High Impact Facilitation Intensive

Where
Toronto, Canada

When
May 20, 2020 - May 22, 2020

If you work to advance social change, you likely spend a lot of time in meetings. After all, it is through powerful multi-actor conversations and collaboration that ambitious human rights and climate justice goals are realized.

And yet meetings have a bad reputation. Most people admit to daydreaming, bringing other work to meetings, spending time on social media, and confess to feeling drained.

At Spring we believe that meetings should inspire, tap into the collective intelligence of a group, reshape how a problem is perceived, influence perspectives on how to affect change and uncover new ways of joining forces. High impact meetings generate new levels of strategic alignment, engagement and collective action. And we need more of those meetings; the future depends on it.

Are you an experienced facilitator ready to up your game? If so, we would love to work with you.

Amis Agung Boersma
Coach and Event Facilitator

Amis Agung Boersma is an Integral Master Coach™ and workshop facilitator with over 10 years of experience in the field of International activism and social change. She believes people tend to keep their best features hidden – sometimes even from themselves. Often passions, talents, desires and hopes for the future get buried under the overflowing to-do lists of daily life. As a coach, workshop facilitator and event host, Amis shines a light on the things that really matter to people, helping them connect to others as their truest and fullest selves.

Amis is Dutch with Indonesian roots and a true citizen of the world. She has lived in Amsterdam, Honolulu, Jakarta and Cartagena, and has just moved to the island of Aruba. She holds a Master in Southeast Asian studies and is currently studying her 7th language (Papiamento). Besides languages she devours methods in which we humans can better and more deeply connect, such as Art of Hosting, Theory U and Thinking Environment. Amis loves to sing and dance, and spend time with her loved ones – preferably over a good cappuccino or cocktails.

Proudest achievements

Courageously changing my career to arrive at a place where ‘work’ no longer depletes but regenerates, and my own growth path is to support others in theirs. Realizing that there is nothing to seek for, while realizing the aliveness that comes from seeking.

Proudest achievements

To always be ‘in development’, growing and waking up, and to resist the temptation of staying in my comfort zone. (Okay, I try.) And that I have been able to surround myself with people committed to doing the same.
