Session Facilitator’s Guide

Showcase your cracking ideas with the facilitation community

DAY 1 Cracking Facilitation Gathering 2024 – Thursday 12 September, Abbotsford Convent, (8.30am for 9am start. Day 1 ends 4.00pm)

We are now seeking expressions of interest from facilitators keen to lead a session on Day 1. With a focus on our theme your proposals will shape the Cracking Facilitation Gathering 2024.

This guide details what you need to know!

DAY 1 sessions are:

  • Facilitated, interactive and engaging – participants do not expect to see presentations. Be sure to demonstrate how your session will be interactive rather than informative. Simply saying it will be interactive won’t satisfy our appetite, describe it to us.
  • 90 minutes long and attended by approximately 20 participants – note the room allows space to move. Allow 5 minutes for a session host to introduce you and 10 minutes for the host to facilitate feedback at the end of your session. 
  • Not promotional opportunities, but you are welcome to have promotional material on display and/or available for attendees to choose to take away.     

We will support your session by assisting with room setup and some materials (butchers paper, markers, whiteboard etc…). Please let us know what you require. Bring your own technology if needed (laptop, data projector, speakers, music).

About Cracking Facilitation 2024

The purpose of this collaboration between the Facilitation One Day Wonder (FODW), AFN and IAF is to gather our community to share, support and learn together. Day 1 of Cracking Facilitation 2024 builds on the FODW tradition of facilitation offers from emerging and experienced facilitators. It’s an opportunity to test, showcase or explore a facilitation idea. The day will showcase 12 facilitation offers.

Organised on a volunteer basis, for and by the FODW, AFN and IAF networks this experiential conference is a not-for-profit effort. There is no payment for facilitating a session – rather we offer genuine, facilitated feedback as part of the Day 1 session format. In the last 10 minutes of each session we will be asking for feedback from the participants. Session facilitators are offered a half price registration discount and are invited to attend sessions outside of theirs and participate in the day!

Expressions of Interest close 28 June. We look forward to hearing from you!
