I love the challenge of understanding and responding creatively and flexibly to the needs and dynamics of the groups I facilitate, whilst ensuring that the objectives of the event are achieved.

I am a skilled facilitator with experience facilitating a wide range of organisational events and forums including staff development, team building, strategic planning, stakeholder consultations and focus groups, and networking events.

Over the span of my career, I have facilitated sessions for a wide range of organisations spanning health, education, community, government, membership-based organisations, elite sport, and the corporate sector. 

I am a member of the Victorian Facilitators Network, and the Australian Facilitators Network.

I bring a warm, collaborative and focussed approach to my facilitation work.

“Swagata was a very experienced and effective facilitator. She set the tone for the day with a fun and engaging activity, and ensured that all who came participated well”.
Lived experience carer consultant, Mental Health Australia
“Thank you for such a great morning and for being such a wonderful facilitator. Talking about my personal journey with mental health is not easy, especially in front of a large group of strangers. Despite my nerves, you made me feel comfortable to share my story and actively participate with the crowd. Thank you for giving me the courage to share my voice with such compassion and attentiveness.”

“As a facilitator Swagata creates calm and professional spaces that allow participants to take ownership of their contributions and decisions”.

“Swagata facilitated our  whole of agency meeting with over 100 people in the room. She provided the right amount of scaffolding, understanding when to step in and get us moving, and when to step back and hold the space. I feel completely safe and confident in Swagata’s skills to hold process – no matter how complex, large or small”

“Swagata is able to effectively engage staff in solution focused discussions about complex issues. She is a skilled & knowledgeable clinician which contributes to her ability to engage a varied audience with credibility“.
National Mental Health Service
“Swagata facilitated a series of network meetings for us last year, as part of our Working across Cultures in the NDIS project. The meetings includes small group discussion, presentations and question to a panel of experts from the community and government sector, including people with lived experience of disabilities.
Swagata’s considerable skills were demonstrated by keeping the energy up throughout the 3-hour discussions, ensuring everyone had a chance to be heard.
We found Swagata to be reliable, responsive and a pleasure to work with.”

I can confidently recommend Swagata’s high quality and professional work. If you chose to work with her, I can say for sure that you are in great safe hands.”
