Using an independent facilitator to run your meeting means that you can be free to participate. You can focus on the topic at hand without being worried about keeping the meeting on track, managing different participants or being unfairly judged as having too much influence or bias on the process.
Using an independent facilitator also ensures that:
- You have a process design that identifies a clear purpose and outcomes
- All participants have the opportunity to contribute
- Your assumptions are ‘tested’ through having the situation viewed from a ‘fresh perspective’

Undertaking strategic planning provides you and your team with the time and space to consider ‘why’ you’re doing what you’re doing. Then consider ‘what’s possible’ and identify how you’ll make it happen. Importantly – as my colleague, Bevan Bessen, says – it’s all about transformation.
When undertaking strategic planning, we’ll help you to:
- Gain clarity and agreement on what you’re really aiming to achieve and the legacy you want to leave
- Test the assumptions about your current situation and the key influencers of this
- Gain clarity on the BIG challenges that you’ll need to address
- Develop a realistic and accountable pathway to achieve your goals
Recent strategic planning processes include workshops with:
- South Metropolitan Health Service
- Broome Chamber of Commerce and Industry
- Southern Rangelands Pastoral Alliance
