Facilitation Bootcamp

June 18, 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  fresh skills on group facilitation, planning and management, as well as 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, if you take our Design Thinking bootcamp, you’re ready to apply to use your facilitation skills to lead teams during our DesignThinking bootcamp, the best way to learn – by practicing!
