Webinar: Tips and tricks for facilitating a discussion

Monday, 17 November

Starts 06:00 Peru time (12noon CET/18:00 Bangkok)



Fishbowls, river of life, knowledge expeditions…there are hundreds of different tools at a facilitator’s disposal. So how do you decide which one to use that will help participants achieve the discussion’s objectives?

Through the use of practical examples, this webinar will take you through the decision making process of choosing the right tool for your discussion. We’ll also run through some of the golden rules of facilitating a discussion as well as some common mistakes and how to avoid them. Take a look at this blogpost on ‘how to be a great facilitator’ to prepare you before the webinar!

The skills taught in this webinar will be built upon and put into practice during the Facilitation Masterclass on December 5th in Lima, Peru.
