Change Process Facilitator
Giulio Ghirardo has been working as consultant/facilitator for the last 13 years mainly in the international development sector. Mainly as advisor for organisations and facilitator in workshops on monitoring and evaluation, Theory of Change and Strategic planning.

He uses cognitive and non-cognitive learning methods which allow the body to reconnect with the mind to experience embodied learning. He is trained in Social Presencing Theatre and Theory U from the Presencing Institute from the MIT in Boston.
