Facilitation Bootcamp

August 6, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Over one intense day we’ll cover the most essential topics of workshop and meeting Facilitation.
You’ll work in small groups to learn new skills on group facilitation, planning and management, as well as gaining deeper experience with each. This class isn’t a day of us talking at you, it’s a day of practical exercises and discussions to prepare you for better meeting management. After this workshop and if you’ve already taken our Design Thinking bootcamp, you’ll be ready to apply your facilitation skills to lead teams during The Studio Project.  We find the best way to learn is by actually doing the work!
