Mirjami Sipponen-Damonte is a Certified Professional Facilitator and Regional Director for Europe and Middle East at the International Association of Facilitators. Through her company, Xpedio, she supports international corporations across Europe in developing organisational culture, strategy and teams, as well as growing facilitation skills. She has been awarded with Gold Facilitation Impact Award on excellence in facilitation. Mirjami works frequently with project managers and ICT experts on their facilitation and communication skills.
A skilled facilitator is able to engage the team and stakeholders – and keep focus on the objectives at the same time. Facilitation is about managing effectively a multi-meeting process (such as a project) with a clear focus, applying suitable participatory methods that allow everyone to be heard, and handling group dynamics and even challenging participants constructively.
In the Conference Mirjami will drive an interactive session where participants can experience how they can GROW as project managers through developing their facilitation skills.
