EquiP facilitators are well-known leaders in their professions, areas of expertise and regional communities because they are people who have a proven record for getting things done.  Every workshop has a facilitator with direct experience of local government – either on the political or administrative side of the fence.  They also bring well-practiced presentation and facilitation skills.
