I am a facilitator who is fascinated by where ideas come from, and love helping groups spark ideas through my workshops.
I believe that everyone has something creative and unique to contribute to life. So my aim in the workshops I run is to encourage creativity and make sure all ideas are heard. I do this through techniques such as Lego Serious Play , improvisation and World Cafe .
I come from a teaching and training background (have a look at my LinkedIn page for more info: http://uk.linkedin.com/in/emmakonopka ) but it was when I started learning improvisation, and seeing all the amazing ideas generated on the spot, that I was inspired to start facilitating ideas generation. My workshops are based on the improvisation ethos of ‘accept and build’ – listening to each other, accepting ideas and building on them.
