Return to The Skilled Facilitator Intensive Workshop


Please fly into Richmond International Airport (RIC) . We suggest you arrive Sunday evening, October 22nd, as the workshop starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, October 23rd.

The workshop ends at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 27th. We recommend your return flight not depart before 7:00 p.m. at the earliest due to distance from the airport, traffic and airport security.
