  • What people are saying about us

    Profound | Passionate | Empower

    The Canning River Eco Education Centre organised the workshop (facilitated by The Fourth Space) to assist those wanting to take their sustainability journey to the next step. The workshop gave the participants skills to listen more carefully with the heart connecting with others to discover more about ourselves. Practical exercises using feelings to convey issues were very profound.

     

    Realising that we all have different thought process based on our life experiences but by acknowledging this and really listening we can work together to make a difference in the world. It was so encouraging that no matter our age or any other difference we can all be heard and contribute. Really looking forward to planning more workshops of this nature for the community to learn and grow.

    Last year, Elaine hosted the MIT U.Lab hub in Perth. The course was an invaluable change management program which gave me a lot of professional and personal insights. Elaine, as a facilitator is very knowledgeable and helpful. She enhanced the experience hugely. She is clearly highly passionate about change making and delivered the course in an awesome style, well done, great four months! Can’t wait to work on some of the prototypes we developed.

    I've been to a few workshops organised by Elaine, which is what attracted me to participate in this one because I knew that it would be a great experience once again. I gained insight into really learning to listen to others while learning so much about myself. The activity leaves you with a positive mindset and it would be incredible if more people could take part in workshops like this one so we can all continue to grow and learn from others. Our world would definitely benefit from it.

    A gently powerful experience, I arrived in a frazzle and left feeling empowered with a sense of clarity.
