Whether you need a single conference facilitator or a team of conference facilitators to handle simultaneous break-out sessions Meeting Facilitators International can help.
We can help design the conference and any break-out sessions, provide on-site facilitation, and take care of the reporting. We can provide as many facilitators as you need and are happy to work with your staff as co-facilitators. If your conference design requires the use of audience response systems we can work with your vendor or bring our trusted partner to you. If you need bilingual facilitation (English / French) we have bilingual facilitators.
Here are a few examples of the diverse conference facilitation we have done…
Health Canada Global Climate Change and Health
We provided a team of facilitators to this conference with half of the team being bilingual. The breakout groups addressed a wide range of themes related to global climate change and health. We worked closely with Mitchell Beer of the Conference Publishers who provided a team of writers to cover the conference. It was a highly successful collaboration.
Canadian Curling Association Congress
This conference was a congress with 75 delegates from all of the Provincial Associations. A presentation was made to the Congress on eight interconnected issues to be addressed. We spent the majority of the day with people rotating amongst the eight topics in a series of breakout groups. Once the rotation was completed we used individual sticky dots to understand which solutions to the eight issues had the greatest support.
District of Muskoka Heritage Property
This conference was to obtain public input on potential land use restrictions on designated heritage property. We used a combination of small group breakout discussions and audience response systems to get the client the feedback they were looking for.
If you would like to discuss how we can help you get what you want from your next conference please contact Meeting Facilitators International. The initial consultation is always free.
From Our Clients
“Over the past five or six years we have worked with Bruce more than a dozen times as a focus group moderator for our pharmaceutical and medical device clients. The clients are always impressed with how quickly Bruce picks up challenging concepts and how easily he communicates them. The high-quality feedback and insight he draws from the focus group participants is what we are all looking for. Bruce’s track record in exceeding client objectives makes me extremely comfortable recommending him to any of our clients regardless of therapeutic area.”
“We wanted to find somebody unbiased, with no agenda, who could lead the retreat and pull in all points of view. Bruce did this and more. He brought some clever ways to make sure that we fully explored our ideas and he forced the discipline of setting priorities and of committing to an action plan. We have now used him three years in a row since everyone sees the value he adds and trusts his process.”
