About Event

A space for facilitators to meet each month online to experiment, learn, share + exchange.

​This month: let's talk about facilitating moments of impact

In this edition of #FacLab, Ole Qvist-Sørensen, the co-author of ”Visual Collaboration”, will be treating us to a short experiential workshop on using visual tools and techniques designed for face to face, remote and hybrid meetings. ​Join us for what is sure to be a lively session!

About Ole: Ole has more than 20 years of international experience in facilitation and visualization, helping organizations, leaders, educators and learners cultivate a more visual way of thinking, communicating and collaborating. He is co-author of ”Visual Collaboration” published in 2019 by Wiley, now out also in Danish, German, Chinese, Italian, French, Korean & Dutch. Ole lives in Copenhagen with his wife, two kids and Hugo, the cocker spaniel.

​About #FacLab

​The pandemic opened up a whole new world for facilitators to network across timezones, borders and cultures, and we want to keep this going online.

​#FacLab (or The Facilitators’ Laboratory – a bit long, we agree!) is a space where we’ll:

  • ​Introduce and new and interesting tools, methods and processes

  • ​Share experiences with groups – we’ll talk about online, hybrid, specific facilitation methods (ORID, ToP, art of hosting, liberating structures, and many more!)

  • ​Invite folks to demo cool things – either related to facilitation OR to the business of being a facilitator

  • ​Have discussions around topics suggested by participants

​If you come along, you’ll get to help us choose the direction of our meetings, so get involved and tap into the power of the collective brain!!

​We meet once a month, on a Wednesday, and we try to time meetings to make it possible for folks in many different timezones to come along.

​Join us!
