TOOLS AND SKILLS TO CONNECT. ENGAGE. COLLABORATE.

"Convening is different from facilitation. By definition, facilitation is 'the process of making things easy or easier.'  Conveners invite participants to co-create the highest possible outcome for a meeting or gathering."  - Craig Neal

The Art of Convening (AoC) teaches the art and science of designing and leading meeting and conversations that are inspirational, productive and transformative for all involved. Each step of the way is a journey into personal and professional learning and application of the technology of relationships.
