About this Event

About this event

Facilitation happens everywhere, in meetings, conferences, and events, but it also happens in youth work, community engagement and schools. 

Facilitators are always supporting others to grow and change, but this conference is a space for your own development. A chance to meet others you can learn from, look at different tools and techniques to improve your skills, and to grow your business. 

Everyone interested in facilitation is welcome, whether you are brand new to this work or have been doing it for years, whether you work in-house or externally and whether you facilitate some or all of the time. 

What to expect

Over the two days you can expect workshops, talks and time to connect but also plenty of stationary, the infamous raffle and of course an organised curry night. Always a fan favourite.

Sessions will dive into these four themes. More details on agenda will follow.


Learning: Facilitation tools, techniques and skills

Practical learning about different facilitations skills and methods.


Growing: Personal Development and Reflection

Opportunities to reflect on, and enhance your personal practice.


Working: Professional / Business Development

Insight about running a business, or working in house.


Including: Diversity, inclusivity and lived experience

Ideas, methods and approaches to help make your practice more inclusive.


If that sounds good, Facilitate 2024 might be just the ticket for you.



Event Photos

Last years conference Facilitate 2023: Celebrating the diversity of facilitation brought together 80 individuals from across the world of facilitation. There were 24 sessions over 2 days exploring every part of this work.


Lots of people said some very nice things....


" An energising and inspiring day surrounded by friendly, supportive and knowledgeable colleagues in the facilitation field"

" Amazing! Friendliest conference ever"

" New tools. New connections and reinforced connections. Increased profile (and confidence) amongst my peers."

" The general vibe was fantastic. It felt a very safe place for learning and I hope it felt so for newcomers. I liked the main room especially because it allowed flexibility of movement, which helped the vibe. Dinner being organised was excellent."


Interested in leading a session?

We are keen to have a broad mix of expertise from both “old hands” and new faces. As part of our facilitation community we’d like to invite you to offer a session either by yourself, or co-facilitated with others.


Got an idea? Feeling inspired?! If you would be interested in runing a session then let us know here, don’t worry if your session plan isn’t written or if your idea is half formed, this is just your first expression of interest.
