News and updates
April 2020 has been a challenge for all of us who make our living by bringing people together. The IAF community has united around the challenge by supporting clients and each other to make the transition too new ways of facilitation that COVID-19 has made necessary.
What has inspired me personally is how we have created webinars, virtual sessions, the sharing of best practices and content, and the creation of friendships from all parts of the globe. Your willingness to help each other and share your time and expertise is what makes our community so special and unique.
These are interesting and challenging times for the facilitation community as the increasing global spread of COVID19 is impacting our ability to work face to face with groups and engage with communities.
