Profile details

I specialise in facilitation and draw on my background in the natural sciences and arts. I design workshops, conferences and training to bring them to life. What matters to me is going beyond how we usually do things ā€“ going out on my edge; encouraging others to their edge; making discoveries and breakthroughs. I enjoy connecting people and ideas, looking for patterns, and finding new ways to relate to each other. I am excited and enthusiastic about what I do. There are many different styles of facilitation and training. My style is to break patterns ā€“ to do the unexpected, to respond to what is happening right now, and to work with the group to discover new approaches to the work that matters for them. And I love to play ā€“ with ideas, and with how we work and approach difficult situations. Improvisation is a constant source of inspiration, as is nature, play and the surprising things that people say and do. Iā€™m researching the role of applied improvisation in preparing people to respond in uncertainty, particularly disaster response. I offer training in creative facilitation, insanely greta slideshow presentations, open space technology, and participatory evaluation.
