Distilling facilitation insights from the third third of design, delivery and discovery

Category: Facilitation
Friday 10:45am • Court 6
Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)

This workshop is an opportunity for facilitators to share stories of facilitation success and failure within a structured story telling framework that allows us to learn from what we designed, delivered and then discovered in our experience. This will be a shared learning space where we shall co-create facilitation best practices and strategies that we might all use.

The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session

  • A structured story telling framework to add to your facilitation toolkit
  • Facilitation strategies that will enhance your practice
  • Ideas for how to use this approach to create strategies with groups who are seeking innovation

Ismet Mamnoon
Buffalo, NY, USA

Hi! My name is Ismet and my friends call me Izzy. I am a Creativity Catalyst and while I focus on working with children and parents, I also work with businesses, local community, academics and even government organizations.

I like to think of myself as an ”Optimist“ because I think all things are possible. If I need something that doesn’t exist – I create it, if I need help – I ask for it and if I can provide help – I will give it with no strings attached.

I was recognized for my work as an Outstanding Graduate student by the President of Buffalo State College and for Student Excellence by the Chancellor of the SUNY system when I graduated with my Masters in Creativity. I recently spoke at a TEDx event and I travel all over the world to help people realize their creative potential.
