In-House Client Testimonials

"I have worked with the Masterful Faciltiation Institute over the past few years to build the Ontario Power Authority’s organizational capability in facilitation skills. We call it one of our “mission critical competencies"; we believe it is a core competency needed to achieve our strategic objectives. The instructors are what I call “Master Facilitators". They model the way it is to be done and can also train others in how to do it (and have fun at the same time)!  The OPA has had a full range of programs delivered by them: the Confident Facilitator, Engaging Facilitator, Agile Facilitator, Strategic Facilitator and the Virtual Facilitator. In 2012 we are starting an “OPA Facilitators Network", an in-house roster of those who want to be called on for the opportunity to facilitate meetings that will contribute to achieving OPA’s goals and objectives. In the process they will learn about other areas of the business." Carol Pask, Manager, Learning and Organizational Development, HR, Ontario Power Authority
