As an accredited facilitator of the Thinking Environment, Marike is passionate about creating spaces in which participants can think for themselves with rigour and imagination.

For more than a decade, Marike has facilitated extensively in South Africa, and around the world in countries as diverse as Georgia, Morocco and Zanzibar.  She enjoys utilising innovative and modern methodologies in workshops, seminars and conferences.

Marike has extensive experience working with political parties, think tanks, NGOs, public representatives and corporate clients.

Marike facilitated a workshop with our management team. Marike’s facilitation style is engaging, open and gives everyone the opportunity to be part of the conversation. One is at once at ease and challenged on an individual level in equal measure. Marike took the time to understand the team dynamic and challenges, and shaped her material in order to be most effective. She shared practical tools that could be applied in our workplace and each person left feeling part of and accountable for the overall solution. I would definitely recommend Marike as a facilitator.
