Creative Facilitation Workshops

Our creative facilitation taster workshop aims to give participants the confidence and creative communication skills useful in any situation. A typical workshop runs for about 1.5 hrs but can be flexible. Quite often a taster workshop will be followed by a regular public Talkaoke session, where workshop participants will get a chance of putting their learning into action.

For us, conversation is a creative medium that can lead to an endless number of creative possibilities. Over the years The People Speak have trained people in the art of facilitation and public speaking, using creative methods developed through Talkaoke and influenced by various performance practices including live art, theatre, clowning, comedy and improv. During this practical training session participants will focus on creative linking, neutral voice and building the bridge from the other side  – techniques we use in engaging with participants. Armed with wigs and props, Mikey and Margot cover subjects such as: asking open questions, usefulness of tangents, exploration of assumptions, dealing with opposing views, active listening and how to generate ideas in a fun way! There will be time to share your thoughts, experiences and uncertainties, which we will address together.
