I have over 25 years community development experience, supporting groups to grow and develop. This has involved working with a range of community groups, voluntary organisations,  and stage agencies.

I enjoy working with groups, helping to review progress, planning for the future, learning new skills to develop their organisation.

I have trained with various organisations in facilitation skills up to Train The Trainer Level. I’ve recently become a certified member of the Mediators Institute of Ireland.

Community and Voluntary organisations in Ireland are the backbone to our way of life, providing an community_2invaluable range of services, facilities and activities. Now and then, groups need assistance to address an issue, to learn a new skill or to make new plans. I am pleased to offer a range of training and supports designed to meet the needs of your group or organisation.

Benefits to your organisation include –

  • Focus; your organisation will have clearer purpose & plans
  • Participation; all members will be facilitated to contribute
  • Building Consensus; ensuring buy-in and commitment from the whole group
  • Better Meetings; learn how to have more effective meetings
  • Community Involvement; through consulting your community in developing your plans and activities

The use of a facilitated approach ensures participative, enjoyable and effective training and development for your organisation.

My website provides information on my services to groups, my experience, and feedback from clients. I will be glad to take your call or query to develop training specifically designed to meet the needs of your group or organisation
