About FODW

The purpose of the Facilitation One Day Wonder is to gather our community to share and learn together. FODW is organised on a volunteer basis, for and by the Victorian Facilitators Network and is a not-for-profit effort. There is no payment for facilitating a session – rather we offer genuine, facilitated feedback as part of the FODW 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.

Thanks for your interest Simone Maus, Noel Gately and Steven McInnes – your FODW organising community
