Welcome to Facilitation Stories, where we discover how facilitators ended up in the profession, and how facilitation methods, principles and techniques are used more widely. Brought to you by IAF England and Wales. For more information on our chapter, click here.

Today we’re introducing a new quarterly feature “Chapter Chat”. As many listeners know, the England and Wales chapter is just one of the many IAF volunteer-led chapters globally, all working within 6 regions across 65 countries. While all chapters are united under the IAF vision and operate in accordance to the IAF Code of Ethics they are all run in a slightly different way, and reflect the context they’re working within.

So alongside our episodes capturing individual facilitators’ stories, each quarter we’re going to chat to people leading other chapters, about how they see the status of facilitation where they are, and the history, priorities, current projects and aspirations for their chapter.

To kick us off, we have a special episode reflecting on a year of facilitation in the EME region, where Helene and Nikki talk to Tamara Zivadinovic Regional Director of the Europe and Middle East Region of the IAF.

Tamara talks about her own facilitation practise, how she got involved in IAF and her her journey to becoming Regional Director. 

She explains to Helene and Nikki what are your main responsibilities are as regional Director and what has been happening in the Region over the last year.

She talks about celebrating the many IAF volunteers and about her proudest moments as Regional Director.

Tamara shares what is coming up in 2024, her hopes for the region and finishes up with an ask for the members of the region.
