How do skilled facilitators prepare for a workshop? And what are the characteristics of a “great” workshop?

In this webinar, two pro facilitators will show you how to add value to your meetings and workshops using the key ingredients of effective facilitation: Principles, People, Purpose. We’ll dip into agenda design and XPLANE’s ‘secret sauce’—visual thinking, co-creation and people-centered design—to take your facilitation skills to the next level.


During this webinar, you will learn:

  • XPLANE’s core facilitation philosophy
  • Three guiding principles for designing a next-level workshop: Visual Thinking, Co-Creation, and People-Centered Design
  • How to set clear expectations, bolster engagement, and get the best from your meeting and workshop participants

All registrants will receive a limited time replay link of this webinar. 


Plus, you’ll get a special bonus for attending live: a PDF and digital board that includes our favorite facilitation recipes.
