“This workshop took the anxiety out of facilitation—it feels more accomplishable now.” —David L.

“I gained strategic tactics, tips, and advice. The facilitators are engaging and bring real-life experiences and knowledge.”—Kristin T.

“I’ve been naively doing a lot of facilitating. This grounded me in the logic behind doing it well, and gave me more of a road map with tips and tricks. Thanks!” —Hulda N.

“The material was clearly articulated and the instructors did a good job coloring the material with real-world examples.” —Jill N.

“The information is extremely useful as my team leads ideation meetings, product launches, and user testing across the company.” —Diana B.

“A richly packed two days! I’m looking forward to trying out some of these great techniques.” —Laine F.

“This workshop opened up new career directions for me and provided the tools to apply facilitation in all areas of my life.” —Vicky I.

“Having worked hard to include empathy as a keystone of my design process, I looked to this workshop to provide the tools I needed to involve others in this process...and I wasn't disappointed. Renna’s teaching style and the ‘just right’ amount of interactive group work made it feel like I was practicing what I was learning in a timely, instructive manner.” —Jeremy H.

“Facilitation: by Design changed the way I view myself as a designer. The jam-packed two days instilled confidence in my ability to facilitate a workshop and even gave me a binder of tools to use when things veer off the path.” —Nick M.

“The Facilitation: by Design workshop gave me a whole new toolbox for facilitating small meetings that in the past have been unfocused, unorganized and ineffective. Now I feel that I can handle most situations I encounter.” —Darren M.

“Whether you’re a designer or not, the tools and techniques will help you work smarter and yield better results by learning how to plan for and create the most successful collaborations.” —Joan B.

“It was a great opportunity for me to learn the tools and skills I would need to lead a group through the design thinking process—or any type of group involvement, for that matter.” —Jillfrances G.
