Virtual Facilitation Doesn’t Have to Be Difficult… Our Webinar Can Help!

COVID-19 has changed the way network leaders meet and engage with each other. Given the very real need to avoid face-to-face interactions and socially distance, many are turning to virtual facilitation to fill the gap, using software like Zoom, Dropbox, Social Media, and other tools. In this network leadership webinar, our guest Ericka shared concrete advice for creating engaging virtual meetings, presentations and other gatherings. It’s an engaging 1-hour webinar with some truly valuable information and insights to take advantage of in your network leadership work.

Tips & Tricks for Effective Virtual Facilitation.

In her work at County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, Ericka works as their Webinar Manager. She has significant experience creating and hosting webinars and other online outreach experiences. Some of the things she covers includes:

  • Icebreaker Ideas & Examples for a Virtual Setting.
  • The Importance of Small Talk for Online Gatherings.
  • Building engaged virtual Communities.
  • Dealing with Trauma in Online Environments
  • Framing Virtual Facilitation as an Opportunity Rather Than a Barrier.

Whether you’re a professional facilitator engaging in this kind of work regularly, or a network manager that needs to know how to use virtual facilitation when you need it, this webinar is a fantastic place to get started.
