We believe the best decisions are made together by the people who will be affected.

But making decisions as a team, organisation or community can be daunting.

So we help groups to chart a simple path through complex decision making situations.

 
 

We’re happy to manage all the complex moving parts of people making decisions together - we call this the ‘process’

Which allows you to focus fully on the ideas, the insights and the decisions - we call this the ‘content’

And that’s ‘facilitation’ in a nutshell.

But our facilitation approach is a little different

We call our approach Long Haul Facilitation.

We've done the miles, we know the best routes and we're ready to help your group set up for the long haul. 

 

Here’s why our Long Haul Facilitation approach is different.

We understand that your workshop, forum or conference is just one small, but super critical, step in your strategic journey as a group or team.

So we work with you to integrate that critical step with the rest of your world by:

INTEGRATING YOUR CONTEXT

We’ll always meet for a face-to-face briefing (where physically possible) to understand your story, the work you’ve done to date, your expectations for the workshop and to co-design a bespoke approach.

Our workshops are never done in isolation of your context and we’ll always work with you to build on work already available.

MAXIMISING YOUR TIME TOGETHER

We understand what it takes and costs to pull a group together, every minute is precious. So we’ll always look to incorporate the simplest, frictionless methodology and digital technology to help your group get the outcomes you’re after.

Our workshops are about respecting the rare time you’ve all got together by getting to work on robust discussions, robust learnings and robust decisions.

KICKSTARTING YOUR COMMUNICATIONS

We know the most critical period is the time between leaving a workshop on a high note and getting to report. Nothing kills momentum like waiting on reports. So we provide options beyond the utilitarian workshop report such as infographics, posters and videos.

Our approach recognises that all the hard work done in the workshop is often just the start and that telling the story to the people outside the room is just as critical.


Here are some of the types of work we do
