Meeting, Workshop and Event FacilitationAuckland Council Workshop

If you are looking for a Facilitator to provide process expertise, engagement and direction for your next 'big' Meeting, Workshop or Event then there are a few things to consider as there are many options out there in the market place.

One of the first questions to ask yourself is:

Do you need to use an external facilitator or can you use one of your own?

The answer is simple if you do not have one of your own.

However if you do have a choice, the questions below will help you make a decision to hire an external facilitator or use one of your own.

These questions relate to using your own facilitator. If either you or the people participating answer "no" to any of these questions, then you will need to hire an external facilitator.

  1. Can the people in the group trust their neutrality?
  2. Are they seen as credible?
  3. Do they have the required experience with specific facilitation and process tools?
  4. Will the content of discussions be safe for an insider to know and not cause any fallout?
  5. Are they available?
Once you have decided to hire an external facilitator, the next questions to consider are:

  1. What is my budget?
  2. Do they have the experience and expertise we need?
  3. Are they the right fit for our organization?
  4. Are they available when we need them?
If you knew all of the above already or it helped you decide, this is what Zenergy can offer:

  • Designing effective meeting processes that fully engage your participants
  • Helping clarify the purpose, outcomes and process for your big event
