Clean Language is a framework to ask questions without pre-suppositions.
Because sometimes questions are far from 'clean', we might inadvertently disguise opinions inside questions, and therefore partly determine the response of the person being asked the question. Read More...
I recently had the pleasure of facilitating a 1.5 day strategy workshop for trustees and senior executives of Ravensbourne College. Chairman Jon Drori (who incidentally gives great TED talks) was kind enough to write to me after the workshop, here is his brief letter:
Dear Sean, Thank you for facilitating Ravensbourne's strategy awaydays so ably.
Facilitation is one of those activities that too many people think they can do well. Some of those people should watch you at work - professional, firm, authoritative, gracious and focused on the outcome we wanted, which was to have a senior team of executives and governors sharing ambition and direction.
I confess that when you and I first met I wasn't immediately sure that Lego Serious Play would be the right tool for our team. You quickly gained my trust and I'm absolutely delighted that, having listened carefully to what we wanted to achieve, you made such persuasive arguments for the approach.
I would be very happy to recommend your services to others.
All the best, Jon
Jonathan Drori CBE Chairman, Ravensbourne Board of Governors
ProMeet is very lucky to be joined by a new associate, based in the USA, Lauren Kramer. Lauren first worked with ProMeet in 2015 on the PCMA Global Medical Meetings summit. ProMeet founder Sean Blair said,
"Working with Lauren for the first time felt like we had worked together for decades. It was clear from the start that Lauren shared very similar values and has terrific professional standards.
She's great fun to work with and I'll look forward to seeing how our combined skills can help the events and meetings industry create more engaging participant experiences, through excellent facilitation."
