Innovative Facilitation

NeverDoneBefore explores the edges of the art and craft of facilitation by challenging assumptions about what makes workshops work. 

Our facilitators take the risk of testing novel concepts and new ideas instead of pushing best practices and polished methods.

NeverDoneBefore is
Different

It is not a lean-back or a done-for-you programme. Everyone learns but nobody teaches. 

While others offer best practices, polished speeches and keynotes, at NDB we don’t talk over slides.  We dare to try, play with boundaries, assumptions and methods and set the trends together. 

With your Greenhouse Pass, you become a gardener as part of a global community.

Risk

A new way of
working

The times when you have to work by yourself on a workshop design or proposal are over. 

At NDB you are no longer alone. The community generously shares – experience, information and knowledge. 

And, at our co-working space we can do this independent of time and space, without making appointments. With a growing global community, you will always meet someone.

Words from our community

Aleksandra Potrykus-Majewska
Co-founder of WeWent

“In the last 9 months, I got to not only learn on a weekly basis from the podcast but also had a choice of 3 to 4 weekly offerings from workshops, open spaces, and discussions and a very active and responsive online community on Circle.

Here I could tap any time into the rich and extremely diverse knowledge and experience of the global community.”

“NeverDoneBefore is a dream come true! From amazing people to brand new tools and exquisite expertise.

Here I feel I can find it all, and if we can’t find it, we create it!

#FeelingBlessed”

Matthew Bassett
Founder of Seshboard

“NeverDoneBefore isn’t just one of the best facilitator communities I’ve come across, but one of my favorite communities period.

There’s just something so special about having a friendly group of new and experienced facilitators coming together in the spirit of exploration, to try out brand new techniques and tools, explore new ideas, and learn from each others’ experiences in a deeply curious, open-minded and accepting way.”
