Meeting-FacilitationHaving worked in consultative role with clients for almost 20 years, Ed understands the importance of 3rd party facilitation of  business meetings and retreats.  It’s difficult to participate  in the discussion when you are caught up with leading it.  Our job is to make it easy for you to focus on content while we manage process.

We have extensive experience facilitating meetings, retreats, and panel discussions on a wide variety of business and nonprofit topics.  Ed has managed meetings with groups ranging in size from just a few participants to several hundred.  Programs have ranged from  a couple of hours to several full days.  

Ed has been through some of the top facilitation training programs in the world and is continuously honing this skill. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have have many different tools and techniques to  bring to any client engagement.  The goal is always to customize the engagement  to fit the particulars of a given situation.  We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach.

Ed is also highly experienced working in a peer based learning environment with leaders across a broad spectrum of industries and businesses.  He currently chairs 3 CEO peer groups for Vistage International.  In addition, Ed designs and facilities a semi-annual business meeting for a large industry association.

At Capacity Building Solutions, our perspective is and always will be that diversity of ideas and opinions is a strength. Harnessing the various talents and abilities in the room is both a science and an art.  We strive to excel in this area.
