    We are also happy to receive questions from your daily facilitation routine in advance, which we will then gladly take into account in the Workshop.

    In this practical workshop we will be at your disposal for 3 days with all our experience. The conference centre offers a lot of space, great catering (organic) and of course there is a "Late Night Drumming" every evening.
