Hosting Conversations about Questions that Matter
At the IAF Europe conference in September I visually facilitated an adapted World Café for the closing session. We wanted to give facilitators the experience of being 'inside' the process, and for them to see how it worked with a graphic facilitator - something not everyone had possibly experienced.
I ran a 'back to basics' World Café with a pre-prepared template and just paper and pens on the tables - adding in the WC cards to provide guidelines for those new to the process (very useful, can recommend). We only had one participant move due to time, limited space and depleted energy levels on day 3 of an amazing and intense conference!
Things got really interesting in the final section when I opened it up to the room for their World Café adaptations, this was a incredibly experienced group (think Somali pirate negotiations, war zone facilitation and UN worldwide) and the results were fascinating.
