Your energy was great! And your intuitive reading of our group was spot-on. I feel I understand why consensus is so valuable in a deeper way. I also feel more confident and energized about fulfilling a facilitator’s role.
I felt the combination of skills you brought opened doors I hadn’t seen open here before.
The way you created a space where everyone seemed to be open and felt safe to open up is in this case a bit miraculous. You would be the first person I would come to at the time I needed to do this kind of work again with a group.

“This was probably the best event I attended during this conference.”
Tree is a charismatic, approachable facilitator who sets an excellent example of what inclusive, competent, sensitive facilitation looks like.
Tree’s enthusiasm for making meetings great is infectious! She’s a facilitator with skill and heart, and she’s ‘walked the talk’ in community. This short workshop gave me a myriad of ideas and practical suggestions to make meetings better—and more fun!
Thank you again for a great workshop. It was important to us that the workshop provide a positive springboard for future work, and this certainly did. I was especially glad to see the response of people who have been less engaged or reluctant to do work around emotional issues. Your […]
Tree helped us make a cultural shift in our organization. Our meetings have become more positive and productive. Specifically she taught us how to be “assertively neutral” as facilitators, which is helping us move to solutions in places we might have stayed stuck in the past.
