Energize your online events

Co-create interactive online events:

Whether you are hosting a small virtual celebration with ten people or a major global, live-online, scientific conference with VIPs and a hundred attendees, reaching your strategic conference goals depends on orchestrating virtual interactions during your event consciously and with a specific purpose.

This requires careful planning and virtual facilitation that fully considers the live-online environment’s technical unpredictability and the surprises that human dynamics sometimes present. When leading or co-facilitating such events, you want to be positively excited, not nervous. Anything can happen on the global virtual stage, and we need to act appropriately when those surprises present themselves!

Online events and web conferences present some similar challenges that web-based team meetings do – often on a different scale. We still need to captivate attendees’ attention and offer them opportunities to interact in meaningful ways throughout the online event. Providing interesting content, various sensory inputs, and a range of voices and perspectives all help prevent attendees from drifting away into their inboxes and slowly disengaging.

If we look at the research, we find that during conventional online conferences, many ‘attendees’ are not really ‘attending.’ It is apparent that if you want to create effective web conferences where people pay attention, we have to make these conferences much more motivating, engaging and dynamic. We need to dare to be different and gather the courage to stand out if we want to engage people in a truly outstanding event!

Creating a highly successful online event means designing an enjoyable time together, planning for attendee contributions, and interaction. We need to orchestrate an involving, friendly, and inclusive atmosphere that people will remember as distinctive from other events.

@ virtual-teamwork.com, we have extensive experience facilitating, co-facilitating, and designing live-online events worldwide with audiences of tens of attendees to hundreds. We get excited – but not nervous anymore. We want to co-create your virtual event with you so it can be positively different from the others. Our attendees frequently thank us for being so different and refreshing. From check-in to feedback session, conclusion, and next steps –  make your live-online event memorable and invigoratingly different.

We can support you in taking some of the pressure off by designing virtual events that are well thought out, more interactive, and dynamic for both you and your attendees.

Tell us more and see how we can support you in co-creating your successful and highly-memorable live-online event.
