Gary is currently the IAF Europe (acting) Conferences and Professional Development Lead and in a few weeks time he will be participating in the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) Europe conference 2010, 15th – 17th October, being held this year in Helsinki, Finland with the theme of ‘Paradoxes in Facilitation’; where we will explore paradoxes, magical tools, myths and rites in our facilitation practice.

The conference is on the picturesque peninsula of Kallahti, in a beautiful wooded area a few steps from the shores of the Gulf of Finland – it looks a fantastic place to spend some time catching up with old and new friends active in the field of facilitation.

The conference programme is offered by Facilitator colleagues from around Europe and beyond and contains over 30 concurrent sessions and 4 pre-conference sessions.

There will be formal networking sessions under the heading ‘Punainen Lanka’ (Red Thread) where people can organise gatherings of like-minded folk around a common topic of interest and more informal get-togethers as suggested by the local team; including a range of Finnish activities and offerings to try, as well as time to meet, network and socialise with Facilitator peers; sharing facilitation experiences, stories, tools and techniques with one another.
