The School of Facilitation
Hi, I’m Kirsty. I welcome you to the School of Facilitation, a dream I first journaled on in 2007. Just like you I was seeking comradery in the world of facilitation, working with corporates for the majority of my career, I was feeling the pull of real connection and people who just ‘got it’.
But, where would I find them? After months and years of soul searching and web scouring, I realised that the solution I sought was within me! In 2014 the School of Facilitation welcomed its first members, having been gradually formulating in the background for some time. By 2017 we were supporting and encouraging facilitators and corporations from around the world.
Want to see what we do?
I’ve worked with powerhouse brands and household names, such as Diageo, Chanel and Jacob Douwe Egberts. My own personal facilitation journey spans decades (I know, I know, I don’t look old enough!) and I’ve worked for myself for much of that time. I understand the trials and tribulations of going it alone, being an associate or facilitating within a corporate structure, because I’ve experienced those facets myself.
I wholeheartedly welcome you to the School of Facilitation - I know how much support and education you will receive here. So, thank you and let’s get stuck in!
The School of Facilitation is a multi-faceted organisation that supports both individual and associate facilitators, as well as corporates and large brands.
Education is our aim, engaging and developmental content is our strategy.
We host regular classes, teaching on topics around design, delivery and graphics, to assist our community in consistently bettering their facilitation toolkit. Our quarterly and monthly gatherings are held both online and in person, allowing real life community members to link up and support each other in the real world.
The Mountain Perspective is our yearly ‘break’ - a refreshing event that gives dedicated individuals the time to dive deep, reset and unlock their next level of potential.
Amongst the community activities, Kirsty offers one to one coaching programmes for solo facilitators and teams.
We are founded on the need that Kirsty keenly felt when embarking on her own facilitation development. Sometimes it’s hard to explain what we do, or how we do it. Occasionally the life of a facilitator can be lonely, involving a lot of travel and giving a huge chunk of our personal energy to our clients. The School of Facilitation is your respite, your private space to offload, recharge and head back out into your genius with renewed vigour.
