The Program:

When Covid brought all in-person events to a screeching halt, events became synonymous with virtual events. You now have Zoom basics down. The problem is that basic skills are not enough to stand out as a top-notch virtual presenter.

Your message may not be getting across if you are not providing a thoughtful participant experience design that allows everyone to engage. All too often, traditional event design, particularly in a virtual setting, benefits the loudest, most confident, and most experienced participants.

You don’t need a high-tech recording studio with a green screen, hair light (that’s a real thing), and fancy software to level up your Zoom game. Focus on improving your technique rather than your technology.

This webcast will help you design transformative, inclusive, and engaging online experiences.

Robbie will share how to use the latest features and online facilitation techniques to structure your events, so everyone feels welcomed instead of merely invited. Using purpose-first design creates sessions that move participants from inspiration to action.

No more death-by-PowerPoint. No more Zoom fatigue.

If virtual programming is part of your business model, you cannot afford to use skills and settings stuck in 2020.

You will learn how to:

  • incorporate purpose-first design to create sessions with specific outcomes in mind
  • enhance virtual presentations by utilizing improved online facilitation techniques
  • create opportunities for ALL voices to be heard, not just the most privileged or experienced
  • design breakout rooms that foster intentional engagement
  • apply these online facilitation and event design concepts to any virtual platform
