- Keeping people engaged in virtual meetings is a lot harder than in person!
- It may be a long wait before we can safely hold in-person gatherings again.
Thankfully, I’ve got you covered!
Whether you need a virtual retreat, or a bespoke training to get your managers up to speed on how to lead non-boring virtual meetings, I can help.
Virtual Session Design & Facilitation
Don’t want to wait until “Shelter In Place” is over to hold the retreat/offsite you’ve been planning? You don’t have to!
The interactive activities I use to facilitate virtual sessions are fun and engaging. It really is the next best thing to being there.
If I could change anything, I’d be tempted to say “make it longer – I want more!” The two hours FLEW by!
This was the first Zoom meeting that didn’t leave me feeling drained (despite being an awfully extroverted activity for an introvert).
Bespoke Virtual Meeting Facilitation Training
I’ve been leading virtual gatherings of all kinds since 2010. In May 2020 I started offering Non-Boring Virtual Meetings workshops, bringing the tools I’ve learned from my training in applied improvisation and other play-based methods, to teach folks how to lead virtual meetings/classes/gatherings that are engaging, interactive, and fun!
I’d be happy to work with you to customize a bespoke Non-Boring Virtual Meetings training for your team or company.
“Melissa provided an engaging workshop with tangible exercises that we experienced—and some tips to use functions within Zoom more dynamically—which I’ll be bringing into my own sessions! I especially loved learning how to make physical interaction more possible. Highly recommended!”
“My biggest takeaway from Non-Boring Virtual Meetings was the creative ways to engage team members. I’ll be recommending this workshop to friends and colleagues, because it’s really easy to disengage from virtual meetings and do other things. Your ideas give a reason to stay tuned.”
“Having designed and facilitated meetings for many years I’ve learned the critical importance of managing the energy of any gathering. And it is this aspect I struggle with most as events move on line. That’s why the aspect I liked best about Non-Boring Virtual Meetings was the energy and sense of play/exploration. To succeed in this new world we all need to adopt a “beginners mind” and Melissa makes that a reality by providing a space of experimentation and discovery that is essential if we want to create genuinely engaging and energizing on line experiences”
“It was a game-changer and I really enjoyed it! Thank you!”
