Event Description

You are invited to join us for the learning and sharing event of the year!

Here are just a few great reasons to be there... you can:

  • join an extraordinary group of people with a shared interest in making things work better in organisations
  • meet dozens of world-class practitioners and thought-leaders in the field
  • choose from an excellent selection of presentations, workshops, discussions, case studies, live coachings, and more... with space for reflection and discussion between sessions
  • immerse yourself in the outstanding environment of a historic university college and fascinating city
  • get a taste of life as an Oxford student in a room in the college itself, at the heart of the action (as long as you register early enough)
  • enjoy top quality meals in the magnificent dining hall
  • make the most of the many social events and entertainment on offer, including the famous SOL cabaret, tours, pub visits, punting on the river and more
  • be reinvigorated, inspired and stretched, taking away many new ideas and new friends from this generous community.

On the evening of Wednesday 5 September we will enjoy our usual pre-conference social gathering, and the programme will start on Thursday morning, 6 September.

We are currently developing an exciting programme...  we are in discussion with all contributors and we'll be offering a great mix of plenaries and workshop sessions on our theme of 'Sharing Steps to Success'. We'll bring you more news on this in June.

"WOW!!"  SOL2012 is sold out!  That's just short of 200 places!
A big thank you to all those who've registered.

Anyone who tried to book this past weekend will have seen a notice that booking is temporarily suspended. We are reviewing our current capacity and will let you know once booking has been re-opened. Many thanks!

We are delighted that bookings are coming in fast for the SOL2012 Experience and it is wonderful to see that old friends and new, from all around the world, will be coming together to create magic in Oxford. Brilliant! I am very excited :-)

Just to let you know that with more than 180 people on the SOL2012 Priority List, we are going to close the list to new registrants on December 21st. So, please, if you haven’t already done so, and especially if you have submitted a workshop proposal, make sure you are on the list. Please go to

By joining the list you will be given an opportunity to register for SOL2012 more than a week in advance of everyone else.

We’re also delighted to announce that we have received more than 50 proposals for contributions to the conference.  These range from exciting plenary ideas to short discussion sessions. 

What we can say confidently at this stage is that there will be a rich and varied programme, with case studies, research findings and interviews with chief executives who are applying SF in their organisations.  We’ll probably also be announcing a pre-conference day for anyone wanting an introduction to the main SF principles and tools; and a post-conference day of a coaching master class, with live demonstrations and discussions from a panel of international experts.

The conference will feature a generous helping of Open Space as well as a themed, pre-announced programme which will cover topics including leadership, evaluation and working with large groups; introducing SF to organisations through coaching and changing to a coaching culture; introducing SF into healthcare and education organisations; personal development; links with constellation work and many, many more.

We will continue to work on developing the programme, and there’ll be more news in the New Year, including our responses to those who have submitted ideas.

With (excited) warm wishes from the SOL2012 Team!

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
