  • Hi,

    I am interested in participating in this course (or others like it) – could you please confirm if it is being offered before the end of February, and if so, when and where? I am based in Vancouver, BC, but could also travel to Seattle.

  • Hi Heather,
    We are looking at venues for this training at the moment so we can’t confirm dates but we hope this training will go ahead in Feb or March. Our Vancouver training for March 22-23 is now sold out but we have opened a waiting list if you would like to join that.

  • Is there still space in the next two workshops part 1 and 2 in Seattle? I’m going to try and get a few of my peers to come with me. We are a portland company but I think the marketing group might really benefit from this workshop. Let me know. Thanks.

  • Hi- I have 3 questions: Is there still room in Creative Facilitation 1 & 2? Is the $300 cost for both? Do you offer credit or clock hours?
    ~Thank you, Laurel

  • hi, i am interested in participating in a workshop. do you teach on Whidbey Island too? i am teaching Fridays and Saturdays in Sept. and Oct so unable to come to your Seattle trainings. I could come November 20/21 Fac. 2, but i don’t know if you require Fac 1 first. let me know thanks, heidi

  • Hello Heidi! I’m sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We’d love for you to join us for CF2–you don’t have to take CF1 first! Let us know if we can help you further.

  • Hello Laurel, I apologize for the delay in response! Thank you for your questions. There is room in both sessions at this point. We hope you can join us! Clock hours are available for an additional fee. The cost is $300 per two-day training, so it would be $600 for both. However, some scholarship funding is available. Please reach out if you have any further questions.
