A new way of thinking

Catalyst is a new approach to consulting. It is a highly interactive conference style event designed for 20-60 leaders held in a personalised, out-of-office environment. It instantly creates real stakeholder buy-in and alignment by breaking down cultural and hierarchical barriers. We work closely with you to design the Catalyst event so we can develop the best solution together. This approach condenses months of work and meetings into only a few days.

Iterate on objectives and event design

Collect and analyse data and inputs

Inputs into the Catalyst will be a consolidated view of the key findings from KO, covering:

  • Strategy
  • Design thinking
  • Current initiatives
  • Best practice
  • Ways of working

 

Build and execute the Catalyst

We facilitate an alignment and discussion on your core strategy key areas of concern.

We will then focus on your existing initiatives, ways of working and gaps to achieving your goals.

Catalyst will support transfer of knowledge and training to key teams so they feel they have a voice, come to conclusions that can be executed and provide opinions that matter.

 

Construct and deliver the outputs

The Catalyst will facilitate a decision making and action orientated plan that will inform key deliverables.

Co-create insights

We are trained in design-thinking and will co-create insights interjected with exercises to inspire, inform and energise.

 

External perspectives

PwC facilitators will be prepared and informed of your objectives and challenges, ready to facilitate open discussions with an external perspective.

 

Control the flow

Facilitators will lead discussions, modules, and activities according to an agenda, but will adapt the flow according to vibe of the room.

 

Set the pace

Keeping an eye on the time, facilitators will make sure time does not run away from the agenda, and participants will go through each activity and exercise as designed.

 

Keep the energy up                         

Reading the vibe of the room, facilitators will adapt within the agenda to bring energy up when it’s dwindling, and focus energy towards objectives and outputs when it is threatening to run away on a tangent.

 

Stay engaged throughout

Facilitators will ask the right questions and push the right buttons to keep participants focused and engaged on key topics and issues.

 

Ensure outputs

Through synthesis and summary sessions, facilitators will keep participants focused on achieving the objectives to ensure outputs are created by the end of the day.
