Meeting Facilitation Services

Meetings can be a blessing or a curse depending on how they are designed and how they are facilitated. Many wise leaders recognize that the best way to have peaceful, productive meetings that meet their objectives is to hire a professional meeting facilitator. Kathleen Oweegon has over 15 years of experience designing and facilitating meetings for 5 to 400 participants. Her training and experience as a professional mediator make her the ideal facilitator for meetings where tension, controversy, or conflict are anticipated. Whether you need a staff or Board retreat, a planning meeting, a meeting about how best to use limited resources, or any other type of meeting, Kathleen can help your meetings run smoothly and efficiently to achieve your goals and best meet the needs of all stakeholders.
