Robin Parsons, IAF Certified Professional Facilitator

Expert facilitation for real business results


I facilitate groups through strategic planning, business process development, decision making, alignment, and team development discussions. I work with all kinds of groups – big and small, public and private, for profit and not for profit over a cross section of industries, so they can have the conversations they need to have to make the decisions they need to make.

Need virtual meeting facilitation? No problem – I have run productive, online meetings for up to 100 participants.

  • Has the pandemic taken a toll on your team culture and relationships? Is it time for a reboot?
  • Are you part of a leadership team or business unit that never seems to find the time to talk to one another?
  • Is alignment and communication among stakeholders crucially important but difficult to achieve?
  • Are you wondering why your previous group sessions have felt unproductive or gruelling?
  • Are you wanting to achieve higher levels of engagement from the people in the room?

I’ve been there. And I know how to help you tackle it.

Take part in an expertly facilitated session that’s customized for your team’s priorities and environment.

With a professional process facilitator, you’ll eliminate “on the shelf” syndrome and come away with real insights you can put into action the next day.

Take part in well-planned, results-orientated workshops that will engage your group, discover their thinking, co-create solutions and improve commitment to outcomes.

Why Robin? I’m a Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF) with 10+ years of experience leading groups like yours. More importantly, I’ve been where you are. After spending 25 years in the private sector, I have seen the tremendous capacity of organizations remained untapped for want of effective dialogue and engagement. And I wanted to be the one to change that.

Today, I’m here to help organizations genuinely talk and listen to each other and make decisions.

LISTEN: Current&Critical: Conflict Resolution – A better way forward

Western Canada seems to be polarized lately. It’s either left versus right. Oil and gas or environmentalism. Us against them. Whichever side you’re on, it seems we’ve lost the ability to have a dialogue rather than a debate. So, how can we move forward without a clear consensus and direction?

In this episode, Robin Parsons, Dave Robertson and Tyler Chisholm discuss the importance of building a consensus through communication and how we can get back to having a dialogue instead of a debate when it comes to the way forward. Have a listen!
