Our story

Grape People was formed in 2003 out of a desire to make organisations more inclusive.As organisations and working environments became more complex, it was no longer enough to have strong and knowledgeable leaders –the traditional type.

A new kind of leadership was needed to solve hard problems: facilitative leadership. So we set out on our mission to spread facilitation awareness so that leaders might be better equipped to lead the organisations of tomorrow.

We help organisations create and implement change through facilitation and facilitation training. Whether the task is to create a shared vision; to implement a strategy within the organisation; to understand and act on an important change; or to improve team efficiency, we are here to help.

Our trainings are the product of countless hours facilitating workshops and training facilitators. Between our facilitators and trainers we have facilitated more than 1,000 workshops and trained more than 25,000 facilitators worldwide.

Contact information
