Course Description

1-Day Intensive Facilitation Masterclass May 2019


One day intensive, hands-on experience for skilled facilitators to deepen their practice. This is not a “chalk-and-talk” or “sage-on-the-stage” format. The day is highly interactive with multiple facilitation simulations, activities and collaborative sessions. You’ll leave having had the chance to try on a variety of new facilitation approaches in a safe space.

Daniel Stillman is an independent design facilitator. He’s taught advanced facilitation to organizations from Google to Visa and has run sprints of all shapes and sizes for both non-profits and Fortune 500 companies alike. He hosts a podcast on designing conversations and is working on his second book.

Daniel is part of the DesignThinkers Group USA and visiting Europe in May. This is a unique opportunity to learn from his skills and surf on his energy.
