The person drawing the Contour
Hello! My name is Marta Brzosko and I am a facilitator by trade and a community weaver by heart. I love designing and leading events in which people feel safe, supported, and that they belong.
I believe great events are about:
Just because I organise and lead events doesn't mean I'm the only one creating them! I believe everyone who participates contributes their unique energies and that this is what really creates the event.
O2. Psychological safety
When people feel safe and accepted, this is when they thrive. Supporting everyone to experience psychological safety is one of the foundations of the events and groups I lead.
Structure isn't limiting - it's enabling. When people know what the intention and plan is, they can free up cognitive resources to participate more fully.
What a good event does is that it makes people feel like they are in a place they belong. It doesn't matter if it's a community gathering, birthday party, or workplace training - we all want to experience being a valued member of a group.
Rather than "selling myself" in this short bio, I would prefer to meet you in person. But since you're here now, let me at least make an introduction to what I do. :)
I facilitate meetings, workshops, and events because I believe everyone in a group setting should have a voice. When there is a clear container (aka contour, structure, outline, plan, etc.) for any type of event, there's more feeling of safety. What comes with it is usually engagement, openness, and learning.
I'm on a mission to create spaces where people are empowered to participate and feel safe and nourished doing so.
