After a long and difficult pandemic, my team in the Department of Foreign Affairs came together for the first time in 26 months. Many colleagues were meeting for the first time in person. Hannah’s excellent facilitation helped us to quickly re-establish an esprit de corps. Her solutions-focused approach helped us identify improvements to our ways of working. And her diligent approach to meeting preparation and documenting follow-up means that I am able to hand over many of the actions and conclusions to my successor, as I move on this summer. I would thoroughly recommend Hannah’s facilitation to anyone seeking to rebuild their teams and foster a sense of shared purpose as we emerge from lockdown ways of working.
