Natalie Zend

About: 

IAF Certified Professional Facilitator
Certified Training and Development Practitioner

I want to live in a world where people come together to listen for possibility, co-creating the new life-serving society that wants to emerge. An international workshop facilitator, I facilitate strategic conversations and multi-stakeholder collaborations toward a better furture; train professionals in how to create high-impact, rights-based programs for children; and help inspire leaders to find the creativity and courage to respond to the current global crisis. I also work one-on-one with change makers to help them find clarity with big decisions, tough choices, crossroads and new beginnings. Depending on the needs of the moment, I partner with trusted facilitator and trainer colleagues. I often work in inter-cultural contexts, whether in my home base of Toronto or abroad in the US, Latin America, Africa, or Asia.
