Tips and tricks for facilitating workshops and meetings

Make space for different types of working and thinking

The Retrospective is a classic activity that combines individual reflection with group discussion

Collaboration = building on one another’s ideas

Stick to a structure and constantly be looking to change it

Be present and listen to understand

Turn off your phone and set your out of office on

Visually represent the conversation

From a recent workshop with a University and Research charity…There’s a reason that agencies are filled with post-it wielding maniacs — they really do help represent even the most complex of journeys or products

Give people a chance to reflect

Don’t be afraid of silence

Build relationships before the session and in the breaks

Have a note taker

Use name badges

Have a car park sheet

Have breaks and keep to time

Bring sweets & bake
