DESIGN INTERACTIVE ONLINE AND HYBRID MEETINGS, CONFERENCES AND EVENTS 
 
TRAINING PROGRAMME | JUNE 2020 | 6 sessions of 3 hrs


GOING ONLINE
Designing and organising online meetings requires new skills, knowledge, tools, techniques and language. This intense training programme is designed to help you to create engaging online meetings and conferences.
Online meetings are not webinars but online gatherings where real people learn, network and enjoy a good time. We mean corporate or association gatherings for internal groups, members or clients, local or international, with a length of a few hours or days. We mean dynamic programs with plenary presentations, break-out rooms, co-creation moments, team building activities, small group conversations, games, theatre, panels, one-to-one appointments and much more. The kind of online meetings where up to 90% of the participants will say they met new people.



PROGRAMME
The programme is composed of six steps of three hours each. It will be a rapid-fire of short presentations intertwined with group conversations, casework and other activities. The online activities are complemented with documents, literature, templates, and a whole toolbox full of smart and up to date tools and techniques. After the training the participants can follow an optional certification process.
The curriculum is divided into six consecutive steps that you can use for all your future projects:

STEP 1 | INTRODUCTION: 
Going online and the stakeholders, teams and tasks 
STEP 2 | FORMATS: 
Online, Multi-Hub and Hybrid meeting formats
STEP 3 |TECHNICAL: 
Audio-Visual, equipment, room set-up, and more
STEP 4 | TECHNOLOGY:
Platforms, settings, security, online engagement tools
STEP 5 | CONTENT DESIGN: 
Online programme, engagement scripts, sessions, activities
STEP 6 | SPEAKERS AND PRESENTATIONS: 
Speakers, panels, facilitators and moderators, presentation style, C&I, and more
