Mr Swart prepared thoroughly, successfully navigated a very full agenda and delivered a meaningful report within a day after the workshop. Based on the experience of this engagement, the knowledge and insight demonstrated, efficiency and delivery performance, I would gladly make use of Group Dynamics Facilitators in future and would highly recommend their services.

Johan Swart and Group Dynamics have been an integral part of my career of many years in business management. Due to the great guidance, quick grasp and strong business acumen of Johan personally, it was possible to build business plans with full participation of management teams of up to 20 people. I can, openly state, that the skillful guidance through the process, the visible progress in real time and the wonderfully creative manner, in which the "group brain" is employed, makes this process, vital, in my view, to sort out difficult, multi-disciplinary challenges in business.
Group Dynamics Facilitators have developed unique approach and ability for facilitation of company strategic planning workshop and business plan implementation method. They assisted us with the development of our corporate strategic plan and not only the strategic plan, but also, a business plan with clear details on how to implement our corporate strategy and an analysis of activities , resources necessary for successful implementation of the company strategic plan. Group Dynamic Facilitators are highly recommended for facilitation of corporate strategic planning and business plan implementation.

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) commissioned Group Dynamics Facilitators to facilitate two strategic planning sessions with the board and senior management of the organisation for the 2018/19 strategic cycle. The project was carried out professionally by Facilitator Johan Swart, and delivered at the agreed time. During the project, Johan Swart interacted with management in various divisions with ease; and handled all challenges with the utmost diligence. We hope that you will experience the same level of satisfaction enjoyed by us during our interaction with Group Dynamics Facilitators.

What is exceptional about your service is the unique style of facilitation and the production of a real time workshop report immediately after the session. The contributions you made to the DCoG over the two-day session is indeed very valuable and worthy to be followed by others.

There are a number of outstanding attributes of Mr Swart’s engagement as strategic facilitator, which includes (i) gaining the trust of the group he is working with, (ii) being frank and honest with the necessary empathy towards group members, (iii) keeping all interested in the proceedings, (iv) ability to keep participants focussed and (v) handing over the report of the strategic session on the day that the session concludes. These attributes also contributed significantly during our strategic session with our Board of Directors who also bought into the strategy. | have no hesitation to recommend Mr Swart as facilitator since the outputs generated by him provide absolute value for money.

Johan facilitated our 5-year strategic sessions earlier this year. The Diagknows system was used and resulted in rapid prioritisation of strategic themes in workshops that were very productive and good value for money. Workshop outputs were documented in a report that was available immediately after the workshop. We are very pleased with the workshop outputs. Johan comes highly recommended as a facilitator.
Senior Manager, SASRIA
Johan Swart and his assistant, Christine Fourie, demonstrated an exemplary service that clearly distinguish them as the benchmark in the field of workshop facilitation. They totally exceeded our expectations and we were literary "blown-off by their level of expertise and professionalism. The deliverables were met in the most unique, inclusive, participatory and productive way. What was so fascinating was that the workshop outputs and the final Strategic Plan and Risk Register documents were delivered directly at the end of the workshop. Thembalethu Development NPC recommends this facilitator team without hesitation to anyone wanting to co-create plans in a workshop.
