Workshop Design Canvas

 

Build on years of workshop planning and facilitation experience.

Dramatic arc

Reminds you to maintain a dramatic arc, and not get lost in the details of the workshop steps.

Before and After thoughts

Workshops begin way before the participants show up, and hopefully have an impact way after the venue is cleaned up and empty.

Tomorrow – The movie

Showing solutions, telling a feel-good story… this may be the best way to solve the ecological, economical and social crises that our countries are going through.
