As facilitators we know the demands of always being ‘on’ in front of a group. We also know that our ability to manage our own energy, while also tuning into the needs of group, allows us to provide the best experience for our participants. 

With more than 1400 days of in-class and online facilitation experience spanning more than 25 years, Drew Bird, author of The Leader’s Guide to Emotional Intelligence, and an EQ Master Trainer, will share his experience of how emotional intelligence can make you a better facilitator both inside and outside of the room. 

Using real-world examples as a basis, Drew will explore key areas of facilitation that both new and experienced practitioners alike can apply to their practice right away.


Drew Bird, founder of The EQ Development Group, and author of the Leader's Guide To Emotional Intelligence, supports coaches, consultants, and hr/talent management professionals to integrate emotional intelligence practices, tools, and techniques into their daily work.

In addition to his work speaking and presenting, Drew works directly with select clients from both the private and public sectors to develop effective leadership talent management practices, programs and processes. He also supports leaders from a range of organizations, and at all organizational levels, coaching and mentoring on day-to-day business issues and long-term strategic challenges. His engaging style and depth of subject matter knowledge makes him a sought after speaker, presenter, and facilitator, on a wide range of leadership related topics.

When not pursuing his passion for organizational and individual improvement, Drew is an avid sailor, cyclist, surfer, and movie hound. His love of travel has taken him all over the world, including Canada, the US, Central America, Australia, Africa, and Europe.
