Interested in facilitation training that actually gets people facilitating?

Visit our Facilitating With Confidence Web Site

We can design an in-house course to meet your needs.

Here’s an overview of Facilitating With Confidence in  Haiku:

Building a platform
is the basis of great, no…
a confident way.

Be prepared! Know your
processes and ways to be
effective always.

Throw away your plan…
And be present to the needs
of the group today!

And here’s what others have said about Facilitating With Confidence.


The FWC course was inspiring and practical, it was a safe space to learn, question, experience and practice great facilitation techniques. I would do it again if I could! Unlike other courses where the learning can be left behind, I have carried much of my new understanding and knowledge with me and have had confidence to use it in my work. The structure of the course enabled time for learnings to be practised and reflected upon on return to the course. Viv and Anne are fabulous facilitators who generously imparted their own knowledge and support participants in developing their individual skills and technique. This course is fabulous!

The course was a very comprehensive one and enjoyable, with plenty of time for reflection. I learnt a lot of new things, including some that were quite a surprise, which is good for personal development as well! Trainers were supportive and insightful.

I attended a six day “Facilitating with Confidence” course hosted by the Surf Coast Shire Council.  I am the first to admit that I had no clue as to what facilitation was all about and from day one of the course my learning curve skyrocketed. If you are engaged in public consultation, community group meetings or community decision making of any kind, this course is for you.  You will be given an invaluable “toolkit” of facilitation techniques as to how to get the best out of a group and become practiced in them all (and have a hell of a lot of fun and laughs on the way). This training was a great experience in itself and Viv and Anne set the pace with impromptu entertainment for all.  Something I will never forget and has broadened my facilitation horizons considerably!
