Too often, a facilitator is seen as the external person who independently chairs or moderates a discussion, workshop or conference. This is less than half the story.
I use a coaching conversation to clarify the goals.
I then translate that discussion into a careful, timed structure and facilitate the event itself.
Joanne Rule MBE
I have a breadth and depth of experience. I facilitated the start-up of the UK Advisory Forum on Ageing for the Department of Work and Pensions. I supported the work of Informed Choices on Cancer Screening for whom I also facilitated a citizens’ jury.
For two years I facilitated for Tesco in its engagement with health stakeholders. Recent facilitations include events for St Mary’s University, London, and for Macmillan Cancer Support in partnership with NHS England.

INNOVATIVE EVENT DESIGN & FACILITATION SERVICES
“Joanne is an extraordinary facilitator who supports people to think out loud, so that they can communicate honestly and without rancour. She brings her own high level communication skills to the service of the objective, without getting in the way.
She brilliantly facilitated a citizens’ jury when I was leading Informed Choice about Cancer Screening and I’ve seen her in action in many different settings, including leading staff listening events in a clinical setting. She’s great at what she does”
