Even though online meeting platforms have advanced greatly, adding new features by the day, we see that most people’s experience of online meetings can be summarised with three words: boring, one-directional, and uninspiring.
But online calls don’t have to be that way!
Many organisations struggle to adapt their in-person activities into powerful and transformative online engagements. At ChangemakerXchange, we have been collecting a lot of experience with online facilitation for years and the time has come to share our knowledge with other organisations.
The ChangemakerXchange Training-of-Trainers Summit on Online Facilitation is an experiential and intensive training, specifically designed for organisations and networks that would like to host transformative online spaces for their communities of changemakers.
This training takes place on Zoom over 8 x 2-hour session.
The application to join the Training-of-Trainers in February 2023 is now closed. Join our waitlist to be the first to know when the upcoming application is open.

PAST PARTICIPANTS' TESTIMONIALS
It has transformed my view. This training is essential for every organisation in current times. It is the basis for us to come together online and it helps us focus on what’s important - people, connection, collaboration.
Online facilitation can be more than what I have attended in the past, also how much work can be done in a smart and very interactive way.
"filled with practical tips"
I have more faith in online facilitation than before. I’ve realized that once we have the right tools and goals for our session and with enough preparation, online facilitation can be a good experience. I will definitely deliver more creative and structured sessions to my participants in the future, hopefully they will feel what I have experienced here.
