Overview
A network of people in Bangkok interested in the art of facilitation. Open to all, regardless of background or professional interest. People new to facilitation most welcome as are experienced facilitators and trainers. Only qualifications: interest in facilitation and like to have fun! All our meeting (usually each year between 4-6 ) are facilitated on a voluntary basis. Topics vary widely. This year we had meetings, for example on Scenario building and Facilitating cross-cultural teams. All our meetings illustrate the principles of facilitation as articulated by the International Association of Facilitators. Facilitators visiting Bangkok are invited to share their knowledge on a pro-bono basis. In 2008 the FFT also supports hosting the 11th Regional IAF conference held in August 2008 in Bangkok
