How can we create safe and collaborative spaces and purposely lead organisations into the future?

Art of Participatory

March 9 - 12 | 2022

The program will be hosted by a team of local and international practitioners:


Nancy Bragard (France/US)
I accompany individuals and teams of diverse cultures (national and organisational) through systemic transformation. I am a firm believer of the empowerment conferred through participatory methodologies, bringing people together in conversation to initiate change. The soundness of the tacit and often unleveraged collective wisdom thus released brings forth sustainable actions, as they are identified, crafted and coordinated by the actors of the system themselves. I brought the Art of Hosting seminars to France in 2010 and, since then, have stewarded the evolution of the community of practitioners. (Fluent French and English)

Jany Barraut (Switzerland)
I partner with organizations and teams to help them work effectively across cultures and boundaries. Specialized in facilitating organizational change, developing teams and collaborative cultures in multicultural environments, I genuinely enjoy helping people and teams grow and flourish. Supporting multinational companies and international NGOs bringing meaningful change to life globally and regionally, I co-created Gen-H to help organisations and their people unleash energy and live the future they are aspiring to see; I am running as well my own consultancy in Organization Development and Change with a focus on enabling sustained transformations in multicultural contexts. (Fluent English, French and German).

PAMELA ANN BURKHALTER (Switzerland, Hongkong) 

Originally a lawyer, I have been running my business as an executive  coach and facilitator, designing and delivering coaching, leadership  and change programs since 2003. Life has led and continues to lead me  to many places, geo-graphically and metaphorically. My work is very  much about partnering multi-cultural clients on their journeys in 
today’s complex and constant change environments as individuals and  groups, raising consciousness, challenging them to find power and  potential from within. I love holding space with stillness, passion  and play, so that people can show up fully and meaningful conversations and extraordinary results can happen.

Anita Paalvast (Netherlands)

I am a trainer, coach and consultant in change processes. I support managers and teams with increasing their effectiveness in communication, leadership and cooperation. I am passionate about letting people discover and mobilize their inner power via their physical intelligence, a dimension that is rapidly growing in the area of behaviour and culture change in organisations.
I am a practitioner of the Japanese martial art Aikido since 1992 and have a fourth degree black belt. I have worked as an internal risk manager at a multinational bank. Since I founded Aikido@Work in 2009, I combine my experience in the business world with my training and experience on the Aikido mat. (Fluent English, French, Dutch)

Maïwenn Favetto Bon (France)
My career path has led me mostly in the corporate environment, my main activity as a partner at Païda (France) is to accompany change through meaningful conversations and collective intelligence, with teams or individuals. I have seen the workplace evolve greatly in the past 25 years and I am energized by those who stand up to make it a place that serves humanity and the planet. Holding space for them with calm, deepness and play is what I love doing most, in and outside of work! (Fluent French and English).

Fanny Monod-Mitrev (France)
I use drawing, visuals and creativity to invite people to collaborate and think differently. I see graphic facilitation as a potential to unleash the power of action of individuals and collectives by revealing the nuance of meanings and intentions. Active in several personal and professional communities, I daily use the principles of the Art of Hosting. I participated in my first seminar in 2014 and have been collaborating with fellow-practitioners ever since. Trainer and facilitator, I transmit the principles of facilitation and graphic facilitation in all areas. (Fluent French and English)

Sarah Clark Custom
Stephan Krajcik (France, Switzerland)
I am a man who wants to contribute to making this world a better place. Sounds familiar? Naïve? Idealistic? Common? Well, it is all of the above! Beyond the tales and narrative that we all live in and contribute to, there is a simple truth: we are all humans! As such we all have the same needs, desires, fears and the same true nature. Organizations are no different since they are all made of humans. As a coach, and facilitator my mission is to help organizations clear the way to make room for their own true nature to be revealed, and find their righteous place as conscious living organisms. I am a multicultural cosmopolitan, a sculptor, and a Haiku writer. As an artist, I believe that creativity comes before love, and that love is our most wonderful creation. (Fluent in French, English and Italian)

Beate M. Schulze (Switzerland)
I work with people, teams and organizations to discover and tap into hitherto hidden resources and potentials to enhance creativity, collaboration, leadership, and performance. As a coach, I combine strength-based, solution-focused approaches with the sharp analytical eye of the systemic perspective. Trained in sociology, psychology and economics, I started out as a researcher, lecturer and assistant professor, fascinated with the mechanisms at play in the formation of stereotypes and available to dispel or prevent them. Heading the Zurich Empowerment Programme at the University of Zurich, I studied resources and stressors in the workplace and developed interventions to prevent de-motivation and exhaustion. I am convinced that positive relationships at work are key to both employee wellbeing, innovation, and results. (Fluent German, English and French) ch.linkedin.com/in/beatemschulze/
