After a well deserved holiday break, IAF Facilitators & Friends is back with a new initiative for 2019, the IAF Belgium Book Club!
What book(s) or articles helped you on your journey to become a great facilitator? What are the hidden gems in your office or book cupboard, that you'd like to share with fellow facilitators?
Or the other way round... curious to hear where your fellow facilitators go to get that extra help, that little touch of inspiration we sometimes need to make a great session excel?
At the IAF Belgium Book Club, you can find out what colleagues have learned from books, articles and other resources, and how they can be a valuable resource. Expect to learn more – much more! – about the practice of facilitation from your peers, all around lively conversations and a Belgian beer at our favourite meetup spot.
Please come with at least one book that you found valuable on your facilitator journey, so we can all build our expertise and grow together.
And... don't worry, you'll leave the meetup with the materials you brought!
The EME 2019 Conference will be held in Milan on 2nd – 4th May, 2019 with theme “Facilitation & Agile”.
This is another way to embrace diversity, as facilitation is practiced in a variety of roles, including that of agile practitioners. We want to bring the agile practitioners and other facilitators together to learn from each other.
The conference will take place in a venue called “Olinda”, a former pyschiatric hospital where you can feel the interesting history of the place and enjoy beautiful surroundings, including a big park just for the conference guests.
Registrations will open soon. We will invite volunteers from all over the region to contribute to the conference organisation - so stay tuned!
