Guest Speaking & Workshops
Are you seeking a dynamic yet warm and intuitive facilitator? I specialise in World-cafe-style meetings, community engagement processes, open source conferences and retreats. I tailor my approach to your group and available resources.
I am also available for guest speaking, panels and leading workshops on a variety of topics.
- Social change technology / Theory U, leading from the future as it emerges
- Purpose, principles and practices, writing a purpose statement / identifying the practices that foster a generative tone and culture
- Leadership, particularly grass-roots leadership and social movements, including volunteer-based approaches
- Community Development principles and applications, activating the conditions for transformative social change
- Artful and meaningful ways of engaging with your community through animating meaningful encounters
Are you wanting to initiate or reinvigorate a program / workshop / event / retreat / immersive learning journey?
My approach is that of a curator, joining the dots to create experiences that are greater than the sum of their parts. Tapping into my expertise in open space and social technologies, together with whole systems thinking, I guide collaborative, co-creation processes for sustained outcomes and maximum impact. I specialise in designing and hosting World Cafes for the purpose of exploring ideas, developing projects, expanding possibilities, through a cross-pollinating format that draws out the freshest thinking – tapping into the collective intelligence and experience of the whole group.
Working with existing teams within organisations I use a strengths-based approach and deep listening tools such as stakeholder interviews and shadowing, focus groups, open space tools and creative installations to maximise broad engagement, purpose and values driven conversations that generate previously undiscovered possibilities.
Coaching & Retreats
Are you ready to journey deeper into your personal and professional vision? Are you looking for an experience that is refreshing and uplifting while being informative and practical? Do you have a particular challenge with your work or team that you would like to focus on and turn into a moment of growth and opportunity? Tapping into my experience and knowledge about social process, systems thinking and using co-creative techniques, I provide support in uncovering your own inner-knowing while honing your skills to work with your teams / communities in ways that bring out the best in everyone. Typically beginning with the big picture, I can support you in refining your purpose and identifying your principles and the practices that see them really come alive. Using a strengths-based approach, my aim is to animate what is wanting to emerge within and through you in your work and in the world.
