"I've gotten such great results from Marli's facilitation training that I've officially brought her on as my coach to help me sharpen my facilitation skills. I want to provide an optimal experience for the members of my Visionary Business Builders cohort so I'm investing with the best.

I'm a firm believer in having 'A-Players' help me become better at what I love to do and I've seen Marli demonstrate facilitation with such ease and grace that I found myself saying "I want to do that!" So it's with a lot of excitement and enthusiasm and even a little bit of anxiousness that I'm having Marli Williams coach & support me with my upcoming Council cohort.

In our first meeting I already nailed down the new format, framework and objective for making my 'Council Circles' powerful and engaging for all members. So much goodness from just our first meeting!

Can't wait to share more amazing updates as our work together unfolds. Thank you, Marli!"

“I am a full time coach who happens to love teaching and facilitating. As someone who spends her days serving others it was only a matter of time before I added facilitation to my work. I’ve spent close to a decade mastering coaching, facilitating was totally foreign to me. While I am a natural teacher and truly love it, there were gaps I wasn’t aware of. 

In a single conversation with Marli she was able to see my whole vision, understand the flow of my program, and help fill in gaps I didn’t even know were there. She came up with a handful of simple things, for example using core groups within the larger trainer for safety and connection, and playful transitions that match the energy of the teachings. She understands that the context in which someone learns determines how the content is actually received. 

If you are a coach who speaks, teaches, or facilitates then I highly recommend working with her. Your students will thank you!”

“Marli is incredible at facilitating transformational experiences, as well as teaching others how to lead their own. In a short time working with Marli, she has shown me how to bring my background of outdoor education and facilitation into my new role as coach, speaker, and trainer. 

As I prepare presentations or workshops, I have changed my focus from designing slides with information, to planning interactive activities to engage the audience. I also create opportunities for participants to connect and share how they plan to implement what they have learned, increasing the likelihood of lasting transformation."

- Betsy Davidson
The Changemaker Mentor

“I am so grateful for Marli's support in upping my facilitation game. As a teacher and Spiritual Mentor, I hold space for a lot of people. It's one thing to learn how to hold a group container out of necessity and natural presence, and another thing entirely to create a very purposeful experience that achieves a powerful, transformational result.

Marli immediately spotted some areas in my retreats that could use some support! She helped me craft a few powerful exercises to create rapport and great dynamics within my group. I am delighted to report that this last retreat went better than ever. My students walked away glowing, inspired and connected as a cohort, and I feel empowered to offer the kind of live event that will blow people away."

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the admissions process work?
I review applications as they come in. If you are a great fit for this training, I will contact you to schedule a 15min. introductory call. Once your application is approved, you will have 3 days to complete registration and payment to reserve your space. If you do not complete your registration within 3 days your spot will be given to the next qualified applicant. 
Q: What happens between now and the event?
Once you complete your registration you will immediately be added to the EPIC Facilitator™ Community to begin connecting with other leaders in the field. Enjoy this time to catch up on Master Classes and review my existing resources. Keep an eye on your email for a Welcome Packet with additional information and preparation materials.
Q: Is there a payment plan?
The investment in this training is either:
 - $1750 paid in full upon acceptance into the retreat
 - OR two payments of $900, 1st payment due upon acceptance and 2nd payment due by April 1st
Q: What happens if I can no longer attend?
All payments are non-refundable but may be transferred to any future work or training with me within 6 months (must be used by October 1st 2019).
Q: What's included in the fee?
The $7,500 investment includes your lodging for 6 nights, meals, a group social activity in the city, and five full work days focused on developing content, establishing systems, and implementing your business model. This is not a retreat or conference. You will be working to achieve results and you will have the help to get it done quickly and effectively.

Q: What happens between now and the event?
Once we receive your payment, we will immediately begin working and have two 60-minute calls in the 2 weeks leading up to the event to do pre-work so that we can hit the ground running when you arrive. This will allow us to make the most of your time in New York and ensure the completion of your deliverables by the end of the week. 
Q: How much will it cost?
The investment is $7,500. You will make a $2,500 “I’m serious” non-refundable deposit now that will be applied against the $7,500 to reserve your spot and room. You will be staying at my home here in New York in one of five private bedrooms. You can also pay $6,500 in full before the May 1st deadline to save $1,000.

Q: How do I pay?
You can use the links above to make your deposit or payment in full. 

If you choose to make a deposit today, your next payment will be at the halfway mark between April 15th and today. And then your final payment will be on April 15th.

We could also arrange for a wire transfer if you would prefer that instead.

Q: When do I arrive to and depart from the retreat?
Please arrive at Heaven & Earth Retreat Center between 4-5pm on Thursday, April 18th. We will wrap up and leave by noon on Sunday, April 21st 7th. 

If you are flying into Portland, please arrange your flight to arrive in PDX no later than 2pm on Thursday April 18th and departing no earlier than 3pm on Sunday, April 21st
Q: What happens after the retreat?
After the 4 day retreat, you will have additional support to make sure that you succeed. You will receive an integration coaching call with Marli.
