Facilitating Great Remote Meetings: Introduction

Do you attend remote video meetings? Do you have ideas and information to share? Do you run training classes?

Talk-over-slides, webinars and ad-hoc meetings are profoundly mismatched with the way humans learn and make decisions. This old-fashioned format is often grim for manager and presenters, and even worse for participants.

In this Live Online Learning session, we will focus on the essential skills to enable you to facilitate great remote meetings.

This two hour workshop is only available online. Please get in touch to discuss private group options.

This two-hour session is currently available at the special introductory price of £165 per person, with equivalent discounted rates for charity and public sector workers. Please note, this is a time-limited offer.

About the Session

Using Zoom, the focus is on how to involve all those participating to ensure equal voice. It will include, as well as video interaction, making full use of interactive chat, breakout rooms, quizzes, thumbs up, using Google Apps alongside and more.

Learn how to move beyond “webinars” and meetings. Learn how to stage online events that:

  • Enable real engagement between people, ideas and information
  • Spark dialogue and promote powerful human connections
  • Make it much more likely that people will act on what they learn

Use the inherent power of social learning and network connections to make your online meetings and events more memorable and more likely to lead to positive change.

What To Expect

This is not a “webinar”! You will be engaging in live conversations with real human beings. You are expected to be heard and seen throughout. As with any remote meeting, each participant in this class brings part of the meeting space with them. We may use shared Google tools at a couple of points, so please make sure you can access these.

The Small Print

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time, to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

The happy Guarantee

We want everyone to go away from our courses feeling as though they have learnt useful, practical skills that they can use straight away when they go back to work.

If you don’t feel that your training has been useful or if you are unhappy in any way, just get in touch with our Customer Services team within 30 days of the course. We will be happy to offer you additional support and training free of charge to help you to gain the skills you need, or if you’d prefer, a full refund.
