More than just a facilitator, here are some fun facts:
Boyan’s Facilitator Story:
I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and moved to Montreal, Canada when I was 4 years old. Growing up, I played every sport I could, from soccer, basketball, skiing and even ping pong. I also had a passion for music, playing the viola and performing from a young age. In high school, I was onstage as part of the musical theatre group.
I started to pursue a career in facilitation after working in banquets at a hotel and seeing the flip charts, videos, and great facilitation in action. After completing my Bachelor’s in business administration from Concordia, I started learning about the craft through training programs from Dale Carnegie, Toastmasters, and UQAM.
My natural facilitator strength is as a Confidant. I am known to be a deep listener, giving my participants space to reflect. When I ask a question, I’m genuinely curious and really want to know the answer.
My second facilitator strength is as a Superhero. I believe in the capacity of others to grow and become a better version of themselves. In my sessions, you can find me tactfully challenging participants to stretch beyond their comfort zone, because that’s where real growth happens.
