The Professional Development Consortium - Before I Go Solutions

If you:

  • love the idea of helping others be more at ease talking about dying, death and grief
  • like being with those who may be facing their own end
  • are moved to facilitate the transformation of others' attitudes towards life and death
  • maybe had your own experience of someone dying
  • love supporting someone grow through learning new things

AND you want to increase your ability, your credibility, and your confidence in this area, (not to mention standing out from others) then read on...


You might have had to take care of your parents or someone else close to you who has died, and realized the last thing you want is for your own death to be like that.

Or perhaps you’ve been an executor where the person who died was organized, and you understood what a huge blessing that is.

Maybe you just feel comfortable with this subject and want to help others  feel more at ease too.

Whatever your own circumstances, one thing you do realize is that with the onset of coronavirus, and an aging population in many places, more and more people are having to admit to something they have found unpalatable before –

that they themselves are going to die.

Would you like to play your part in making talking about death as easy and effortless as possible?

If you do, then join us in the Before I Go vision...

To have end-of-life plans be as commonplace as birth plans!

Can you imagine that?

It would mean that general conversations would include the word 'death' with no comeback; that death would no longer be a taboo topic; and that we would all be more prepared for when our own end of life arrives.

This Before I Go Academy training in end-of-life planning is part of that vision.  If this idea lights your fire, you want to make a contribution in this way to the world,  and have yourself, your family and others benefit from making good end-of-life plans, then welcome, you are in the right place!

Who am I?

Jane Duncan Rogers, founder of Before I Go Solutions and the B.I.G. Academy.

When my husband Philip died, I never for one moment imagined  I would end up working in this field.

I had been an award winning counselor and coach for over 25 years, having originally trained personally with the famous Louise L. Hay in 1990, working in the personal growth field in many different aspects. I'd  published books and tapes (well before the internet) and was helping small business owners to reach their full potential when Philip died.

Because of the questions he had answered in his last year, I was well prepared in some respects for the admin side of things afterwards. But there was much more we simply did not know about.

Fast forward to 2018, a year during which both my parents died.  They had completed a comprehensive end-of-life plan each, the one that Before I Go Solutions offers, now known as the Before I Go Method®.

This was very different to my husband who had answered some things, but there was a lot more that I simply had to decide about myself.

And that difference was huge – as my parents' executor, I simply had to follow all their thoughtful instructions.

What’s more, it was easy to find everything, and I took great solace from knowing I was carrying out what they wanted (and that they had known I would do this).

My three siblings and I had no arguments at all, over what was a pretty stressful period (they both died unexpectedly within the same week).

I am so incredibly grateful and appreciative for the organisation they had so carefully thought through.

So I know from personal experience how hugely important this preparation work is, and I want to help you to help others do this too!

"This has been the best training I have done, and I have trained in many therapies! The level of support and knowledge has been exemplary. I have confidence I can begin to do this, I know I have much to learn but this is the only training I have completed feeling this. I haven't felt this inspired about anything since I did a cranial training 35 years ago!"

CONTENT OF Licensed Facilitators Programme

Part 1: The Personal - Your Own End-of-Life Plan

Part 1 of this programme is you completing your own plan, and this course is the one which your clients will get access to through you.


Here's what is covered:

Module 1: Lessening the Household Headaches

Module 2: Advance Healthcare Decision Making

Module 3: Looking After the Legals

Module 4: Designing Your Digital Life and Finances

Module 5: Taking Care of the Body

Module 6: Eulogies and Keeping It All Updated

This tried and tested Before I Go Method® has been developed over the last 5 years, working with individuals both on and offline to enable them to complete their end-of-life plans.  You can find the full contents  here, and it is this course you will be taught to facilitate.


All modules are accessed through a dedicated learning platform, Membervault, with a mix of reading matter, video/audio lessons and thought-provoking questions to inspire you.

All modules are available from the start, so you can attend to what you personally need to do asap;  the live coaching calls then help you consolidate, get questions answered, and provide you with an opportunity for accountability - making sure you do what you say you are going to do!

If you already have in place all the aspects of an end of life plan for yourself, as defined by Jane, you MAY be eligible to enter this Programme at Part 2. If you are interested in this, please contact Jane directly here.


Part 2: The Practical - Doing Death Differently


Part 2 is two half days with Jane and Head Facilitator Michael Williams to lead you through the modules needed to be able to communicate wisely and well with others about all aspects of end of life planning.  In these live classes, we cover:


Class 1: Necessary end-of-life conversation skills – listening and talking so your conversations in all areas of this subject are fruitful, knowledgeable, kind and compassionate, in all situations.

Class 2: Understanding bereavement and the impact it has, so you can compassionately and wisely support others at a difficult time.

Class 3: DIY death – the multitude of things you and your family need to know to enable engagement of a funeral director to be lessened, or not used at all.

Class 4: Advance Care Planning – how to make sure all the ducks are in a row for this to contribute to the good death that most people say they want, but don't get.

