AFN Conference 2019 - What the World Needs Now

Coming up this week is the 2019 AFN Conference, which will be held in Brisbane from 24 - 26 July. The theme for this year is “What the world needs now – the contribution and value of facilitation”. The line up of workshops is fantastic, and will include:

  • Cross Cultural Capacities with Carol Vale – we will explore Goondeen with Uncle Albert and Bill Synott.

  • Innovation in Community and Organisational Leadership with Dee Brooks and Mel Geitch

  • Cooking with stories with Cathryn Lloyd and Andrew Rixon

  • Foresighting with the 3 horizons process with Michelle Walker, Jai Allison and Rachel Apelt.

  • Exploring technique for online facilitation with Jill Chivers, Bob Dick, Andrew Rixon and Stephen Thorpe

The program for this year’s conference is innovative, different and dynamic…. all attendees will have the opportunity to offer and host a session as part of the open space format of the Conference. All attendees are also placed on the conference website as contributors to the Conference - making it a truly collaborative conference experience.

A little bit about the AFN….

The Australasian Facilitators Network (AFN) is a self-organising community of practitioners based in Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia and the Pacific, who have been meeting as the AFN since 1998 (and informally, with other identities, since 1992). Carol is a proud and active member of the group.

The AFN focus is on working, learning and sharing with each other. Members share a passion for facilitation and participatory practice in pursuit of better communication, understanding, collaboration and harmony in workplaces, communities, and the world at large.
