Meeting Magic leads strategic meetings for organisations that need to make decisions. They use popular graphic facilitation methods. Success in Europe and USA has led operations to expand to Asia with the Singapore officeCompanies across Asia Pacific

Online PR News – 25-April-2013 – Singapore – Singapore, April 16, 2013 -- The graphic facilitation company, Meeting Magic, has opened an office in Singapore to focus on Asia Pacific multi-nationals and local organisations with a presence in the region. The office extends Meeting Magic’s existing reach from their headquarters in the UK to an active presence in this increasingly influential region at a time when graphic facilitation and recording is gaining ground as a preferred process to ensure business meetings are truly productive.

John Ogier will lead the expansion with proven skills in facilitation of productive strategy, implementation, business review, team development, and many other types of business critical meetings. His valuable corporate background includes work within Siemens, APAC Marketing Director Nokia, SingTel Optus as well as senior roles in APAC, Australia and the UK.

John said, “People think in pictures. Offering the Meeting Magic approach to facilitate business solutions creates an opportunity for clients through Asia to engage a proven process. The use of graphic facilitation improves the conversations that organisations need to have in order to thrive in modern economies. I am excited to work with a brand that is respected globally and that consistently produces great results for highly demanding clients.”

Katherine Woods, founder and managing director of Meeting Magic said, “John’s skills augment and expand the work we have been undertaking globally. His presence in Singapore, serving the entire Asia Pacific region, brings our high-quality, professional facilitation into a market that is critical for the world economy. Working as a neutral co-thinker with organisational leaders he will support our existing clients while offering new clients our globally respected meeting solutions.”

Katherine continues, “We are continually seeking to expand our facilitation reach. With John in Singapore, we are poised to grow our network of facilitators throughout APAC. This is a first step in an effort to bring our facilitation closer to other regions. As a business owner I am encouraged by the high standard of facilitation professionals seeking us out. In many cases, despite holding senior positions in corporate organisations, individuals are seriously looking at the option of working for a small company with high growth prospects. Their motivations are twofold: they are keen to work in an environment where their decisions and actions can make a more immediate impact and they are seeking greater choice and flexibility about when and where they work.”
