Isobel McConnan is a professional facilitator and coach who’s been working with groups and teams working for change over the last 30 years. Her experience of facilitation began as a teacher in Palestine, continued through her leadership of a health NGO, and expanded into her current facilitation practice. At the last count, she’s designed and facilitated over 65 events, from small team meetings through to large groups and conferences, in culturally diverse and often challenging contexts.
Thematic areas have included social protection, climate change adaptation, governance and active citizenship, gender, ageing, tax justice, HIV/AIDS, health, conflict and fragility, disaster risk reduction, children involved in armed conflict, quality and accountability. She loves creating spaces where people can bring more of themselves, have the conversations that matter and build the relationships they need to get things done.
