What makes this training special

Unlike other facilitation trainings, we fully integrate virtual, on-site, and hybrid settings into every aspect we cover. The course was developed out of the passion for facilitation which we hope to pass on to you.

The training is very interactive and responds to individual concerns and needs. In fact, it is much more than a training. It is a learning journey which - if you choose so - does not simply stop after 4 weeks.

Martin Reinfeldt is a certified systemic organisational consultant, trainer, facilitator and graduate in public administration with 22 years of professional experience, including 6 years in Benin and Tunisia. Since 2014 he has been working as an independent consultant with a focus on consulting, facilitation and training. Having traveled the world for his clients for many years, he increasingly focussed on remote team collaboration and virtual facilitation of workshops, team, and stakeholder processes. 

Martin has carried out numerous assignments in international cooperation, the public sector and the private sector, quickly understanding the particularities of each work context as well as group dynamics. Among his workshop attendees were ministers, high-level managers, generals, ambassadors, a UN Undersecretary General. But he also facilitates the work of small agile teams and is at ease with team members, bringing their babies to meetings and workshops.

He appreciates interactive and agile methods when facilitating, while always building onto the 'form-follows-function' principle. In his trainings, he focusses on aspects that have a high relevance and have proven to be particularly effective in group facilitation.

I greatly appreciated working with Martin; he’s not only easy to work with, he has exceptional people and facilitation skills, really takes in what his client is trying to achieve and draws upon a great toolbox of ideas to design innovative and interesting workshop programs.
