gemaker was engaged to facilitate a strategic planning day for VPAC INNOVATIONS. In addition to designing the structure of the meeting, sourcing a guest speaker and summarising the meeting output, the gemaker team was also required to seek feedback from, and engage with, staff at all levels to ensure a collaborative and valuable session which would provide outputs for the 2014/2015 VPAC INNOVATIONS Business Plan.
The Strategic Planning Day was a significant success. The feedback received from my staff was that the session was ‘one of the best planning days we have ever had’. Athena engaged with the staff quickly to encourage active and authentic participation by all members and she was also able to provide a well thought out and detailed written report. Detailed data was balanced and captured the essence of the team consensus from the session.
