Over the last decade Douglas has facilitated team building ‘events’ in more than 20 countries. His services are particularly in demand within the family of United Nations agencies across the world, The European Central Bank and Public Institutions across Europe including the OSCE.

He brings passion, energy and commitment to the groups he works with helping them to engage with each other about the challenges that lie ahead for them in a fun, participatory and entertaining way.  Clients typically ask for retreats (lasting between one and three days) around one of the following three topics:

Team Working/Team Building

Making us a better, more cohesive team.  This has increasingly included more input on working effectively as a remote or ‘virtual’ team i.e. when team members may not be at the same location on a regular basis.


Making better, more dynamic connections across the whole team whether it’s a team of ten or a team of 500.

New Ideas/Innovation

A retreat that’s based around either one or a series of shared problems/opportunities that need to be solved, identified or developed.

In recent years Douglas has facilitated larger-scale team ‘events’ for the following:

  1. The European Central Bank – more than 20 seminars in 10 different countries

  2. UNICEF – Kosovo, Bosnia, Thailand, Albania, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Serbia, Belarus and Montenegro.

  3. Other UN agencies – Botswana, Kosovo, South Africa, Haiti and Germany
