Facilitation & Training


Facilitation is the art and craft of enabling individuals and groups to discuss shared objectives and develop agreed strategies for a common direction.

We facilitate association boards and corporate affairs team meetings to act as a catalyst for groups to solve problems and develop solutions.

We also moderate conferences and events.


The Dober Partners team recommends and works with Brussels’ leading training organisations the European Centre for Public Affairs (ECPA) and the Public Affairs Council (PAC).  Indeed our team member Christophe Lécureuil actually leads the European Centre for Public Affairs, as well as advocacy training at Geneva’s Graduate School.  Mark Dober has lectured at many academic institutions including the Institut des Hautes Études des Communications (IHECS), Maastricht University and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).  Brian Ager and Natalia Kurop are also regular conference speakers.

We provide bespoke training to corporations, associations and NGOs on all aspects of communication, public affairs and association leadership drawing on over 150 years of professional experience of the team, as well as external experts in our network.
