Meeting Facilitation


External meeting facilitation allows all stakeholders to participate in the conversation and ensures that your meeting stays on task and on time.


External meeting facilitators

  • have no vested interest in a specific outcome.

  • can create a neutral environment.

  • are willing to ask difficult questions.

  • can move the group forward through challenges. 


Kristy is trained in ToP (Technology of Participation) group processes designed by the Institute of Cultural Affairs.

ToP group processes help groups think, talk and work together by providing facilitators with structured methods to:

  • Recognize and honor contributions of all

  • Let a group deal with more data in less time

  • Pool individual contributions into larger more informative and inclusive patterns

  • Welcome diversity while minimizing polarization and conflict
