Strategic event facilitation

Whether Contingency Planning, team building activities or a full corporate Strategy Session Strategic event facilitation is a specialist skill and should only be conducted by someone who has both the skill in strategic event facilitation and considerable operational experience.  

When strategic planning is done right, it is an indispensable leadership tool. There is no one right way to create a strategic plan, but there are plenty of wrong ways. All too often a strategic plan is designed using the latest mishmash of pop culture, motivational slogans and business buzz speak. A strategic plan crafted with such an approach can slow down performance or worse, mislead an entire organisation as the people within it blindly follow the strategic plan.

At NorthCo our original and pragmatic planning methodology has won fans around the world. Whether launching a new product, fighting a war or putting a man on the moon. We help leaders and their teams to create action-oriented strategic plans cutting through overconfident “can do’s” and exposing false can’t do’s.

Whether engaged to facilitate a single meeting or several, our role is to help design and manage critical strategic discussions. To be effective, these discussions must lead to measurable actions and outcomes. Beginning with objectives in mind, we help clients maintain a balance of process, content, and conversation. This ensures that strategies gain and hold momentum.
