    Facilitation is such a broad brush with which to paint. Why is it, then, that so much of our work takes the form of workshops?

    Meeting our clients’ needs and desired outcomes requires a flexible approach – one that will sometimes take us beyond the workshop format. But what does that look like and how can we step into new ways of working?

    Joeri Schilders, founder of innovation specialists The Magic Sauce, is well versed in finding new ways to facilitate innovation and creativity. As you’ll soon hear for yourself in this episode, that experience has made him a goldmine of insights!
