Authentic heart-based facilitation skills that make a powerful impact.

Supporting Your Practice . . .

This 4-day course covers principles and practice of facilitating from the stage. Content is King!” Or is it?  Your content is only as good as your delivery. If people don’t receive what you’re giving, then your sharing becomes pointless.  Learn how to deliver your material in a way that is both authentically heart-based and makes a powerful impact on your audience. Discover how to make your audience want more of what you have to offer. 

Engage in the interactive experiences of the Foundation of Facilitation Course. This course is highly experiential. All practice presentations will be video recorded for you to review. 

The Foundation of Facilitation supports your practice:

  • Nothing builds your business and brings in clients faster than speaking.
  • Learn presentation skills that are effective on stage, in front of a camera, and in communicating one-on-one.
  • Learn effective ways to deliver your message.
  • Engage your class participants so they want to learn more.
  • Learn how to sell your programs and services without selling your programs and services.

Join us in Calgary.

Because of the highly experiential nature of this course, the Foundation of Facilitation is only taught in‑person.

TRUST, TRUST, TRUST! I have it in spades for Sharon and Ed. I don't say this lightly. I feel they have delivered everything they promised and more. I have not regretted one moment spent in their trainings.

Sound is such an amazing tool for healing, but being taught by Ed and Sharon was really special. Thank you for your knowledge and your magic. Looking forward to learning more in the future and how this will assist in my personal healing and professional life.
