Yamini hosted an organisational Story Telling evening for the Victorian Facilitation Network. Yamini facilitated a delightful session. It was a skillful blend of relevant, inspiring content coupled with a very engaging presentation style. And then on top of this, Yamini used processes that were highly participatory. Those present very much enjoyed the mix, as was...more evident in the hugely positive feedback.
