Who we are

About IAF India

IAF India is an energising community of facilitators from diverse walks of life. With presence in 6 Hubs across the country, IAF India has been making strides in bringing facilitation to Corporates and now the Academia too.



After 2 people attended the Asia Conference in August 2006, the first facilitation related association was formed with 5 people in June 2009 and was called the Bangalore Facilitator Network.

Our Leadership Team

To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
- Friedrich Nietzsche
Our hubs are held together and led by dynamic, inspiring people who go the distance in motivating members to both contribute and participate in promoting the power of facilitation. Here are the people who give of their time, effort, capabilities and energy in leading the Hub’s, and Chapter’s activities.
