Brand Workshop & Concept Workshop
Been a super interesting week. I got to try out some of the brand workshop suggestions earlier in the week. The 'if the brand were...' exercises as icebreakers worked well. From there the GV 3-hour Brand Sprint was used. The brand personality sliders and audiences exercises were the ones that resonated most. For anybody using them, careful on the brands either side of the sliders. In the latter part of the week, I facilitated a 'Concept Workshop' to help a customer ideate on how to build a new PS product suite, iteself a bunch of workshops wrapped into a brand. Used many of the #AJ&Smart design sprint tools. I added a bunch of 'canvases/cards and exercises to help the customer pinpoint: Audiences, GTM canvas, Silent Note Taking, New Product Factsheet and Experiments to run to bring the new experience to life. For those doing something similar, the learning here was that thinking about the GTM, tactics to sell and experiments to run grounded the attendees in reality and helped make informed / practical choices. Very basic example attached. Have a great weekend all.

Do you find when you do a Brand Workshop that the people in the room are able to articulate all the parts you need to bring together a Brand Strategy, or is it sometimes a case of them working them out there and then?
New Here!
Hey folks! Living in Boston, USA. Excited to build community with other facilitators. I feel like there aren't many people who see the world the way a facilitator does and must admit that I carry some pride in calling myself a facilitator. I love what I do and sometimes wonder if there is some spiritual aspect to the work holding space. I like noticing things, especially when they help me recognizes something I though I knew but took for granted. I find a great deal of joy in those small moments. Thanks for reading!

@Asena Ayse 100% yes. Also the more our world is bombarded with distractions and material things, the more valuable holding space is.
📍Where is everyone from?📍
Hello Facilitators👋 I'm really curious about where everyone is from. I'd love to make this a mega post where we can see how diverse the Facilitator Club community is. Who knows, you might find a lot more people in your area than you thought! Once I have lots of answers on this post, I want to make a nice graph!

@Marlane Washington Thanks, i'm learning a lot.
Quick Introduction
Hi Everyone. Recently approved new member, taking some time to absorb the wisdom of everyone on this group - so great to see the generosity of spirit and collaboration. Not new to using facilitation skills but new to facilitating as a means to make a living in its own right. Excited to see where this new venture takes me

Welcome @Damian Kingsbury
Do you have a Thought Partner?
Many facilitators are also solopreneurs, which means that when it comes to creating workshops they are working on their own. But, it would be nice to have someone to bounce ideas off or to co-create with. We may ask a friend for thoughts and comments (or post on here), but we don't go into depth due to time constraints. A friend of mine had this problem for a Creative Workshop she was going to run and reached out to me. After some discussion we came to the realization that what she was looking for was a Thought Partner. Take a look at the video we made about this, and then add your comments or thoughts below. And if you would like to explore hiring me as a Thought Partner, reach out 😀

I have them for some areas of my life, but not the facilitation part, that's a great idea.
