Sometimes, running a meeting can be a distraction from achieving its aims.
Expert facilitation helps you and your colleagues stick to an agreed agenda and timescale, and achieve your targets.
A facilitator will know the techniques which may help you work through difficulties creatively, and achieve a better solution. Formal presentations, breakouts, brainstorms, and round-the-table sharing are just the start. The facilitator will help shape the way your agenda is structured, and then support you in delivering it.
The facilitator is not an expert in your topic, but knows how to ensure everyone's view is heard and that discussions move to an appropriate conclusion. It's a small investment, with big dividends.
