Facilitation Impact Awards

Have you seen the impact of facilitation?


If you’ve seen an organisation make a positive and measurable impact using facilitation, we’d like to showcase their story.

As the leading professional association for facilitators, we understand how stories like yours can illustrate the power of facilitation.

The Facilitation Impact Awards celebrate the results, change and progress that organisations make using facilitation. They are also a great way for people everywhere to learn from the facilitators who make that impact possible.

Nominations for the 2022 awards are open and will close on Sunday 24 July 2022 at 23:00 GMT.
