Consulting

I enjoy working with people in groups who have goals, interests or problems that they seek to address together. I also enjoy working one-on-one with individuals who are tackling an educational challenge they care deeply about.

I am available to work as a facilitator1, trainer and consultant2 . I have extensive experience in the following areas:

  • Workshop design and facilitation
  • Instructional skills training
  • Assisting individuals develop strong presentation skills
  • Facilitating meetings and discussions in ways that move processes forward
  • Leading focus groups
  • Developing and implementing educational programs

I am keen to be involved with people who seek to make a positive difference. Though my work to date has focussed on higher education, I am curious to expand and experience other contexts.

Please contact me at isabeauiqbal@gmail.com if you have any ideas for working together!  I look forward to hearing from you.

Words matter!

  1. A facilitator is one who “contributes structure and process to interactions so groups are able to function effectively and make high-quality decisions.” (Bens, 2012).
  2. Block (2011) defines a consultant as “a person in a position to have some influence over an individual, a group, or organization but has no direct power to make changes or implement programs.” (p.2).
