October 17: The Workshop Workshop by Russ Unger and Brad Nunnally
We are pleased to announce our second workshop at Big Design Conference 2013 on October 17th. It is by two industry leaders, who facilitate workshops all the time. This workshop will sell out. It has limited seating.
You have attended workshops, you have seen them masterfully commanded by other people, and you really want to get a handle on doing this workshop thing yourself. This workshop is the workshop that will help you create and facilitate a workshop of your very own, in whatever workshop fashion you decide upon.
Brad Nunnally, and Russ Unger, co-authors of the book Designing the Conversation, will help you identify the path unlocking the workshop achievement in whatever platform you choose. You will learn how to:
- Plan your agenda
- Structure your workshop
- Identify the tools you need
- Ways to set the pace and tone
- Show real-world examples
- Design exercises to improve learning
Preparation is only a small portion of The Workshop Workshop; you will also gain from the wisdom of the CrankyTalk Workshops to help you feel more comfortable with your material–and yourself–in front of a group of people who are relying upon you to be their guide.
There will be activities where you will experience the true nature of “trial by fire” or “getting your feet wet” (whichever metaphor you prefer). That is correct: You will be leading your very own workshop within The Workshop Workshop, and presenting your findings and results back to the rest of the workshop attendees.
Bring your most comfortable pair of shoes, your favorite writing utensil, and all the gumption you can muster. This will be a jam-packed day!
The Workshop Workshop is one-day before Big Design Conference, so you will not miss a single talk at the conference. The workshop starts at 9AM and ends around 430PM. There are a limited number of seats, so you will want to register today!
Hey Brad, I have the flu or I would attend, nice to see you still participating in the big D, was nice working with you in the past too. I’m on to BIG DATA application and Data mining now. It’s a beast but I am a revolutionary and making drastic changes to the way this company does business and the way the users are interacting with the data!
