This online bootcamp will combine theory with hands-on practice and real-time feedback to boost your skills as a facilitator of innovation.
Whether you're an innovation coach, internal innovator or transformation leader, your ability to facilitate diverse teams through a structured process is critical to the success of changes you are driving.
A great facilitator is able to define a clear intention for a process, guide people through the process of solving problems together, and redirect people when they notice things getting off track. It’s not about giving your participants all the answers - it’s about creating an environment where they feel empowered to figure it out for themselves.
This bootcamp will combine theory with hands-on practice and real-time feedback to boost your skills as a facilitator of innovation, no matter the context.
Our learning style is fast-paced, hands-on and immersive. You'll be applying new skills and mindsets throughout the bootcamp, and you'll walk away with a set of new tools to use in your facilitation work.
Facilitation is no longer just the realm of ODs or trainers. It is critical skill for any leader or internal change maker looking to influence and have impact. Effective facilitation is consistently rated as one of the most in-demand skills in the modern workplace.
This bootcamp is for leaders, coaches and facilitators who regularly guide groups of people through a structured process. Whether you're a seasoned facilitator, or just starting out, Facilitating Innovation will have something to grow your skills and for you to take away.
Just your creativity! This is a computer free workshop. We will provide all the tools required for prototyping and the canvases we will use throughout the session. You are welcome to take home all the materials used at the end of the session.

As Matt is fond of doing, in one word - 'Attend!'. SOMA workshops are insightful, and practical, and the team are generous with their time. You can generally apply the thinking during the sessions on your own work-in-progress so the time is well spent. Thanks again SOMA!
Great, unique training tailored to what I do in my role as Innovation Consultant. I am expected to facilitate design thinking sessions and whilst I have learned about design thinking methodology I was struggling to deliver it in a Workshop environment. This course was what I needed to complete the loop.
I found the session to be very practical. I'll definitely be able to use all the tools I've learnt in my day-to-day work.
Matt and Nate bring an awesome day, full of energy and good vibe. The quality of the content will be super usefull. Venue was great too.
Matt was an excellent facilitator and the content was easy to understand. The day was structured well with plenty of time to reflect on how to translate these new skills back into my workplace. Highly recommend not just for those working in innovation but anyone who facilitates workshops.
SoMA have some great resources to help with understanding design and facilitation concepts. Matt ran the workshop really well and made sure there was plenty of time for discussion and reflection. Definitely leading by example when it comes to facilitation!
The 90 minute dash packs a punch! A great learning, team building and personal development experience that equips you with tools to help confidently prepare and facilitate workshops.

This workshop has really broad appeal, being useful for people new to design thinking but also for people who work in that space already but maybe needed a refresher
"The content was awesome and I really felt inspired to take the first step - also Matt was a great facilitator and kept everyone motivated throughout the course - LOVED IT!"-
