How to run remote digital workshops keeping engagement & creativity high. Learn our tips & tricks for successful collaborative facilitation.

It’s without a doubt that COVID-19 is drastically reshaping how we live and work. We’ve all been thrust into a Digital Transformation, not out of choice, but out of necessity. Now that we’re shifting into the “new normal”, companies really need to invest in their digital culture to build a system that will sustain their business and people for the long term.

At SPARCK, when you say the word “workshop”, it’s the equivalent of saying “walkies” to a dog. We love them. When we think of workshops, we think of big open spaces, lots of people, lots of energy and, of course, lots of Post-its. But this physical world is no longer possible.

In the past, if you’d have told us we had to do workshops online, we’d have cringed. Now, it’s our new normal and workshops will never be the same again.

In this interactive session, we will share how we’ve transitioned to fully digital workshops while keeping the fun, energy and creativity high. You’ll learn our tips and tricks for collaborative facilitation, and how to get the most out of your sessions.

What you’ll learn

  1. How to run effective and engaging workshops remotely
  2. How to facilitate in a way that encourages energy and enthusiasm with your participants
  3. How to use digital tools to get maximum impact out of your workshops
