We'll help you bring people together for worthwhile, meaningful conversations using digital platforms and tools.

As a society, we have 11 million meetings a day. Of these meetings, around half are unproductive, costing $37bn a year.

Meetings are frequently ruined by a lack of planning, focus, engagement, healthy debate and follow-up.

Facilitation is the art of productive dialog and, with these problems in mind, has never been more important.

As experienced facilitators, we've seen what does and doesn't work. 

At its core, effective facilitation seeks to...

  1. Harness the collective wisdom in the room
  2. Surface conflicting views
  3. Create a space for idea generation
  4. Foster collective problem-solving

As is becoming familiar to everyone, replacing in-person gatherings with distributed ones is not a simple matter.

There are a collection of tools and approaches that all meeting conveners, managers and facilitators now need to understand and have at their fingertips.

In this virtual-focused slice of our main facilitation training, we'll share some of our best virtual-friendly and virtual-only activities that enable real connection at a distance.

In this workshop, we'll explore...

  • Preparing the digital space
  • Check-ins and check-outs / warmups and icebreakers
  • Observing and responding to group dynamics
  • Fostering healthy interaction and building connections
  • Capturing and harvesting - virtual visual facilitation tricks
  • Managing energy
  • Closing sessions with maximum impact
  • Specific tooling to help with virtual gatherings
  • Practicing & playing with your facilitation skills

I attended your training on how to turn useless meetings into effective collaboration and LOVED it! Your training was hands down one of the most valuable workshops I have attended to date.
