Are your meetings, workshops and discussions engaging and invigorating? Do they provide space for good ideas to emerge and flourish?

Conventional structures and habits are often either inhibiting or too loose and not leading to actionable results. Frustrations and the feeling that time and money is being wasted are often a consequence of these approaches.

Collaboration and co-creation approaches like liberating structures and world cafe offer a better way that is designed to include everyone and get to results. Their techniques are practical and easy to learn by design, so that everyone can apply them at every level in an organisation, both in small and large groups. They encourage everyone to contribute and enable you to connect diverse perspectives by encouraging true listening and sharing.

In this workshop, we will not just tell you about these techniques. Rather, you will experience them yourself and learn everything you need to practice them yourself in your own organisation.

Fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride!
