Facilitation - workshop - training - Grape People Finland

Do you want to make your meetings and workshops more structured and more engaging while keeping them results-oriented?

Facilitation is a crucial skill in organizations consisting of experts. By engaging the participants you make sure that their expertise is utilized and their time is well spent. Facilitation improves engagement and interaction in group sessions. The facilitator’s mission is to bring the participants closer to each other so that they can communicate better and combine their knowledge.


”Facilitating means removing the obstacles of interaction. This I realized.” – A demo participant


Organizing meetings and workshops requires careful planning. The purpose of a facilitated process is to improve the results of collaboration. When a group session is facilitated well, everyone has an equal opportunity to voice their opinion. This results in better decisions that everyone can commit to.

If you want to understand what the value of facilitation is, come spend an inspiring morning with us. You will experience a facilitated event in practice and understand when and why you should facilitate. You will learn one facilitation method in addition to beginning and ending an interactive session.
