To encourage people with an interest in facilitation to meet together in London & South East England for networking, learning and mutual support.
Who should join
Anybody with an interest in group process facilitation, including facilitators and others who use or commission facilitation. Members of IAF (the International Association of Facilitators) and non-members are equally welcome.
Facilitation is the art of "making things easier" for a group to achieve its desired results. Every meeting or process that is facilitated has an impact on the individuals and the groups of which they are a part. Good facilitation can change the way people think and act, and ultimately support them to positively change the world around them.
Facilitation is relatively new as a profession, but it is emerging in ever new and diverse settings. Some facilitators run their own companies, providing facilitation services on contract, some work full time as facilitators in companies, universities, or non profit organisations. Many people do facilitation without thinking or describing themselves as facilitators.
Through these meetups, let's all come together and make this group a hub of knowledge sharing and co-creation!
IAF England & Wales promotes the group to IAF members and covers group & venue costs. ICA:UK promotes the meetup group to its 'ToP' facilitation trainers & trainees. Please contact us if you may be interested in sponsoring the group yourself.
