“I’ve been a facilitator at field days and seminars for a number of years as part of my farm consultancy role. I wasn’t sure what value I would get out of facilitator training. However, these new workshops really challenged me to reflect on my facilitation style. I now have a number of new tools to use when facilitating farmer discussions and groups that will add value to both their business and mine. It was a great chance to get some formal facilitation training after many years of learning on the run.” Stephen Thomson, Consultant, AgFirst
