Creative Facilitation Playground

A community of creative facilitation peers, where we can share, support, inspire and play.

If you enjoyed The Art of Online Creative Facilitation and would like a way to keep investing in developing your facilitation skills, maximising the creativity in your sessions, sharing ideas and getting the support of peers to solve challenges, then the Creative Facilitation Playground is for you.

As we move into our hybrid world of online and face-to-face, the playground will explore all ways we can engage, enthuse and inspire.

The group will meet monthly on a Wednesday morning at 9.30am and, depending on numbers will run for an hour or an hour and a half. It’s scheduled to run once a month from January to June 2022.

Each session will be recorded and available in a private shared Google folder for the group. We will also have an optional group WhatsApp so we can share links and ideas between sessions.

The Playground is a sharing space, however I will continually seek out approaches, ideas and examples of best practice to keep our resource kit well topped up so we can facilitate with energy and find lots of ways of getting those golden “Oooh that’s a good exercise/idea/thing” comments in our sessions.



The group will meet monthly on a Wednesday morning at 9.30am (GMT/BST), depending on numbers will run 1-1.5 hours. This is scheduled to run once a month from January to June 2022.
