|March 31||10:30am EST / 2:30pm UTC+0||Online Facilitation: Captivating Your Remote Teams and Meetings||Community Knowledge Share||RSVP Required Capped at 25 seats||Online meetings can be engaging, productive, and fun! And we don't mean the type of fun where a cat falls onto your keyboard, in the middle of a presentation. Without being face-to-face or meeting IRL, it can be hard to benefit from all the wisdom of a group or gauge when someone is not paying attention. We’ll share tips and tricks about designing and facilitating online meetings, when to use which online tools, and shifting mindsets to adapt to an increasingly remote work.
The speaker will be Trinh, the IFF's Head of Safety & Technology. Besides the digi and orgsec projects she oversees at the IFF, Trinh is a long-time trainer and facilitator, with nearly 15 years experience with remote teams and online campaigning. She is a trainer on movement building, building sustainable teams, and digital security. She facilitates through a participant-centered, empathy-based approach and design programs that maximizes experiential learning. Preparation: Think about an amazing or cringe-y moment you've experienced during online meetings that you can share.
