We run a number of different Creative Facilitation training courses. Our most popular course is a 2-3 day train-the-trainer "Hothouse Champions" program for 20-24 delegates. The objective of the course is to give delegates the skills, confidence and experience to plan, prepare and facilitate innovation projects and workshops, both internally and with external teams. Delegates are provided with a complete tool-kit of different facilitation techniques plus a license to use a new online collaboration platform called Zip-Zap Ideas®. Watch the short movie from a recent course and take a look at some of Top Tips to Create a Culture of Innovation.  Enquire now »
