Enroll today and learn how to share your knowledge, deepen your Presence, and engage your clients, colleagues, or students.
Raise your hand if you have participated in an event, workshop, or meeting... bored out of your mind, frustrated by the lack of engagement, or overwhelmed by the feelings in the "room." Meetings do not have to be painful: they can lead to connection, insights, and deep feelings of belonging. But it takes skills.
In this Facilitation Course I am going to share with you how to create a space that leads to engagement, connection, and transformation, online as well as in-person.
Learn how to plan curriculum that works
Understand the elements of transformational events/workshops/meetings
Tap into your unique presence
Learn how to hold space
Have powerful insights on trusting yourSelf
Gain tools you can use over and over again
During our first 3 live sessions I will cover the building blocks of creating and hosting transformative events, meetings, and workshops, so you can start planning your own.
Session 4 is all about inviting people to join you and understanding event marketing.
And our last 2 sessions are dedicated to your questions, including giving a few participants* the opportunity to host a mini workshop or meeting (20-30 min) and receive coaching to help you hone your skills.
All our sessions will be partially recorded and shared in a private online community, so you can always access the material. Parts of the calls will also be shared with future program participants.
Everyone will also have the opportunity to schedule a 1:1 coaching call with me to help you go deeper into your learning and creation.

Do I need to have experience as a facilitator to participate? The Facilitation Course is perfect for you whether you have no experience or already host events and teach some workshops. However, it is not recommended for very experienced facilitators - you might need more advanced instruction.
Do I need to have an idea of what I would like to create? You can choose what topic to focus on during the first 2-3 weeks of the program, but it will help you to already have some ideas before the course starts.
Will you teach me how to create an online course and how to market it? This program focuses on live interactive events, meetings, and workshops, with more attention to online gatherings since we will be meeting online for the program.
While you can use some of what I share to create pre-recorded courses, this is not a program to build online courses and create passive income. Our fourth meeting will cover event marketing. Keep in mind marketing is an always evolving field and there is much more to learn! My goal is for you to understand how the system works, so you can recognize good advice and develop your own approach to sharing your work.
What if I have questions specific to my work? While I cannot advise you on the content of the program you will create (you are the subject matter expert!), we will meet for a 1:1 coaching session so I can support you in your specific questions and goals as a Facilitator.
Do you offer refunds? There are no refunds for this course.
Lead with confidence, creativity, presence, and heart
Since 2017, I have created and hosted interactive workshops, panel discussions, and events to bring people together. Thousands of people have joined me to have deeper conversations, meet each other, and to learn new skills. I honed my approach through years of teaching children and adults, leading anti-bullying workshops in schools, and coaching clients. Here's what a participant wrote me after one of my interactive workshops: "I so appreciate what you do—your philosophy, apparent heart and purity of intention is so special and incredibly rare among coaches and others I’ve come across."
If you would like to make a difference with your workshops and meetings, join me online for The Facilitation Course. We begin on Tuesday September 27.