Including homework, this all leads to you having the foundations in place to move on to Part Three, where you are taught to apply what you have learnt so far in an easily structured and enjoyable way, to offer as a licensed facilitator of the Before I Go Method®

Part 3: The Practicing - Becoming a Licensed End-of-Life Plan Facilitator


Here, we apply all that has been learnt in a way that best meets the needs of your community, be it virtually or in person (even if socially distant).


This takes place with Jane and Head Facilitator Michael Williams, online, over 2 days as before.

  • How to work with groups, online and offline, so you feel confident in running successful events.
  • A proven in-person group format that works to engage, inspire and result in your participants taking action.
  • The Before I Go Method® group outline so you can feel reassured they are learning what they need to know.
  • How to access the Before I Go Method online course, for your clients benefit and a great plus to your own offering.
  • Action-taking skills,  so you and your clients can be sure the 'doing' will happen.

BONUS 1:   Assisted Dying. This module is for those particularly interested in helping participants explore the moral and ethical dilemmas this topic brings.

BONUS 2:  Who Am I and What Is A Body? An understanding of being more than a body is helpful to some, and in this optional module you gain an introduction to this.

Part 4: The Promoting - Marketing Your End-of-Life Planning Service


Here we give you an introduction to how to really get yourself noticed, resulting in a steady stream of interested people.


We cover:

  • How to identify your ideal clients, so they can easily recognise themselves and be attracted to your work
  • How to write/say what your prospective clients really want to hear, so they say yes to you really easily
  • Pricing and money mindset – how to price your work and leave with the tweaks needed so that this drops away as an issue for you

After all 4 parts are completed, and all graduation requirements fulfilled, you will be ready to receive your licence.

This means you will be authorised to:
- practice as a Before I Go Solutions® End of Life Planning Facilitator
- use the documentation as permitted in the training
- have your bio and photo on our Facilitators page on this website

As a licensed facilitator you become part of the Before I Go Solutions community of facilitators. This means you:

  • have monthly mentoring meetings to support you in developing your work
  • access further specific training, tailored to your needs at the time
  • are provided with up to date resources, all designed to help you bring this valuable work to the world

and lots more too!

We use a mixture of partner exercises, study buddy get-togethers, presentations, discussion, videos, and role plays to help you become confident, clear and have the courage to bring this work to those you want to benefit. 



"The Before I Go Facilitator Training has been a chance to enhance my knowledge, skills and confidence with a view to creating and delivering supportive and informative workshops for those too afraid ‘to go there’, or blissfully ignorant of the fact that end of life planning exists. From learning to delivering, this is a humbling experience and ultimately a chance to change lives on so many levels, for the better.  You don’t often get to say that about a course you’ve been on" Trained Facilitator Nuala Lindsay, Scotland

"I loved this training! It has given me the background and comfort to help others develop a solid end-of-life plan. I can now talk from experience because I was able to get my own plan in order with a supportive group of colleagues during the training. Jane has a lovely way of making talking about death something that is normal (as it should be!). I definitely recommend this course!" 

Trained Facilitator Mary Vargas, USA


What you pay:  

The financial investment to become a licensed, accredited End of Life Plan Facilitator is an initial training fee payable over 5 months at £425 per month (approx US$570), with the first payment securing your place on the training.

Alternatively if you wish to pay in full, the initial payment is £1997 (approx US$2900)

Thereafter you belong to the BIGS Facilitators Community, for which there is an ongoing fee of £49.99 per month (approx US$75) and the good news is that we pay your membership fee for the first 3 months after the training ends!

So the cost to you is absolutely free to start with, meaning your continuing licence, the monthly support calls, further learning opportunities, and client access to all courses, plus of course up to date resources is all free for that time!

Outside of this, you should allow time for background reading, and other homework.

Depending on how much of your own end-of-life plan you have already completed, how much reading you do, and whether or not you want to watch the bonus modules, you can expect to spend between 1 - 3 hours per week on each of these modules, outside of the actual training.

"I realized I was missing a very important element in my work helping people through their cancer journey, as I had not paid attention to the end of life process. The course has enabled me to ensure that my clients and their families have a good end of life experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and particularly found the mentoring system extremely useful"

Krista Hyer, President, Cancer Support Group, Mallorca

Frequently asked questions:

"The Before I Go Solutions Facilitator training course is rich and robust. This training empowers me to feel more knowledgeable and confident in the facilitation of family conversations related to end of life wishes. I am grateful to have the Before I Go Solutions in my training arsenal as I help families achieve a peaceful ending through advanced planning" Trained facilitator Maureen Kures, USA

"I love the fact I have completed my own EOL plan – and it has been a pleasure rather than a chore. We all know such endeavours don’t often make it to the top of our ‘things to do’ list. And yet, if not done, they remain a concern somewhere in our busy minds. It is truly liberating to get these plans made and as a consequence live a more fulfilling life. I thoroughly recommend this very informative course, with its role plays, video critiques, and real life stories that support the learning."
