Producing Virtual Meetings

Another highly interactive course, this nine-hour online, trainer-facilitated course helps participants leverage technology to bring people together virtually.

The focus is on learning about, and practising, new skills for facilitating effective meetings, engagements, and collaborations, in a virtual setting.

Our participants say…

This will be the best 9 hours you will spend in learning skills to successfully facilitate in a virtual setting. There will be something you can unlearn, relearn, and learn. And have fun!

Fantastic Training- I really recommend 1000 times.

I highly recommend that anyone who facilitates virtual meetings take this course! The facilitators provided fun, interactive, and useful instruction that I will find very valuable for my next virtual event.

Wow, Amazing training that will change how I do things in the future.

I always Enjoy workshops given by Delaney. They are insightful, practical, and fun!

Great session.

This is an excellent workshop for anyone looking to build their virtual facilitation skills. We all find ourselves in this COVID-19 reality where our work has transitioned to virtual. This transition has caused anxiety for many who are new to facilitation or virtual techniques. This workshop will help equip you with practical tools to feel more comfortable in these new roles we find ourselves in. I will be telling all of my colleagues about the workshop to help build our collective capacity. Thank you, Jessica and Brittany!

Very inclusive Felt very connected to each and every participant by the end.

This workshop was excellent! I am recommending this workshop to my colleagues. It’s really practical and the skills you learn you can utilize it.

I’ve taken a lot of Delaney training over the years and I think this course really highlights Jessica’s downright natural talent! So brilliant. So hilarious. So fun!

Excellent courses that provide practical tips and tools to lead engagement meetings.
