Hi, Welcome to O'Raw Facilitation & Training
Paul O’Raw - facilitation and training, supports and courses:
> For community and voluntary organisations: training/ & facilitation can be designed to meet the needs of your group. Actually – if a course is not designed to meet the needs of your group, it may well be ineffective and a waste of your time and money.
> For trainers, tutors, those who use a facilitation approach, or those wishing to learn facilitation skills, courses are provided to help you in your work with groups, committees & organizations. These courses are at beginners, developing, and creative levels.
> For managers, chairpersons and team or group leaders, facilitation is a valuable skill to make meetings more productive, involve team members more and achieve greater consensus.
