Duration: 9:00am - 4:00pm

Day of week: Thursday

Level: Beginner

Key Takeaways

  • How to Make People Care About Your Online Meeting

  • How To Become a Confident Online Facilitator
  • How to Deal With the Problems That Online Meetings Throw At You
  • How to Make Hybrid Meetings Less Horrible

Prerequisites

No preparation is needed.

Remote meetings don’t have to suck. You don't have to be baffled or bored. You don't have to struggle through talk-over-powerpoint. You really can connect with real human beings remotely, using the technology that's available to you.

After this workshop, you will ROCK at engaging groups of distant participants in rich, multi-layered discussions. You'll look professional before, during and after the event - and even when things go wrong. Whisper it... your online meetings might even be fun.

Participants will be invited to join a 90-minute online "bonus" class in the weeks after the in-person session, to put what they've learned into real-life action.
