Facilitators Conference 2022

About 7th IAF India Facilitators Conference 2022

This annual event is back after a gap of 2 years to empower and enable aspiring and seasoned facilitators to polish their art.

The art of facilitation entails knowing the best methods & techniques that foster authentic communication amongst groups. In business, it means setting the context through the right structure and behaviour so that a group of people reach an outcome that everyone feels responsible for, and fully committed to. It aims at making the conversations easier, effective, and more productive, to accomplish desired objectives.

In today's dynamic global workplaces, facilitation plays a vital role in any interaction within the workings of businesses, governments and communities. It focuses on the process rather than the content to ensure that the group ideates, discusses, reflects on diverse perceptions and viewpoints.

Why Attend

The 7th IAF conference offers a multitude of learning sessions with subject matter experts across the country. An extended opportunity to experience and experiment the best-in-class facilitation tools. Join this unique journey of self-exploration & self-transformation! There is more to the Conference as shown below:



  • Discover Group Process Facilitation methods to enhance consensus & efficiency at meetings
  • Get first hand insights into the benefits of a facilitative approach
  • Learn & practice multiple ready-to-use processes
  • Further hone IAF competencies

Conference Theme & Logo

Facilitation uses creative processes to engage individuals and groups to harness collective insights, enhancing their belief in the synergistic power of ‘We’!

This powerful and immersive experience inspires commitment and ownership, resulting in performance and behaviors that can transform organizations and communities.

When humans are engaged and inspired, the impact they create is unparalleled!

Our theme is inspired by the experiences of the world during these two years. While Process Facilitation works through Divergence to Convergence we couldn't think of a better theme than this.

Facilitation positively influences in:

  • Resolving group conflicts
  • Sensitising about diversity
  • Building consensus to enable decision making
  • Enabling organisational change
  • Tapping group creativity
  • Planning strategically in an all-inclusive approach

A logo is just not a communication, it's the Identity. It's the period at the end of sentence. Not the sentence itself.- Sagi Haviv

We weaved our logo for the 7th IAF India Facilitators Conference with the same belief. C stands for 'Cosmos’. The waves within are reflecting Lush Green aura of Kochi (Kerala). All together, merged with the chosen colour themes of International Association of Facilitators. With this, we bring together the colour palette of facilitation world.

This logo is reflective of the cosmos that we all inherit with in. The microcosm of this cosmos would come alive during 7th IAF India Facilitators Conference 2022!
