Meeting / Retreat Facilitation

With over a quarter-century of experience in a consultative role, Ed brings a deep understanding of the value third-party facilitation adds to business meetings and retreats. Recognizing the challenge of engaging in discussions while leading them, he is dedicated to ensuring clients can concentrate on the substance of their conversations, freeing them from the process complexities of running the meeting.

Ed’s extensive background in steering a diverse range of meetings, from intimate gatherings to large-scale conferences, and his adeptness in covering various business topics showcase his versatility. His commitment to personal growth is evident in his continuous skill enhancement, having participated in premier facilitation training programs. Ed’s approach is highly personalized; he leverages an array of tools and techniques tailored to each client’s unique needs, steering clear of one-size-fits-all solutions.

Beyond facilitating, Ed thrives in peer-based learning settings, currently leading six leadership groups for Vistage International, and after 14 years, recently retired from orchestrating semi-annual best practice meetings for Associated Pest Services. This experience underscores his capability to foster environments where diverse thoughts and ideas flourish, embodying Capacity Building Solutions’ belief in the power of cognitive diversity and collaboration as foundations for success.

Looking for a coach is no easy task. In 2010 I decided to take the journey of finding a business coach to help grow me personally and professionally. I found Ed through other trusted business leaders, and my life has changed ever since. Not only is he well read but has great practical experience and asks the right questions at the right time. He always provides me with impactful information that keeps my skills on par with the demands of any business leader. Ed has helped my company and I through the ups and downs and will be there in the future to help us grow. If you are ready for a coach and ready to share and get vulnerable. Ed is the coach for you. He will make you a better person.

Ed Robinson has been an invaluable resource for me in my growth with my company and my life. The time spent with him has helped me deal with an ever changing landscape in the current business environment. Ed has been direct and supportive of my progress and critical when necessary. He has provided clarity with his insight and experience. He has the ability to cut through to the root of an issue and provide advice and guidance in discovering the best path forward. I have found him to be genuine and willing to share his own experiences, to be part of the solution. I believe in order to achieve this level of consciousness Ed's motivation is to make those he associates with better in all phases of life.
Response from the owner: Thank you Warren. It is a privilege to work with you!
