Better process and results


Better process and results by measuring and analyzing behavior change and facilitating planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning

Facili2transform aims to support its clients to have a  better process and improved results by assisting them to measure and analyze behavior change by storytelling and to facilitate the process of planning, monitoring and qualitative evaluation.  The added value is to identify deeper understanding about complex issues, raise awareness on these and stimulate renewed action. For this I apply techniques such, as Storytelling, Participatory video and Planning, Monitoring and qualitative Evaluation models.   I also offer these services on a virtual way, by offering tailor made online facilitation and training processes.

Clients and target groups

Facili2transform aims to enable professionals (monitoring & evaluation experts and officers) and organizations who take a leading role in promoting diversity, equality, fair distribution of resources, nature, biodiversity to obtain tools, that will help them to do more effective monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning which eventually will contribute to better results and social impact.

(Online) Facilitator, trainer, evaluator and filmcoach
With passion I guide processes and projects (especially with behavior change components), where organizations and people with a shared interest learn, meet, strengthen and deepen their relationships, reflect and jointly build strategies. My role is to guide this process through (online) group facilitation, training, evaluation and coaching. In doing so, if there is additional value,  film is used as a learning tool to capture and measure behavior change. Filmmaking is a process that increases awareness, encourages and deepens dialogue and helps to accelerate change. In case film does not provide additional value, I provide research and group facilitation aiming to achieve a better process and better results.

My clients are aiming to promote diversity, equality, ecology and environment and are willing to take a leading role in contributing towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I strongly support ideas of the movements #shifthappens and #savetheplanet.

Remote participatory video documenting stories on refugees in Greece

From January - June, 2021 a team of refugees and members from ASB Greece are going through a remote participatory video intervention. The main aim of the intervention is to listen to the voices of refugees in two refugee settlements in the North of Greece and to better understand their life situation on what is currently important in their lifes. The process is guided remotely by Ralf Otto and Simon Koolwijk.

During the first phase of the project participants have strengthened their video making skills, including research, story development, filming and editing. By the end of February, 2021 each team per settlement finalised a life story of a refugee. Currenly the teams are now in the second phase working on a participatory documentary, which will be completed by the end of June, 2021.

Simon's main skill is to be 'invisible', but still being present in helping groups to harvest results

I know Simon Koolwijk as a learning, facilitation and evaluation expert in Train the Trainer programs and Curriculum Development. He assisted in setting up a Trainers Team for a multiyear program in 6 countries in the Western Balkans. Staff from the NGO in the Netherlands as well as local staff from the NGOs from the 6 countries were trained. I also know Simon Koolwijk as a facilitator in Strategy Processes, in which his in my opinion important main skill is to be ‘invisible’, and yet has the ability to harvest a lot of results and make people at ease and comfortable in the interaction.
