tapping into collective wisdom

We are living in times when humanity must come together to figure our way through the many complex issues we currently face. I’m a firm believer that we can only do this by creating spaces where we can truly listen to each other, tap into collective wisdom and get on with what we feel is our role in moving to a situation that feels better for all of us.

With so many of us collaborating across physical distances, good hosting and facilitation are crucial to ensuring warm, safe, vibrant and engaging spaces where we can do our best work together, whether online or off.

Some services I offer:

Values, mission, vision articulation processes

All the information about what your organisation is about, the values it holds and where it’s heading towards, is held within its members. Any values, vision and mission process that aims to provide more than a document no one opens, must be a team process. Often working in partnership with colleagues, I design and host professional processes that dive deep and give form to what can help know what is here and guide the way forward.

Strategy defining sessions

Whether you are working on your own or in a team of 200, formulating a plan can seem like a daunting task. Leaning into coaching as well as facilitation, I have helped organisations figure out their priorities, make sound plans for the coming months and dig themselves out of a pressing problem.

Design and/or hosting of workshops, meetings and gatherings

Sourcing of speakers and organisation of panel discussions, engaging workshops, board gatherings, debates, community meetings and more. I can work alone but love collaborating.

Mentoring & facilitation for video interviews

Bring out your best on video and tell the story that is best suited for the cause. I offer mentoring sessions to prepare for video interviews as well as live facilitation while recorded to help guide interviewees through the process. I have worked with farmers, artists, professionals from various fields and CEOs including those who struggle with presenting themselves favourably.
