Description

IAF England & Wales

Join us to celebrate and promote the power of facilitation, and to connect, network and learn with other IAF facilitators & friends from across England & Wales and beyond!

For International Facilitation Week 2019 we extend to our annual all-day all England & Wales networking & learning meetup to two full days of annual conference on the theme "The Power and Practice of Facilitation".

What you can expect

You can expect a diverse range of highly interactive, peer-led parallel sessions to choose from - common to previous years' annual all-day meetups, and our regular afternoon networking & learning meetups #IAFMeetup around the country.

Previous years' sessions have included:

In addition, this year, you can expect:

  • an opening keynote session on Friday morning, with a panel of speakers sharing stories of the power of facilitation from the client perspective

  • a facilitated 'Open Space' session on Saturday, for participants to raise and address topics of their own, and/or to attend repeats of a few of the most popular of Friday's parallel sessions

  • a prize raffle on Saturday afternoon including free facilitation kit from Pinpoint Facilitation, a free Insights Profile from Steve Lloyd CPF and Lumina Spark Personality Portrait from Gary Austin CPF, free copies of Change Management for Sustainable Development from Penny Walker CPF and Leader Language LLQi from Neil Fogarty, free ToP facilitation training from Martin Gilbraith CPF, and more!

  • networking dinner & drinks on Thursday & Friday evenings

  • cake (obvs)

Details of this year's programme will be included here as it is confirmed over the summer. See also the full programme, photos & comments on last year's "All England & Wales International Facilitation Week networking & learning day".

The purpose of International Facilitation Week #FacWeek is to showcase the power of facilitation to both new and existing audiences and to create a sense of community among facilitators and their groups worldwide.

International Facilitation Week is 7-13 October in 2019 - however we have scheduled our annual #FacWeek event in the 3rd week of October as usual.
