Monday, 26 October 2020 - 11:00am to 12:15pm (America/New York)

Celebrate the impact of facilitation and meet the people behind the projects. We will be honouring twenty silver, gold or platinum projects for achieving a positive and measurable impact through excellence in facilitation. Hosted by the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) the awardees span the globe, and are not necessarily IAF members. You will have a chance to hear their secrets for success, and get into conversation with the project team of your choice.

Friday, 23 October 2020 - 9:00am to 11:00am (America/New York)

The IAF is the home and support for facilitators at all phases of their career. Since 1994 the IAF has promoted the value of facilitation worldwide through the establishment of international standards and by providing support and recognition for the professional development of facilitators.The Association has drawn on the significant experience and expertise of its members to identify the key attributes of credible and effective facilitation. The outcomes of this are IAF’s Statement of Values and Code of Ethics and the IAF Core Competencies framework.

Making the decision to seek the IAF Certified™ Professional Facilitator (CPF) accreditation can be hard. Common questions people ask are What’s involved? How much time will it take? Will I meet the requirements? and What if I don’t pass?

Presenters: Rhonda Tranks, CPF

In response to strong interest from members we will be exploring these questions at a webinar with hosts that have years of experience as professional facilitators and as IAF Assessors.
