Group Facilitation Master

Learning Communities Network (LCN) is founded by Siobhan Riordan.  She is one of the UK’s leading experts in the Learning Community model, having used it for over 30 years. LCN brings together her exploration of creating deep and meaningful engagement in the online space, through delivering courses, offering counselling and inspiring new conversations about the world we live in. She is a passionate advocate for collaboration and co-creation and the wisdom this can generate in individuals, groups and organisations.

“Having been a ground-breaking educator and facilitator for over thirty years, I believe the old ways of learning and development are redundant in a rapidly changing world.   The hybrid world can leave us isolated, disconnected and stagnant.  I know it doesn’t have to be this way.  I’ve facilitated thousands of learning communities in vocational and academic settings, non-profit and public sector organisations.  The time has come for new ways that focus on connection, collaboration and co-creation, whether online or offline.  That’s why I am building the world’s most powerful collaborative learning programmes for fearless leaders.  Are you ready to be a courageous catalyst of change with me?”
