Workshops can be incredible portals to new ideas, opportunities, and connections. But delivering them effectively - especially online - can feel overwhelming, frustrating, or just downright terrifying. In this fast-paced, interactive session you’ll get actionable tools, tips and resources to help you on the path to workshop greatness –– whatever your industry or area of interest.
The skills behind designing and delivering interactive and engaging workshops –– process design; content development; facilitation; public speaking, are enormously valuable in today’s world of work.
But these skills can often feel elusive or out of reach. At Wavetable, we’re on a mission to change that. We help product managers, educators, creative professionals, and community builders to develop their workshop creation superpowers.
This session is perfect for team leaders, product managers, community builders, and independent creatives who want to find new ways to share their expertise, build their authority, and make better work happen.
After this session you’ll be able to:
Apply the fundamentals of an effective workshop to your own projects
Create a winning workshop plan and structure
Use new tools and methods to design and develop interactive activities
Utilize some facilitation best practices to run a room with poise and finesse :)
This session is highly interactive, with breakout rooms (you'll be working in teams); although not essential, we encourage you to be available for the full session.
You don’t need to have a specific workshop in development to join this session, but we suggest arriving with at least a rough idea for a workshop you may want to run.
