Turn your key meetings into productive and collaborative online events

Without knowing how long this current COVID-19 crisis will last, you can’t afford to cancel vital meetings indefinitely or put your facilitation work on hold.

You’ve probably had people tell you, “Just do it online,” and you’re left wondering, “Can this even be done?”

The answer is YES, and we are here to help!

Are you...

A meeting organizer who must now find alternatives to gatherings that are vital to the operation of your company or nonprofit? 

An event organizer who must let participants know that the event they’ve been looking forward to is cancelled or postponed indefinitely?

A freelance facilitator of retreats, advisory boards, conferences, and other events with tons of experience on face-to-face facilitation but not familiar or comfortable with virtual facilitation tools?

The technology exists today to take any meeting or larger event into the virtual realm. All you need is a video conferencing platform, an online collaboration tool that integrates well with the video conferencing platform, and some creativity.

 We’ll work with you to enable productive and engaging virtual meetings and events, so that you don’t sacrifice much-needed time with your team.

What we offer:

We are experienced and skilled in facilitating virtual events, including board meetings, strategic planning, operational planning, employee development, town hall meetings, stakeholder engagements and large international events. Our network includes facilitators fluent in English, Spanish, French and other languages.

We enhance your online event collaboration and engagement through digital facilitation tools and innovative meeting agendas.

Our digital facilitators have an in-depth understanding of the technology and how to use it creatively to meet your objectives.

We work with you on a meeting agenda, do the technical set-up including registration, and provide technical support.

If you prefer to use your own facilitators, we can work with them to create an agenda that combines the best of the technology and some innovative facilitation techniques.

For larger events such as conferences, speakers can be live-streamed from wherever they are in the world. We can set-up panel discussions, even if the panelists live in different countries. Where you planned for participants to have group discussions, we customize online collaboration tools tailored to your needs.

We show you how to do polls, enable participant chats, queue up questions, raise hands, react with emojis and more. Our digital facilitators know how to make the most of the software to guarantee a rich experience for all participants.

We will provide a full meeting report a few days after the event!

What about networking?

An aspect of conference-going that most people find extremely valuable is networking. Can people network virtually? We say “yes” if the following conditions are met:

Enough opportunities are provided for interaction with fellow participants

Attendees are rotated through small-group intentional and purposeful conversations

Networking exercises are adapted to create real human connection

The result can be a networking experience that will lead to lasting connections. Ask our digital facilitators how this can be done.

Case Study

Annually over the past few years, Idea Makers has facilitated a series of in-person ideation sessions. Two weeks before the first session, all in-person meetings were cancelled due to COVID-19; the company’s team members were now working from home. Marlene reached out to NeOlé.
