Experience

We've worked around the world, from San Francisco to the Solomon Islands - with organisations from businesses to non-profits, from universities to ad agencies. Clients have included the BBC, VicRoads, Fitch Design, Oxford University, Johnson & Johnson, World Vision and Save the Children.

We run innovation workshops, leadership development work, strategic change, customer research and consultation programmes. We also train facilitators and creative leaders, offering both public workshops and in-house training.

Humanity

Human beings are amazing. Too often, meetings are the opposite. To bring out the best in people, we have to let go of rigid control and give each participant a sense of agency. We have to be open to the unexpected. When planning events, we help you to leave enough space and flexibility for surprise and discovery. 

Craft

We use a wide range of processes, including many we've invented ourselves, to help groups get the most out of their time together. However, we'd say the most important thing is our ability to respond flexibly to what is happening live, in the moment. For us, facilitation is a craft rather than a science - our clients come back to us because they know we can be trusted to bring presence, curiosity and spontaneity to the most difficult challenges. Have a chat with us to find out more.

Facilitating international groups of activists over several days is a tough gig. But Johnnie does it brilliantly, with passion, humility and commitment. That’s why we keep asking him back.

You can quote me on that :)
