Creating meaningful online experiences

‘The way we gather matters. Gatherings consume our days and help determine the kind of world we live in, in both our intimate and public realms. Gathering - the conscious bringing together of people for a reason - shapes the way we think, feel and make sense of our world.’ - Priya Parker

What comes to your mind when you think about online events and workshops? Connecting with different people around the world from the comfort of your couch? Energising and insightful experiences? Or rather digital fatigue and yet another screen share presentation?

Whatever your experience so far, we do believe that creating meaningful events online works. And it all starts with how we design our event or workshop.

How to use this checklist

Planning an event or workshop can be daunting as there are so many details to think about. That’s why we’ve put together this list of questions which we ask ourselves and our clients when we design a gathering. Of course it is not exhaustive, yet our intention is to guide you through the process of planning while keeping the key aspects of your event in mind. You might like to print it out and write down your answers to the questions, or add your own questions which are important to you. We hope it supports you to create more intentional, interactive and enjoyable online experiences for yourself and your participants.
