Whole Person Creative Facilitation Training with Simone Maus

A day of experiential training and exploring what it means to be a creative, whole person facilitator. 

“A group, like each individual in it, is multidimensional and operating on many different levels. Group facilitation works within and between these different levels. This is part of the magic or alchemy of being a facilitator. A facilitator working on different levels may appear to people in groups as a magician.” Dale Hunter and colleagues: The Art of Facilitation

Are you interested in:

  • Keeping the energy flowing in a group? 
  • Make your meetings more creative, effective and fun?
  • Feeling more energised after your facilitation and team meetings?

Increasing the bandwidth for engagement in learning with Ramon Marmolejos

The world needs people who are willing and able to take risks and find creative solutions to challenging and complex problems. How might we design and facilitate learning spaces that increase the bandwidth for collaboration, innovation, engagement and risk taking?

This experiential, playful half-day workshop draws on the learning design and facilitation methodologies of Kaospilot, an alternative business, design and leadership school in Denmark. BusinessWeek has recognized the Kaospilots as “one of the best design schools in the world”, and Fast Company has named it in its Startup League’s Big 10, “preparing you for the fast moving startup economy”. Kaospilot was founded in 1991 with the mission to be the best school FOR the world, and in 2018 Alkimia Learning partnered with the Kaospilot Learning Design Agency to bring their methodologies to Australia.

In 2018 the Institute for Learning Professionals recognised Alkimia Learning with the Future of Learning Award for its Kaospilot related work. Come and experience for yourself a taste of what we hope is the future of learning. 30% earlybird discount for tickets sold before 13th July. Just use the code earlybird.
