Design, facilitate, and produce hybrid meetings that are engaging, productive, and inclusive for ALL participants, however they join

About this event

Hybrid meetings are the next frontier of collaboration. Are you ready?

Designing and leading hybrid meetings - with some participants located physically together and others participating remotely - can feel like a brain-bending challenge.

In this fast-paced, interactive 2.5 hour session, offered on the Miro platform, you’ll experience what a real hybrid meeting might look and feel like and leave with a toolkit of best practices to create energizing connection, equitable participation, and effective outcomes in this new reality.

We’ll explore:

The first 10 minutes: Creating a safe and comfortable shared space

Participation protocols, pre-messaging, and onboarding best practices to ensure that everyone feels welcome and fully involved from the start

Facilitation and engagement strategies

Fun and easy techniques and tricks to facilitate introductions and icebreakers, group go-arounds, visual brainstorming, homogenous breakout groups, gallery walks and carousel activities, plenary discussions and energizers

Room setups and tech configurations for clear communication

Technology and audio/video setups and products to enable effective collaboration, at the right level of complexity and cost for you and your group

Roles, responsibilities and best practices for an effective hybrid facilitation team

Hard-earned advice on managing complexity and making it fun!

Reusable templates and resources for:

- Needs assessment/scoping

- Assigning roles and responsibilities

- Facilitation team backstage guide

- Pre-meeting checklist and messaging

- After-session reflection

- Slides and Miro frames you can copy and use in your own events

This course will help you feel confident - and perhaps even excited - to dive into the complexity of hybrid meetings and make great things happen!

This workshop and accompanying materials are collaboratively created by Oscar Wolters-Duran (Blue Thistle Consulting), Kim Howe (CoCreative Labs), Una McAlinden (Creative Strategy Solutions), and Orla Cronin (Orla Cronin Research) who have trained over 5,000 people in dynamic virtual facilitation and been designing and facilitating hybrid events for over a decade.

Note: We also offer a 6-hour Masterclass that includes all of the above, plus more hands-on experience of complex mixed-location activities and groupings, accessibility and language considerations, asynchronous options, design and application to real events, peer coaching and problem solving, and more.
