Living in a COVID-19 world presents challenges for collaborations and consultations. With imagination, creative design and purposeful facilitation virtual facilitation can offer a way for us all to meet, to talk, to share ideas and to work out ways of working for the future.
We use video conferencing and interactive whiteboards, voting tools, and digital pinboards to support the connection between people and develop the warmth and community that used to involve hours of travel.We have demonstrated that it is possible for virtual events to be effective at creating new collaborative working partnerships between strangers. It just needs a bit of thought, creativity and structure to make the magic happen.
"You have set a new standard for virtual workshops!"
Virtual facilitation offers us a way of connecting without the high carbon cost of face to face events. It also provides a way of people participating who find time away from home more challenging due to caring responsibilities. We are excited about the potential that virtual facilitation offers organisations and are already taking bookings for the autumn 2021 for virtual events.
