Overview

Assembling a strong and diverse team of facilitators takes substantial lead time, and many participants will want a sense of who's facilitating before committing to attend the event. Facilitators should be:

  • leaders by example
  • good communicators who are will to guide and drive dialog rather than lecture or formally present.

It is recommended that facilitators possess strong non-profit experience more than strong tech knowledge; while the latter is important to good facilitation, the former insures a healthy and accessible focus for discussions.
