The conference theme was:Innovating, Promoting and Applying! Seeking New Facilitation Heights and Insights.
ToP Network members presented the following sessions:
A team of ICA Associates and ToP Network colleagues coordinated and planned for each of these opportunities; they are John Miller, Suzanne Esber, Jo Nelson, Janice Weber in cooperation with IAF reps Helen Wythe and Trevor Sinclair.ToP Network members designed a ToP facilitated session - Peer Rendezvous' - for the opening reception. Network members also provided goodie bags with sample Focused Conversations and a description of the Flip Chart Consensus Workshop method. Participants were encourage to apply these methods during their peer-to-peer meetings.
This sponsorship and working together represented an opportunity to deepen ICA's and the ToP Network relationship with IAF. At the East African Gathering, (article above), the African Director from IAF attended for a day, and great conversations about collaborative efforts took place there, as they did in Banff.
