Dr Penny Pullan will share insights into how to deliver lasting results collaboratively through in-person, virtual and hybrid workshops, taken from her forthcoming book on the subject.

  • Do you need to be able to run really effective meetings and workshops as part of your role?
  • Would you like to feel more confident working with challenging and diverse groups, and with senior leaders?
  • Do you want to deliver lasting results collaboratively, whatever the environment?

Most of us have no training in facilitation skills and yet we need these skills more than ever in these days of virtual and hybrid working.

This event will introduce the process of designing and delivering engaging, well-run and effective sessions, starting with an initial idea and through careful, step-by-step preparation to running them successfully, despite the inevitable challenges.

We’ll touch on design for virtual, hybrid and in-person workshops and explore how to make it likely that actions will happen as a result. This webinar will also draw on aspects of neuroscience, social psychology and facilitation theory to explain where all of this comes from.

You’ll leave with ideas and tips that you can apply immediately to improve your workshops and meetings, an understanding of why they work and, we hope, a curiosity to find out more and become even better at workshops.

Penny is well known around the Business Analysis world as the host of the BA Summit. She’s the author of the soon-to-be released book ‘Making Workshops Work: Creative collaboration for our time’ (PIP, released 13th July 2021) and the bestseller: ‘Virtual Leadership’, a CEO Today Top 5 book for lockdown (Kogan Page, 2016). Penny works with leaders and teams who are grappling with the challenges of our virtual and hybrid world, to enhance collaboration and effectiveness across dispersed and hybrid teams.
