Facilitating Strategic Planning Sessions

Improve team performance through evaluation

This one-day workshop unpacks the complexities around organising and facilitating strategic and business planning sessions.

Often our plans become beautifully written documents that sit on a shelf, rather than becoming a living action plan for the team – or if they are implemented, there is difficulty in gaining buy-in and commitment to following through.



Front Foot Strategic Consulting has been awarded accreditation status as a provider of Education and Training in terms of the South African Qualification Authority Act.

All Front Foot workshop presenters are subject-matter experts.
