Engage Your Audience with Dynamic Learning Experiences

Registration for SCALING INTIMACY Training January 9-12, 2020 now open.

 

I'm on a mission

to revolutionize

the way we

gather and learn. 

You're a leading edge company.

Your employees deserve leading edge experiences.

We are in the age of the "experience economy", where employees are demanding to be engaged with high quality in-person events.

You’ve done the sit-and-listen lecture-and-slideshow based programs a hundred times, and it's just not delivering results.

 

You notice people distractedly checking their phones and you wonder how much of this they will even retain.

You know there has to be a better way. You can envision the room filled with energy, engagement, profound insight, and meaningful connections, but you just don’t know how to get there.

I know it can feel risky to make programs interactive, because it might seem hard to control the room, or the conversation might go in unexpected directions.

 

Because of this fear, our programs stay limited to predictable formats that are ineffective at creating change.

But it doesn't have to stay that way...

Together, we have an amazing opportunity to create a new paradigm of adult learning and education.

 

The art of Experience Design helps you intentionally craft an event to maximize the experience of each participant, and is based on taking participants on a transformative journey that is interactive, engaging, actionable and fun.

 

As an Experience Designer, I help you transform information into experiences so you can engage your audience and produce profound impact and lasting results. 

 

I specialize in experiential learning, which helps participants learn through their own direct experience in the moment, and then apply that learning to other real life situations. 

 

I design and facilitate exercises that are thematically aligned with your objectives, so that the experiences themselves deliver the lessons and insights you are wanting your audience to have.

 

I love working on events with large groups of people from hundreds to thousands, and am an expert at scaling intimacy - making a crowd of 100 people feel like a gathering of 10. ​​

 4 Design Principles 

ENGAGING

Avoid boredom at all costs! Our approach shifts employees from passive receivers to active participants. The average adult attention span is 8 seconds. If you don’t present information in a dynamic way that captures attention, you simply can’t make an impact.

INTERACTIVE

Every in-person program is an opportunity to create connection and community. Rather than long lectures from one person at the front of the room, our exercises help participants actively learn from each other, creating deeper personal and professional relationships.

ACTIONABLE

No more information overwhelm! Instead of abstract concepts or theories, we help you determine what information is most vital in the moment and how to make it immediately tangible and practical. 

FUN

Everyone wants to have more fun! A playful approach takes the pressure off of learning new skills, and actually helps build new neural pathways, increasing problem-solving skills, creativity and innovation.
