This far into a pandemic, we've all changed our perspectives on what makes a good meeting. Do you find yourself wondering, "What is this meeting about? Is this the best use of our time?" That doesn't sound fun! This webinar is here to show you a better way––one that shakes up 'business as usual' gatherings by infusing them with more creativity, greater inclusion, and more opportunities for meaningful connection. We'll go behind the scenes of meeting agendas to look at some of the most common challenges and pitfalls of online and face-to-face meetings. We'll focus on how visual processes like graphic recording, graphic facilitation, and other types of visuals can help create meaningful connection. Then we'll explore innovative best practices for organizing 'next gen' meetings. The best part is that you don't need to be a super-sketcher to use these tools, because creativity is available to all of us! At the end of this webinar, you'll leave with at least five new ideas to: - help your meetings distill information clearly; - support wise choices; - work with complexity; and - help people feel heard.
