We'll shortly be launching a new look to the website. Please excuse us whilst we make some changes....



The key to good facilitation (and change that sticks) is ????? focusing on the people.

Good facilitation is a very complex task.

How many meetings have you attended where objectives aren’t clearly stated or agreed, let alone achieved – where all the parties don’t contribute – where the outcome isn’t clearly and efficiently documented?

It’s very hard for a team leader or member to run events when they are part of the team itself.

Whatever the situation, an independent facilitator will ensure that colleagues’ time isn’t wasted and that you don’t walk out of the door feeling that you have not achieved enough. 

Many thanks for your excellent facilitation. Facilitation is all about cutting through the behavioural barriers in meetings to make them more effective. We have worked with several members of the JA Consulting team, from meetings to large reviews of 70+

Why is facilitation so important?

It helps teams to work together more effectively

To implement any change successfully, a positive environment must be created where everyone feels heard and understood and where ideas can be freely exchanged.

It helps organisations achieve positive and sustainable change

By improving communication, increasing collaboration, and building trust, facilitation can help you achieve your goals more quickly and with better results.

We facilitate this process by helping your team identify the root cause of your challenges and designing customised solutions to address them.

“You guys seem to have captured the energy and the teamwork which was contagious across the 2 days. Well done and thank you for your professional facilitation and leadership across the event. It was a great atmosphere, fun, enlightening, vibrant and creative, qualities which are not always easy to establish with a big mixed group.”

Partner, Professional Services


“All the sessions JAC ran were expertly facilitated … they showed the skill and flexibility to adapt the programme agenda according to the flow of dialogue and the input of the participants. It is extremely rare to find a capability development partner as willing and committed to adjust their work - often in ‘real time’ - to the environment we work in.”

Anon, Defence systems provider


"You have an uncanny ability to manage the process and focus on the key issues whilst maintaining robust independence. Despite operating in a friendly, flexible and facilitative manner, it's clear that a lot of planning has gone into whatever you do. A great team that brings with them success."

Mike Cherry, MBE. Director, Secure Telecommunications

JA Consulting (JAC) is experienced in providing highly effective workshops to clients. However, when one of our leading consultants had to design and deliver seven tailored events in one month, we knew effective facilitation would be key and would need an incredibly efficient and clinical approach to preparation and planning logistics. Here’s how it was done and the lessons learnt.
