Event description
In this lively workshop, community engagement specialist Becky Hirst will teach to you facilitate online video conversations... like a pro!

About this Event

Are you needing to facilitate group conversations via video conferencing, but are worried about - 

  • How you'll 'read the room' given that everyone is behind a screen?
  • How you'll create and maintain positive group energy? 
  • How you'll manage to get enough input to be able to solve problems or make decisions?
  • What you'll do if technology fails?

You aren't alone!

I’m Becky Hirst and I’m a community engagement specialist with over 22 years experience of involving people, groups and communities in working together to solve problems and make decisions.

A large amount of this work has been about facilitating meaningful conversations.

But of course, wherever you are in the world, 2020 has thrown quite the curve ball at us all for how these conversations can occur.

Many very important conversations had to move online, and specifically to video conferencing.

But this raised so much anxiety for those of us who had to facilitate those conversations, and still achieve good outcomes!

Many facilitators worry about which tools to use, how they’ll read the room given that now everyone is on a screen. They worry about how they’ll maintain the energy of the conversation or ensure that everyone on that video call feels heard. Many worry about their internet connection and what they’ll do if technology fails!

That’s where I enter, stage left!

"I liked how Becky demonstrated what she was teaching through the content she presented. So many good tips!" Workshop Participant, September 2020

If you want to learn to facilitate good online conversations for positive group outcomes, I invite you to join me for one of my 2-hour live virtual workshops where I’ll help you with all of these things.

I want to share everything I have learnt during 2020 as a professional facilitator who has had to adapt to the online world.

I want to share with you what I know about how to read the online room, how to maintain energy, how to achieve good outcomes and even how to plan for things going wrong.

I’ll share with you my favourite tools for making your online video conferencing SO much more effective, and plenty of tips and tricks for owning that online space!

There's no doubt that meaningful face-to-face group conversations will return, and you may be planning to return to facilitating them. However, this is a fabulous moment-in-time to add some extra tools to your facilitation and community engagement toolbox!

See you there! 

"This has given me more confidence that we can capture the same level of detailed input through online channels that we do during face-to-face workshops" Workshop Participant, September 2020
