Facilitation

We're an international partnership based in Cambridge and Melbourne. We help our clients create events that genuinely engage people.

• Conferences
• Management awaydays
• Team building
• Retreats
• Workshops

We’ve worked around the world, from San Francisco to the Solomon Islands - with organisations from broadcasters to advertising agencies, innovation consultancies to non-profits. 

Clients have included the BBC, VicRoads, Fitch Design, Oxford University, Johnson & Johnson, World Vision and Save the Children.

Aliveness

It costs a huge amount of time and money to get a group of people into a room together. Don’t waste the investment doing things that could be done more efficiently by other means. We make the meeting less predictable and more human.

It's very easy for meetings to follow rituals that appear comforting but don't bring out the diversity of thoughts and feelings of participants. Familiar methods often put people into trances or leave them reaching for their devices. Too often, the coffee breaks are more interesting than the official sessions.

Below the surface boredom, however, there is always tremendous aliveness. We aim to bring that energy to the surface. That's only partly about having a range of techniques. It's also about our presence and spontaneity as facilitators. Read more about our approach.

Facilitating an international group of activists for four days running is a tough gig. But Johnnie did a terrific job, with good humour, humility and enthusiasm. The feedback from participants was resoundingly positive. And I’m really looking forward to working with him again at our next summit.
