Facilitation, Conferences, Seminars and Retreats

Live facilitation is by far the most effective environment for team learning. It allows for interaction, lively discussion and participation; all of this adds to the learning process in a very positive way.

Face to face interaction if it is possible is the ultimate experience, the opportunity to spend time together, sharing, learning and growing is definitely worth the effort.

Marina has many years of experience as a corporate facilitator, she has long established relationships with organisations who have continued to use her over many years. Organisations like Hurst Holdings, Ravensdown Fertiliser, Hanmer Thermal Pools and Spa. These companies have enjoyed the consistency of having a facilitator who has learned all about their business and can come in any time and pick up where she last left off.

Marina has acted as MC at conferences and is a regular speaker for organisations wanting a guest speaker for special events. In 2017 Marina was a guest speaker at the Pegasus Health Conference in Christchurch. For 5 years she hosted the NZIM women’s conference as the MC. Marina is a competent front person who can host your conference and manage the day with fluidity and professionalism.

Marina has been a regular conference speaker in Australia over the past 15 years for women’s conferences and retreats. She has spoken on a variety of topics at the request of the retreat organisers but is most requested to speak about understanding each other and building relationships with people.

Pegasus Health invited Marina Shearer to speak at our annual education forum for General Practice Managers and Administrators on the topic of Understanding ourselves and our customers and filling our cup up so we can look after others. We found Marina to be an engaging and entertaining presenter and people are still talking about how much they enjoyed her presentation a year later. Working at the frontline of general practice can be challenging at the best of times; Marina understood this and was able to connect with the audience and gave practical strategies for them to take away. It was a pleasure working with Marina and I would highly recommend her as a speaker for other similar forums. Leigh Aston
