Planning §Away Days

Whether you are holding a team building away day or a business development planning day it is useful to engage and external facilitator.

Planning Days

As part of your organisational planning and development you may want to get teams, staff, Trustees, volunteers, service users etc. involved in thinking about the vision and direction of your organisation and setting the priorities for the future.


By engaging a facilitator you demonstrate openness and transparency in developing strategy and business planning.


EPITOME will work with you to:

  • Carry out a force field analysis
  • Scenario planning
  • Carry out Delphi, SWOT or PEST analysis
  • Organise and facilitate the planning day
  • ​Write up final report

Away Days

We will work with you to identify what you want from your away day.  Whether that is team building out of the office, an opportunity to engage in a community activity, or a day addressing a specific issue.  


Away days are a dynamic, effective means to build relationships and improve performance of individuals and teams.


We will work with you to identify your reasons for holding the away day and what challenges you feel are standing in the way of moving forward.


A typical Away Day may look like this:

  • Welcome and introductions
  • ​Setting the outline of the day, identifying the objectives
  • Getting to know you exercise, fun and interactive, to get delegates talking
  • Coffee Break (people often continue the getting to know you session during coffee)
