Making Meetings Work: effective facilitation for social change groups (Oxford): Sat 11th Oct 2014


A message from our friends at Seeds for Change

Saturday 11th October 2014 10.30am – 5.30pm in Oxford

Making meetings work
Most people hate meetings! We think they are hard work, dull, fruitless, even painful, necessary but boring, to be avoided whenever possible. But meetings are the heart of our organisations, we get to discuss issues, make decisions together, get creative, practice our values and get to know each other. When meetings are productive and engaging they help us move forward with our plans to make change happen, they empower us and they help sustain our groups.

Want to help make your group’s meetings more effective, inclusive and
enjoyable? Would you like to facilitate a meeting, but don’t have the
confidence yet?

This workshop is for anyone who wishes to improve their meeting facilitation skills and is involved in a group working for social change.

The day will include:

  •  developing skills to help make your meetings more structured and inclusive
  • learning tools for large and small meetings
  • the opportunity to practice facilitating and gain feedback

These workshops are free to members of grassroots groups, but please consider making a donation of whatever you can afford. For participants from funded organisations the cost is from £100 (depending on your organisation’s turnover).

Lunch will be provided at a cost of £4.

Basic accommodation available for Friday/Saturday nights, if needed.
