Facilitation

Studies show that executives and managers spend as much as 50% of their working hours in meetings, 50% of which is unproductive and 25% is spent discussing irrelevant issues. Using a skilled facilitator increases the productivity of a meeting. We have designed and facilitated interactive meetings and workshops for groups from 10 to 100 participants in the private and public sectors. Our combined technical and psychology backgrounds enable us to easily facilitate public and stakeholder meetings, and technical, design and construction partnering workshops. We also offer facilitation for groups visiting Las Vegas for company meetings or strategic planning retreats. Read more
