This online Workshop will introduce you to some of the basic requirements and planning you can put in place for more succesful meetings/sessions/workshops with others. If you have a key role in organising, facilitatiing and following up on meetings then this Workshop will focus on some of those steps you should take to ensure that those involved participate and engage fully during the meeting/session/workshop. This will be relevant whether there are only 2 people participating or for much larger gatherings.

We will 'Plan for Real' by looking at the process we need to go through - from meeting set-up, venue location/choice, times & dates, room set-up, Facilitation Approach used, additional resources required, barriers and supports towards participation, feedback, follow-up and more. Whether you have had prior experience of facilitating meetings/sessions/workshops or you would like to become more involved then this Basic Introduction will support you in developing your approach, practice and experience. If you want to cultivate a more inclusive, participatory and effective culture for working with groups then getting the Basics right is essential.

Participating in this event requires some criteria are met by you, which includes access to a laptop/PC/tablet (mobile phones will not be suitable), Zoom video software and a space from which you can participate without being disturbed.
