A groundbreaking event that promises to reshape the way you think about facilitation. 

Our 1st event was on 1 November 2023 at Happy Ltd in London.
44 people attended and 21 discussions were had.

The session grid is made of masking tape, placed on a glass window.

We're very grateful to UKGovCamp. Their grant enabled discounts for people in the voluntary, charity and public sectors. All discounted tickets were sold. We're a not for profit event. Our team gives their time for free.
