Stakeholder Engagement & Public Participation
Carole is a member in good standing with IAP2 Canada, the International Association of Public Participation. She has completed the Foundations training program in Effective Planning and Effective Techniques for Public Participation. Consequently, she is skilled in the IAP2 Spectrum of Public Participation.
Public engagement is a legal requirement for many public bodies before approving policy changes, strategies or budgets.
This can be a daunting task; especially with new leaders or board members.
A good approach to strategic planning is to understand your current situation. Carole meets with all clients to discuss what exactly is the desired outcome and what success looks like.
Do you already have a strategic plan or is this a brand-new exercise? If you have a plan, have you attained your goals and objectives? Has the landscape changed in your organization, industry or community?
A facilitator can help determine who you serve, develop goals and objectives, identify values, and create mission and vision statements.

Meeting Management & Facilitation
If your meetings are getting bogged down, it is difficult to remain neutral, or you struggle to manage the participants and reach expectations, it may be time for external help.
A facilitator plans, guides, and manages a group event to ensure the objectives are met effectively, with clear thinking, good participation and full buy-in from everyone who is involved.
Professional Development Learning
Professional development learning can be a very formal process, such as a workshop, or can be informal, such as networking and sharing ideas from like-minded professionals in a community of practice.
A variety of workshops and events are offered by Spicer Facilitation.
Learning can be customized to suit your organization and tailored for in-person, virtual live facilitator-led or on-demand eLearning delivery.
Add a learning event to your next conference, AGM or professional development day.
