Business and community leaders don’t have time to waste.

Long, inefficient meetings aren’t only a waste of time – they cost money and motivation. It can be difficult for a leader to plan and organize a meeting, create a thoughtful agenda, moderate the meeting, participate freely, make sure everyone else can participate, stay on track, and then record what happened.

 

Fairfield is here to help leaders have great meetings.

Perhaps your organization needs to brainstorm new directions, decide on next steps, review the strategic plan, or discuss a conflict or miscommunication. Maybe you would like to host a retreat, or a networking event.

We are practical, professional, and affordable.

Fairfield has a network of professional facilitators who help businesses and groups meet their goals efficiently and creatively.  Fairfield is at your service for planning meetings, retreats, conferences and strategic planning processes for businesses, organizations, teams, and communities. Fairfield facilitators have extensive experience working with groups of varying sizes, in different contexts, with diverse objectives.

Experience with Conflict and Miscommunication

Fairfield has expertise in developing grievance procedures, resolving costly conflict and miscommunication, and offering a range of professional development training.

Based in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia

FairField’s headquarters are in Harrisonburg, Virginia, in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. The service area covers the central Valley, the rest of Virginia, and Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Washington DC, and North Carolina.   Other locations are also possible, as Bluestone facilitators have offered training in the midwestern states and in Europe.
