What our clients say…
“I enjoyed the course and highly recommend it to anyone who has been facilitating for a while and wants to raise their skills to the next level. I learned a lot of practical tools, and got a different perspective on things I thought I already knew, but didn’t.”
“Extremely well executed and engaging.”
“I found the course very professional, the content high-quality, Rebecca’s leadership very effective, and the overall result to be a great addition to my professional toolkit.”
“I feel very fortunate to have found the course “Making Your Good Stuff Better”. I often find myself leading technical meetings and workshops and it was eye opening to learn of the facilitation world and have it unpacked by someone so experienced and knowledgeable. The interview sessions with other facilitators offer different perspectives and the ongoing weekly dialogue with other participants was engaging. I would recommend this to technical people to help them think outside the box, even just a little bit, in their delivery.”
“This course introduced me to an enriching and inspiring world that I never even really knew existed. With a tremendous diversity of material and concepts, this course has improved my confidence to facilitate meetings far beyond what I could have accomplished on my own.”
“Engaging, informative and very practical. I would highly recommend it.”
