Organisations in Eight Countries Honoured with Prestigious Facilitation Impact Awards


Organisations in Canada, China, Denmark, Sweden, Togo, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States were honoured in the 2018 Facilitation Impact Awards.

The Facilitation Impact Awards are the world’s most prestigious international awards honouring excellence in facilitation and its positive, measurable impact on organisations everywhere.

The awards were announced by Mr Trevor Durnford, the Board Chair of the International Association of Facilitators, the world’s premier association of professional facilitators with members in more than 65 countries.

“The remarkably diverse range of projects receiving awards this year demonstrates our belief that good group process facilitation can be used in any context to change the way people think and act, and ultimately support them to positively change the world around them,” shared Mr. Durnford.

“One of the recipients is a large business, two are small to medium-sized, three are government and four are not-for-profit organisations. An analysis of the projects shows clearly that good group process facilitation translates into cost-effective and creative outcomes. The diversity of projects emphasises that expert facilitation can play a major role in any type of project in any sector.”

A summary of the awards and information about recipients is available on the FIA web page.

“The facilitators who have gained recognition for their expertise have combined innovative planning with expert delivery in widely-varied fields to help their clients meet complex challenges and achieve organisational objectives,” explained Mr. Dunford.

“As the awardee projects demonstrate, in some cases expert facilitators have been able to deliver their expertise by combining with in-house facilitators whom they have trained to be an on-going resource for their organisations.”

The awards flow from a peer evaluation of submissions by association volunteers who award points based on a set of objective criteria capable of being applied to any project. The results for successful nominees are reflected in awards at the Platinum, Gold or Silver levels. The awards are international recognition for the achievements of both organisations and facilitators and we encourage their proud display.
