AIC 2023 Presentation
Using online workspaces for more productive meetings with your teams
In this presentation, I will share a formula for how to turn any meeting (e.g., project kickoffs, retros, ideation sessions, decision making sessions, strategy sessions, QA bug bashes, etc.) into a co-creation opportunity. Instead of verbose meetings with one person speaking 80% of the time, we will learn to use visual collaboration tools to make the most of synchronous time together. We will learn how to facilitate impactful meetings that surface unspoken issues, make space for intense back and forth discussions, and result in clear decisions.
