A management meeting or offsite retreat represents a significant investment in time and cost. This process is made more effective by working with a neutral Excellerate facilitator who can design and implement a programme to meet your needs. While the planning and design of the process is key to achieving the desired outcomes, your facilitator will ensure that the event stays on track by expertly managing the process on the day.
Excellerate provides skilled facilitation through the use of powerful collaborative planning, problem solving and decision making processes to ensure engagement, focus and a productive group process so that team members and stakeholders leave energised, aligned and committed to clear agreements and action plans.

Excellerate has experience in working across a wide range of settings with small professional groups through to larger planning and consultation meetings.

"I just wanted to say a heart felt thank you. You did an awesome job of pulling the team together and highlighting what we needed to cover. I felt the links you made were excellent and the team got so much out of the day! Everyone had such a great day and we are closer because of this so thank you for all your hard work."
"Thank you for your work in facilitating our away-day. The feedback from the team has been very positive and we look forward in further developing the outputs and then sharing those results with the wider team."
