Workshops, Away Days and Conferences

It is a well-known fact in the predictive success of workshop design…you cannot participate and facilitate and expect a quality outcome.

Expert facilitation enables the participants to focus; to discuss, explore and be appropriately challenged. It is about stimulating the debate and encouraging informed conclusions. Our approach helps leadership teams to reach their target destination, more effectively…without being too intrusive.

Top Team Workshops and Conferences are special opportunities for busy teams to spend quality time developing their vision or strategy, planning the change journey or thinking about an investment opportunity. They warrant expert facilitation.

Workshop Facilitation


How often does a leadership team take the time to lift their eyes from the day job to explore the real game changers for their business? When they do, it is important to make it count!

A workshop may be driven by the appointment of a new CEO or Head of Function or the desire of the existing leadership team to refresh the vision or strategy, change the operating model, save cost or drive a cultural transformation.

With our advice and tools, leaders can work back from what good looks like and plan a successful change journey from today.

Research has demonstrated a sponsor cannot fully participate at the same time as facilitating and it can be particularly challenging for newly appointed leaders needing to make their mark against a backdrop of ‘hidden agendas’.

Effective and skilled facilitation enables relevant and productive debate, with a purpose and within a framework. In a creative and motivating environment it helps participants to shape their vision and translate strategy into execution. It can make the single biggest difference to achieving a successful outcome.

The credibility and experience of the facilitator enables you to design and deliver a 'game-changing' intervention, measured by: the alignment and engagement of participants, the quality and value of the outputs, the reduction of risk and the optimisation of your opportunities.

By comparison with the 'prize' for getting this right, the investment is fairly modest.
