Facilitation

Placewise design and run workshops to build social networks and research expertise

Central coreWe design and run workshops to build social networks and research expertise.

Placewise Ltd specialise in facilitating interdisciplinary workshops for academic institutions.

We map existing or emerging social networks between people with a shared research interest and evaluate how these networks change over time – this is very effective for team-building.

We use online surveys and graphical tools to identify social networks and key network members. People who ‘bridge’ or ‘bond’ social networks help build social capital because they contribute to stronger and more complex social networks.

All our workshops are bespoke and designed to fulfil the aims of the client organisation. We are particularly careful to promote high levels of participation and consequently, high levels of ‘buy-in’ to projects. Workshops typically last between 1-4 days.
