What makes working with the Change Exploratory (/Chris) different ?

“For me what makes working with Chris different is that he is so comfortable with chaos and brings a calming influence on the proceedings. His understanding of processes for change and techniques for transformation have been essential to the development of the ‘Training for Leadership, Livelihoods and Local Resilience’ learning programme we are working on together. If you are looking for a coach, facilitator or an agent of change, Chris is your man.”

Davie Philips : Education Manager : Cultivate Living & Learning Centre


“Participating in a World Cafe with Chris helped me to see how this kind of facilitation could bring together diverse people and diverse perspectives into a meaningful whole. Chris went on to support us with an awayday for Board and Staff members focussed on developing the relationships we need to get the work done.  What I valued most was his flexibility to respond and adapt to what was coming from the group; Chris had a non-threatening way of enabling everyone to get into the same space that has made a tremendous difference to us”

Ava Battles : Chief Executive Officer, Carmichael Centre for Voluntary Groups

“Chris is a great listener. He listens to what is not being said as well as what is being said. He allows me time and space to think, to clarify what I really feel about situations and issues am I trying to deal with. He also sees the world in a different way which allows me to get a different perspective on my issues. This is always refreshing” – Ray – formerly Finance Director for a multinational company

“Chris – you just kept asking the questions that touched my soul and unlocked something very special indeed.  I learned a lot from you and your capacity for honing a question to the point where it really did matter”

Conn Mulvenna, Coordinator, Kilcranny House Peace and Reconciliation Centre


Thanks hugely for your enormous contribution to our movement on Saturday. We had struggled for two months to tie the various strands of our thinking together. Saturday was seen as a make or break moment for us – YOU made the day and us with it.

Three days later, I am still flabberghasted at the enormous amount of work that we were able to do and the clarity that emerged. I know everybody in attendance came away thrilled, revived and with a sense of achievement. I spoke specifically to some who have experience of facilitated events through other corporate and community activities. They were very specific in pointing to the source of the day’s achievement: they each said that you were the best facilitator that they have ever seen!”
