About this Event

Please join the Portland State Business Accelerator and Elsa Henderson, facilitator, coach, and educator.

Communication can be difficult depending on the topic or context. We’ve all been there: a conversation you are putting off or would rather not have. A discussion you want to have, but don’t know how to broach. In this virtual lunch and learn, Elsa will introduce a few skills to approach such conversations with greater ease. She will provide a conceptual framework and an opportunity to practice.

This session is for anyone who wants to enhance their communication!


Elsa moves between the roles of facilitator, coach, and educator. She is committed to working with individuals and groups to actualize their potential. Elsa has a master’s in conflict facilitation and a background in depth psychology and anthropology. For the past 8 years, she has taught and led cross-cultural group’s facilitation and leadership development. Based in Portland, Oregon, Elsa works internationally. She is faculty at the Metavision Institute, a facilitator at the Converge Network, and Becauz. In her free time, she enjoys trail running, exploring new places, and cooking with friends.
