Workshops are a highly effective way of bringing people together to share knowledge and develop new ideas – to be successful workshops need careful planning, skilled facilitation and insightful reporting.

When we bring people together to share knowledge and develop ideas, their different perspectives, experiences and backgrounds can help generate highly innovative solutions. Carefully designed and skilfully facilitated workshops help ensure group discussions are as effective as possible.

The workshops described on this website deal with three key challenges faced by every organisation; the mapping of knowledge, the setting of strategy and the delivery of innovation.

The workshops have been structured to allow exploration of both broad context and detail – workshop participants bring their wide experience, tacit knowledge and individual perspectives. Through structured discussion each workshop has delivered new insights, innovations and connections. Many of the workshops have led to the development of detailed strategy maps to inform future organisational activity.

Taking a structured approach to workshop design and delivery will help ensure this strategic investment has the maximum possible impact. Skilfully facilitated workshops can be a very effective way of bringing new ways of working into an organisation.

The workshops have used carefully designed methods to unlock creativity – to generate ideas, but also to evaluate concepts systematically and develop achievable future plans.

The workshops have been choreographed to capture information, insights and new knowledge – the format and structure of all workshop materials has been carefully planned to align with the future information needs of stakeholders.

All the workshops have been designed and facilitated by Tom Inns. Over the last 25 years Tom has held many senior leadership positions – always delivering on a major change agenda. Tom has considerable experience in using workshops as a way of pooling knowledge, setting strategy and driving innovation, particularly in businesses the university sector and for interdisciplinary projects
