Meeting & Conference Facilitation

Whether a small local gathering or a large-scale corporate event, Business of People® takes groups of individuals and helps them engage with one another to work more effectively in any situation.

Your time is valuable, and the hours or days that you set aside must be productive. Whether in our office in Columbus, Ohio, at another site or via teleconference, we help set the ground rules then work toward building consensus through open dialogue and a free exchange of ideas

Business of People facilitates for:

  • Board retreats
  • Governmental and congressional meetings
  • Strategic planning processes
  • Conferences
  • Conflict management
  • Corporate retreats
  • Annual meetings
  • Special events
  • Facilitation trainings
  • And any other type of gathering you have planned

As impartial observers, Business of People facilitators understand group norms and will adapt to the individuals in the room. As you focus on the goal at hand, we steer effective, solutions-based conversation.

We break down barriers to collaboration.

Michael Buckingham, CEO, Strawser
“Business of People has given us the guidance to help us identify our future and the training to educate us to get there. Their effectiveness is outstanding.”
