What I learned about facilitating by doing stand-up comedy

Viv Mcwaters

And I think it’s an important question for those of us inviting others to step into the unknown, whether that be learning something completely new or putting their faith in us as facilitators. Here’s what I learnt about facilitating from doing stand-up about facilitation (how meta is that?):
