What people say about the experience:
"Such a fantastic workshop! I learned so much and really walked away with a new mindset"
Kai Haley, Lead of Design Relations and Sprint Master Academy Google
“Your session was one of the most valuable I’ve been to in years."
Holly Thorsen, Associate Director at Cooper Professional Education
“There's a big difference between trainer and facilitator -- A Trainer gives people a set of tools to learn and practice. A Facilitator imprints lessons with people through experience, connecting them with their intrinsic human values.
Daniel's Advanced Facilitation workshop provided me with a deeper perspective on the difference between training and facilitating. It can help you build a foundation of skills and mindsets to leap from trainer to facilitator, empowering you as a change agent and leader. “
Jay Melone, Founder of New Haircut
"This was a very structured workshop, however the flow felt natural and not rushed. I have never been formerly trained as a facilitator but have been doing it and training enterprise clients and consultants for over 2 decades! It was a fun and engaging workshop, and even through there were a lot of frameworks shared and practiced, the group did not feel over run with academia. Daniel created a perfect day of learning, sharing, guiding, practice.
Would highly recommend to facilitators or client teams who need a refresh!"
Diana Ying Liu, Business Experience Designer and Founder of The Six
"I highly recommend the Facilitation Masterclass even if you've done lots of it in the past. There were very experienced people there that were still learning a lot! People from innovation agencies, organizational change people, branding agencies... this isn't just meant for one very specific niche of facilitation... these are skills that you apply to a number of different contexts.
It was absolutely worthwhile investment for me...I got way more than I expected to get out of it!"
Jason Van Orden, Brand Strategist and Entrepreneur
"I have always thought that I was a natural facilitator. I quickly realized during a coaching conversation with Daniel that I could “up” my game considerably. I walked him through a recent workshop I’d done and he asked me some very insightful questions and provided me with some very helpful tools. I have subsequently used these tools in other workshops that I have facilitated. I plan to work more with Daniel. His experience and perspective are extremely valuable to me and my growth as a facilitator"
Antonia Bowring, AB strategies
"Working one on one with Daniel has been immensely helpful to my facilitation work...Daniel brings to his coaching not only his depth of facilitation knowledgeable and experience, but also his empathy and his sense of humor. I would definitely recommend working with Daniel for anyone who wants to take their facilitation work to the next level."
Jordan Hirsch, Director, Strategy Phase2
