, we support the process and professionally guide you through the entire planning process.
Or, you have different solutions to a common problem. Or, your team needs to make a desiscion that will have a baring on the future of your NGO. Or, you need a creative brainstorm to come up with ideas for the next steps. Or, your group has gone through an emotional time and need to re-group and focus...
Are you organising a donor round table? A partner conference? A celebration of your achievements? Your annual staff day? Are you involved in event management? Or maybe the board and the fundraising staff have dissimilar ideas to advance the resource mobilisation of your organisation. We are your independent facilitator to support the path to reconciliation and consolidation.
Jolan says “Empathy is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within the other being's frame of reference, i.e., the capacity to place oneself in another's position. Empathy is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another and feelings with the heart of another.”
