Virtual meetings are not going away. In fact, the ability to facilitate virtually is an essential skill nowadays. Doing what you do for an in-person meeting is a recipe for failure. Join Melissa Dinwiddie in this interactive session and learn three key shifts that will elevate your virtual facilitation above the pack.

You will learn:

The ONE THING you must do in order to cultivate engagement. 

(Without this, participants are pretty much guaranteed to check out. You’ve lost them.)

The ONE ACTION you must take to get people to engage right from the start. 

(Unless you take this action, people will lean back, keep their cameras off, and watch you like a YouTube video.)

The ONE HABIT you must develop to keep people engaged throughout a session.

(BONUS: This habit will not only keep people engaged, it might make you feel like you have X-ray vision super-powers!)

Melissa Dinwiddie is a former professional artist and trained improviser and jazz singer.
