Virtual Facilitation.

Improving the quality of virtual collaboration and team performance

We can work with you to run engaging virtual experiences, supporting you with the technology, and more importantly, meaningfully connecting people in the virtual space.

LARGE GROUP EXPERIENCES

Running a conference online? How do you engage several hundred people in a productive conversation around key topics, whilst also creating space for the informal - often more useful - conversations to take place? We can help create a seamless virtual experience at the same time as fostering creative, actionable results.

TEAM MEETINGS

Do you have an important meeting coming up that needs to take place virtually? External facilitation supports the quality of this experience and ensures you get the most out of the group. We then focus on enabling you to build your own practices around virtual facilitation to ensure longer-term, internal capability.

VIRTUAL TEAM EFFECTIVENESS

Do you already work in a virtual team and think you can do better? Perhaps you have the technology, yet the way people are interacting and relating to one another could be improved? RISE can support your team with a programme for your virtual team effectiveness.

BLENDING THE TECHNICAL WITH THE RELATIONAL

Yes, the technology is important when considering working virtually and there are so many tools and platforms available to support your virtual collaboration.

However, the technology is just that, technology. It does not solve the challenges we also experience when we work in-person - the complex inter-relational dynamics between individuals, the underlying tensions, differing opinions, varying energy levels and so on.

This is where skilful virtual facilitation can play a key role.

We draw on many years of experience facilitating trusted relationships and strong connections in virtual groups and have seen some great results.

Clients that have switched to working virtually, or an increased mix of virtual and in-person working have experienced the following benefits:

  • Cost savings

You will experience significant savings as venue, food, and travel costs in-person all add up. 

  • Productivity

People can save time by not travelling and waiting around for meetings and events - this generates the possibility for improved productivity.

  • Sustainability
Less travelling in cars, planes and trains to meet with each other which is a kinder way to work for our environment.

"We were close to cancelling a global conference for our senior management group due to unforseen circumstances, but RISE were quick to help us to shift this to a virtual event, and we were really delighted with the experience and the potential of using the virtual more in the future."
