Engineering creative facilitation for Atkins, a world leading engineering consultancy
Atkins is one of the world’s most successful engineering consultancies and has a team of highly skilled consultants and facilitators who are experts in their field.
While the company is a world leader in delivering training in technical project management, it is also aware that the organisations it works with increasingly value other skillsets such as creative thinking, innovation and problem solving.
To this end, it engaged Laughology for our expertise in developing creative and innovative practices and mindsets in teams and organisations. In a ‘train the trainer’ event, we worked with Atkins’ own facilitators and consultants experts and delivered two days of creative facilitation which covered a wide range of subjects, including managing challenging groups and developing creativity and innovative thinking. In the workshops, groups developed their own presentations on work-based challenges, brain-stormed ideas and gave feedback.
They went away with a set of resources and practical tools to help engage large and small groups and, after two-days of Laughology magic, were skilled up to creatively facilitate their own sessions. Just some of the Atkins team said ‘It was really engaging with lots of different applications’ ‘Really great and easy to use ideas and resources’ ‘Has given me lots to think about with lots of tools and empowerment to implement them’
