How often do you find yourself facilitating conversations, focus groups and meetings?  How do you rapidly build psychological safety for participants when meeting online?  How do you ensure everyone is heard, their contributions valued, and unique perspectives respected?  How do you tap into innovative ideas and suggestions?   

To facilitate is to make something possible or easier.  As a leader in Public Health you will often find yourself in the facilitator role.  You will have developed your own facilitation style over the years when chairing meetings, collaborating with teams, engaging stakeholders and influencing others.   

This event is designed to further develop your facilitation skills through experience, practiceinquiry and reflection.  We will delve into and experiment with a variety of modelstheories and structures to equip you with new skills and insights which will help you to create even more inspiring and productive events, meetings and conversations.   

Your facilitators will model techniques, reflect on their impact and explore when these can be applied in your work-setting. This event will be interactive, fun and reflective. 

The following agenda is for indicative purposes only.  The content, flow and exact timings will be agreed in partnership between you and the facilitators to ensure you get the most out of the day.
