GreenBuzz Moderator Training: Unconferences
February 27, 17:45 - 21:00Donation
Are you tired of the traditional and sometimes stiff ways of convening, such as conferences, congresses, workshops, presentations and so forth? Do you want to be more involved as a participant and, after any given event, leave more motivated and driven than when you arrived?
Then UNconferences are the right format for you! And GreenBuzz Zurich now exclusively offers this ‘Moderator Training – Unconferences’ to people who want to learn how to convene unconferences themselves, or to companies that want to hold unconferences internally.
The ‘UNconference’ is a proven open space format, in which the participants play the leading role: The specific discussion topics are determined by the participants, based on real cases and experiences. This active role of the participants fuels their motivation, creativity and collaborative sides.
The unconference knows only a handful of simple rules, such as:
Whoever comes is the right people;
Whatever happens is the only thing that could have;
When it’s over, it’s over;
If at any time during our time together you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, go someplace else.
Campaign strategist and seasoned open space convener Duane Raymond will teach you how to facilitate unconferences, e.g. how to motivate the participants, what to focus on before and during an unconference, and most importantly, how to be productive and effective in an open format such as unconferences!
You will receive a certificate for attendance.
