Speaker's Session

Room 2: B.V. Langenbeck

Facilitation is more than a collection of formats, tricks, structures, and templates. In this session, we will go beyond the surface and uncover the reasons behind their usage, supported by scientific evidence from cognitive processes to behavioral psychology.

Through interactive discussions and practical examples, we will explore how these facilitation tools contribute to effective communication, collaboration, and personal engagement. You will gain insights into the underlying principles that drive successful facilitation and discover practical strategies to apply in your facilitation practice.

This session is designed to be highly interactive, ensuring active participation and engagement from all attendees. As we journey through the 5P's of Personal Engagement, you can share your experiences, ask questions, and collaborate with fellow participants.

By the end of this session, you will feel empowered to become a more effective facilitator yourself, equipped with the knowledge and tools to create meaningful and engaging experiences for your participants.
