Expert facilitation services for businesses and training organisations

Contract facilitation for leadership programmes, strategy sessions and design workshops.

Make the most of your events with professional facilitation

In business, the quality of your events can significantly influence your strategic outcomes and team dynamics

Whether it’s planning days, strategy sessions, team-building events or courses, having an expert facilitator can transform a routine gathering into a pivotal moment of insight and engagement.

As a seasoned facilitator with over 35 years of experience across diverse sectors and cultures, I bring a wealth of knowledge and a hands-on approach to ensure your corporate events or training are productive, engaging, and aligned with your objectives.


“Jon was brilliant at facilitating our strategic planning & values process. Very creative, kept us on-topic at the right pace and ensured everyone’s voices were heard. Many were new to this type of process but Jon had us all at ease and contributing well within moments of him beginning the session. Highly recommended and would use again without hesitation.” – Gavin Gunston, Community Coordinator at Hobsonville Community Trust

“Jon’s approach engages all participants in the process while providing sufficient challenge to get participants to think outside their comfort zones. We arrived at a set of goals that tasked us to do what we do best but also to strengthen our organisation and our brand, and develop new initiatives to support our client base. We have come a long way since setting those goals and are very grateful for Jon’s input.” – Tony Culliney, Chief Executive at Storytime Foundation
