In this 2 hour training, your team will learn how to apply the 5 Keys of Connection to create a feeling of connection and intimacy amongst your participants.
Knowing how to facilitate virtual events that are dynamic and meaningful is an essential leadership skill that is only growing in demand. As we translate our in-person programs to online experiences, it is more important than ever that we design for engagement and prioritize connection. Our methodology focuses on strategically weaving connection into the fabric of your event, so that your participants leave inspired and transformed. No matter what kind of event (workshops, trainings, conferences) or your format, this approach will work with any dynamic learning experience you are creating.
Jenny’s training has transformed our organization’s online experiences. She provided important frameworks to improve our planning of both virtual team meetings and external events and concrete tools that we could implement right away. Our team feels measurably more confident and adept in leading online gatherings – with audience feedback to prove it.
Jenny’s secret sauce is that she not only tells you (quite clearly) how to engage and connect an audience, but also shows you. It’s an all-in experience that’s never boring.
It’s been difficult to foster a sense of belonging in a virtual setting, and Jenny gave us some unique and useful tools to create fast and deep connections. Thanks to your training and great resources, our teams have created new collaborative work streams that will have a lasting impact on the company.
Our DEI and Talent Development team really benefited from a Virtual Connection + Engagement workshop that we did with Julia Winston. She guided us through exemplary virtual exercises that we could replicate in our work while also helping us connect more deeply as a team. The workshop also spurred us to consider how we can continue to harness the power of virtual connection as we look ahead at moving to a hybrid work environment.
