Online Meet-Ups

Our online meet-ups are bite-sized professional development and are a chance for facilitators to connect, no matter where in the world they are based. Online meet-ups are for members-only, however we have guest passes available for selected sessions from time to time.

If you are thinking about joining the network and want to try out a meet-up as a guest, simply email us and let us know. We would love to give you a sneak-peek at all the fun!

Here’s what’s coming up:

Monthly Activity Club (No Guest Passes Available) : Tuesday 30 July 2024

Facilitated by Kerri Price – Founder, The Facilitators Network

Our Monthly Activity Club happens on the last Tuesday of every month and is a place for members to share workshop activities with each other. To participate in an Activity Club session, you must be prepared to share a new activity with fellow members. It might be an icebreaker, a game, a creativity tool, a decision making technique, a way to get feedback – anything goes!

There are limited spaces in the Activity Club each month, so make sure your register early and let us know if you can no longer make it.

When

July 30, 2024 9:30 am to 10:30 am NZST

Establishing Group Agreements : Monday 5 August 2024

Facilitated by Kerri Price – Founder, The Facilitators Network

Establishing clear expectations about how a group will meet or ‘workshop’ together is one way to encourage positive participation and front-foot the risk of poor behaviour. However, there is a constant tension between assuming the best of people and treating the group as adults AND recognising that not everyone has the same idea of what positive participation looks like.

In this meet-up we will explore different ways of establishing group agreements at the start of a session, and how we might use those agreements to bring the session back on track if required.

When

August 5, 2024 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm NZST

Using Voice and Body Language as a Facilitator (No Guest Passes Available) : Monday 19 August 2024

Facilitated by Carly Shorter – Communicate Powerfully

Holding space for a group requires a certain degree of confidence and ‘presence’. While our primary focus is facilitation, there is always an element of ‘presenting’ that is required. What we say and how we say it makes a difference. In this session, Carly will share some simple tips for effectively using your voice and body language in your role as a facilitator.

When

August 19, 2024 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm NZST

Accelerate Your Business Growth (No Guest Passes Available) : Monday 9 September 2024

Facilitated by Vanessa Davey – Vanessa Davey Consulting

As an independent facilitator, it’s easy to get caught up working IN the business, and forget (or struggle) to work ON the business, too. If you want your facilitation practice to be sustainable, you need to make time for both. In this meet-up, Vanessa will help you focus on accelerating your business growth and give you simple tools for mastering a 90 Day Plan.

When

September 9, 2024 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm NZST

Fostering Engagement with Large Groups : Thursday 19 September 2024

Facilitated by Kerri Price – Founder, The Facilitators Network

Most of us are comfortable facilitating workshops or meetings with 10-20-ish people, but what happens when you need to facilitate discussions with 50, 70, 100 people in the room? While many of the core principles are the same, being able to hold space for large groups requires a different set of tools and techniques.  In this meet-up, we will explore simple tools and ideas for ensuring large groups stay engaged and participating in a positive, productive way.

When

September 19, 2024 9:00 am to 10:00 am NZST
