Collaboration Support & Facilitation

I have had the honour of working with fantastic collaborations over my career and am passionate about helping collaborations work. One of the keys to developing an efficient collaborative effort is being able to facilitate meetings to achieve alignment in approach in order to build a plan that achieves a united vision.

I may be overheard calling it cat herding. But only out of fun and respect – I can help a group respectfully listen, and pull together differing viewpoints into a comprehensive vision moving forward. My experience includes:

  • Supporting the Oil Sands Leadership Initiative (OSLI) companies by planning and executing external and internal communications for four years – including development of all processes from the ground up
  • Providing workshop facilitation over the last two years to assist a major oil sand collaboration to achieve alignment communications messaging
  • Developing and facilitating numerous workshops specific to issues where a group is required to pull together to one vision
  • Assisting a non-profit municipal heritage association in pulling together a united view to move forward
