An exceptional facilitator is capable of leading gatherings on any topic. With proper briefing, a skilled, experienced facilitator can do a good job. However, engaging a facilitator who possesses the intersection of skills and subject matter knowledge will increase productivity and participant satisfaction with the process.
Few people combine thorough understanding of gender justice-related issues with exceptional facilitation skills. That’s intelligent facilitation. And that is what I am uniquely qualified to offer.
I possess a deep understanding of the issues at hand. I know the subject well enough to respond to and address subtlety and nuances; I utilize appropriate language and concepts to probe and to stimulate deeper conversation and insights. Because I demonstrate that I “get it,” participants trust me more easily, and allow me to carry the conversation further and deeper. My clients’ experiences working with me bear this out.
