Remote meetings don’t have to suck. You don't have to be baffled or bored. You don't have to struggle through talk-over-powerpoint. You really can connect with real human beings remotely, using the technology that's available to you.
After this workshop, you will ROCK at engaging groups of distant participants in rich, multi-layered discussions. You'll look professional before, during and after the event - and even when things go wrong. Whisper it... your online meetings might even be fun.
In this series of live online workshops - remote meetings about remote meetings - experts Judy Rees and Lisette Sutherland will help you get to grips with facilitating online like a pro.
"Meetings are where the action is... It is in meetings that we agree on how we will make or break the future." Elise Keith
These are all-remote events: each participant is expected to join the video call from an individual device, in order to maximise engagement and participation. We’ll start and finish on time, the technology will work seamlessly, and you’ll meet fellow-leaders who share your challenges.
And we promise that it will be surprisingly enjoyable!
Our teaching focus will be on all-remote meetings. Much of the material covered will also be relevant to hybrid meetings, in which some people are in a room together and others are remote. But this meeting format introduces specific problematic issues, so our final class will look directly at the topic
Our five 100-minute online classes are designed to address the five biggest challenges reported by the individuals and organisations around the world who come to us for help.

We'll meet at 4pm UK time on 18 and 25 September; 2, 9 and 23 October. The group will be small, and there'll be plenty of time to get your specific questions answered.
Here's the thing. We've had enough of rambling remote meetings and horrible hybrids. We think it's time to unleash the potential of creative online collaboration so that we can enjoy working together, irrespective of distance.
Great online and hybrid meetings are possible. We've now demonstrated it time and time again, and taught many others to do the same.
We think it's time to change the remote-meetings paradigm. Are you with us?
Author, speaker, consultant, trainer and coach based in London, UK. Leading on distributed diversity and communication clarity in complex contexts.
I'm a facilitator, coach and trainer - mostly working over the internet. Not long ago I facilitated what was probably the world's first "video unconference" in which 150 people self-organised to talk about the things that mattered to them.
I'm the co-author of a bestselling book, "Clean Language", which describes a precision inquiry toolkit which works especially well in complex systems. I coach using this methodology, and I also teach Clean Language to Agile coaches and others, mostly online. I'm the co-founder of the Rees McCann Partnership.
I am a remote-working German-born American living in the Netherlands and I am totally jazzed by the fact that it's possible to work from anywhere. In fact, it's not just possible; it's completely, productively workable—if you do it right.
From extensive research and first-hand experience, as well as from interviews with over 100 workers and manager/owners, I have collected a treasure trove of advice & action lists, pitfalls & solutions, and personal reports of individuals and teams engaged in doing great things—successfully—from wherever they happen to be.
