Event description


You’re an amazing trainer and facilitator when you’re in the same room as your group, but when it comes to working remotely, you worry:

  • You’ll be trapped by the technology.

  • Interaction with participants will be limited.

  • You won’t be able to read the group’s dynamics.

  • Cultural differences could sour the atmosphere.

  • Your lively small-group activities just won’t work.

  • You’ll be forced into the ever-deadly talking-over-slides format.

  • Attendees will barely pretend to pay attention – and it will not be time well spent.

This workshop will teach you how to make your online training as vibrant as when you’re two feet away from participants. This one-of-a-kind learning experience, led by recognized thought leader Judy Rees, is exclusively offered to ICAgile Authorized Instructors. Judy Rees’ approach, combining an awareness of best facilitative training practices with practical knowledge of modern online meeting technology, will help you learn to get great results even when you can’t be in the room with your participants.

“Honestly, anyone who runs a remote meeting would benefit from this session.”

Chris Palmisano
Lead Agile Coach, Accenture

Following this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe what an engaging, participative live online workshop looks, sounds and feels like.

  • Make real, human connections with participants and create a psychologically safe space remotely.

  • Discourage groupthink and amplify divergence in live online video discussions.

  • Adapt your small-group exercises/activities for a live online video environment.

  • Implement proven approaches for tailoring Agile exercises for live online classes.

  • Implement strategies to manage tools such as chat and whiteboards alongside a video stream, and handle overload.

  • Identify relevant technical considerations, and deal with common issues.

The workshop will take place over two half-day sessions (Mon. Nov 25th & Mon. Dec 2nd, 14:00 - 18:00 GMT), held via Zoom video meeting.
