At the centre of your being you have

Facilitation Training

This quote lies at the heart of the facilitate 4 change approach to Facilitator Development – you are the best tool or technique that you will ever have so knowing who you are is the start and end point.

Gary Purser has trained hundreds of facilitators across the world and brings all his experience to the design and delivery of Facilitation Training that fits you or your organisations performance. The three day Three Day Core Skills Programme has been Certified as one of only two organisations in the UK to deliver all the Core Competencies required to be certified as a professional facilitator.

Again facilitate 4 change will work with you to identify what you or your teams needs are by exploring the environments and cultures they will be working in and the type of work they will be expected to deliver.
