Workshop Facilitators

Tony McLean (B.Soc.Sci & Diploma Supported Employment) has worked with disabled people / their families, the formal service system and local communities for more than twenty years. He undertook his first PATH in 2001. Since that time he has used the PATH processes to support individuals and their families, community organisations and provider organisations create a desirable future and plot their steps to attainment. Tony has seen firsthand the transformational power that this process can achieve, in both individual and corporate settings.

Georgia Barnaby (B. Fine Arts) undertook her first graphic facilitation role in 2006. Utilising her natural artistic talent, Georgia has developed an impressive range and depth of graphic facilitation skill. Her work in this area, is equal to any on the international stage.

Georgia loves the unique opportunity PATH offers her to use her creative skills. She sees the graphic facilitation process as her way of contributing to making a real difference in the world of some of societies most devalued members. Through using her creative skills in a positive and proactive way Georgia has supported many individuals and their families to envisage and set forth on life transforming journeys.
