Hello and greetings from London to the 2016 IAF Asia Pacific facilitators’ conference now starting in Taiwan, “From Mountain to Sea: Perceiving Systemic Change and the Transformative Role of Facilitation”
I am Martin Gilbraith, now President of ICA International and formerly Chair of IAF. I have been involved with both organisations for many years, and I am passionate about both – and about their different but complementary roles in promoting the power of facilitation worldwide.
So I am delighted to know that ICA is well represented at your IAF conference, and that Larry Philbrook, Laura Hsu and other colleagues are taking this opportunity to build connections between our two overlapping communities.
A new global joint working group has recently begun to explore how we might encourage greater connections and collaboration between ICA & IAF and their members worldwide, so this is a great example.
Thank you. Enjoy your conference! I look forward to following at #IAFAsia2016.
