Facilitation of Asian regional climate workshop
Scientell facilitated a 2-day workshop on regional climate projections for an Asian Development Bank project managed by CSIRO in May 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand.
65 participants from nine countries, representing government departments, research organisations, and agriculture, water, infrastructure, and risk disaster management sectors.
CSIRO and the Asian Development Bank engaged Scientell to facilitate the high-profile international workshop. This involved working with the CSIRO and ADB teams to discuss the overall workshop activities and develop a detailed plan for the discussion sessions, and contribute to a post-workshop report on its achievements. During the workshop, Simon Torok introduced keynote speakers, maintained a strict schedule, encouraged and helped all participants contribute, guided break-out sessions, and ensured workshop aims were achieved.
Prior to the workshop, Scientell worked with Bloom Communication and the project team to conduct a survey of all participants to help ensure that the workshop met expectations and was of maximum benefit to all, and to collect baseline information for the workshop evaluation.
