Bill is a great facilitator and has an outstanding process. It is an exciting, fun, and extremely effective way for problem-solving teams to work. It has rewarded me richly.

Former Director

Expert facilitation is one of the most leveraged ways to create breakthrough solutions and very large economic gains.

Ron Richards, President

Cavas’s techniques constituted an important competitive differentiator, in the founding and growth of our company — from $500,000 in revenue with 15 consultants to $540,000,000 and 1,800 professionals over a period of 21 years, a compound annual growth rate of 39%...

Your facilitator makes those imprinting first decisions with you. He’s then the catalyst who causes your people to come up with a wealth of ideas and transform them into breakthroughs that are practical and actionable.

So why settle for anyone less than the best in the world?

After all, your biggest cost is not the facilitator’s fee, nor even the time of your people. Indeed, the biggest cost is opportunity cost—to not find a solution and be dominated by a competitor, or fail to find the breakthrough that could have multiplied your profits, your growth, and your immunity to competition.

Two world-class facilitators have the best skills and track record: Bill Cope and Cavas Gobhai.

Both were principals at Synectics, a fountainhead of methods to develop new ideas with giant economic gains. And they’ve spent the last 35 years expanding those methods.

They both lead their sessions personally, not delegating to juniors. Many times they’ve led sessions together. And out of mutual regard, they sometimes recommend each other to clients.
