By combining my skills as an applied drama practitioner, a university lecturer, and a kinaesthetic-visual thinker, I provide handmade lo-fi/hi-fi arts-based (graphic) facilitation.
I am insatiably curious, a great listener, quick on my feet, easy to work with, energetic, and fluent in English and Finnish.
I like to work in real-time and on-site, using markers on large sheets of paper. As an alternative, I can work small-scale, taking visual notes as an event participant on paper or an iPad. I also provide drama-based participatory facilitation.
I often co-operate with select service design, strategic foresight, HR-consultants or other facilitators, offering another dimension to their workshops. Or I can work on my own, facilitating or graphically recording talks, meetings, group sessions or whole events.
My strength is my ability to quickly capture information, see connections, support collaboration and communicate a holistic picture.
Understandably, I am not able to show much of my corporate work, but my portfolio contains some examples of both large-scale and small-scale pieces.
