Team Away Days

I love to work with teams who are focussed on connection and forward thinking. The areas I focus on on team away days (in person or virtual) include:


  • Establishing team valuesTeam Away Day
  • Creating a mission statement
  • Setting a clear vision for 2022
  • Goal setting and action planning
  • Deepening relationships and getting to know one another
  • Essential reflection on important issues and events
  • Arriving at a consensus on a particular topic or issue

Shakti Women’s Aid would highly recommend Emer for any team-building session or other staff day scenario. She made sure that our large group, with our many diverse opinions and backgrounds and skills, all felt that they were heard and valued. The exercises she gave our groups seemed unusual; they turned out to be fun, collaborative, and to highlight our strengths.

Emer was suggested as a facilitator by a staff member who had been impressed with her work. We needed to bring together a number of new board members with our staff team to do a strategic look forward. There was real focus on what we needed to achieve but the day itself didn’t drag and was kept ‘strategic’. I would confidently recommend Emer to any organisation who wished to look at their core purpose or simply wanted to refresh their vision.

Hi Emer, Thank you so much for the great day we had yesterday. It was amazing that people who had previously spent so little time together could achieve such a lot and create a shared vision in such a short time. I think you’re a terrific facilitator and I’m very glad indeed that you were there to guide us to such positive outcomes.
