Facilitation & Training


No matter how expert in-house staff are at planning and running meetings, there are often times when organisations identify a need for an external facilitator – someone to bring independence, neutrality, and a new perspective.

Our facilitation team works with clients to plan and run outcome-focused meetings. These range from stakeholder consultations, strategic planning sessions with company Boards/CEOs, to management workshops and departmental-wide planning days.

Prior to the meeting, we help:

  • identify/confirm the purpose of the workshops and desired outcomes
  • identify attendees and develop the agenda
  • design the group processes to attain the desired results

During the meeting, we:

  • keep the meeting on track and manage the group process
  • encourage participation from all and foster solutions
  • note unresolved issues for later debate

Post the meeting, if required, we:

  • write up the key outcomes/results
  • provide counsel on addressing unresolved issues


Day & Hodge Associates also conducts workshops to support and enhance in-house communications skills. These workshops are individually tailored to client needs and include:

  • How to develop a Communications Plan
  • Effective lobbying
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Media release writing
  • Email etiquette
