SCALING INTIMACY:
  An Experience Design Training to Create Connection
at Live and Virtual Events
Learn how to strategically weave connection into the fabric of your events, unlocking your group's highest capacities and abilities.

Prioritizing connection creates strong communities, raving fans, loyal employees, and impact at scale. 

 

Not only that, connection actually catalyzes content. When we take time to establish psychological safety and inclusion in a room, participants are far more receptive to your content, and are more likely to retain and implement what they learn.

What people are saying about the Virtual Training

"This was hands down the best virtual training experience I've ever had, and perhaps one of the best learning experiences I've ever had. It was engaging, I learned a ton which I've already begun applying, and I met some amazing people. What more could I ask for?"

"This training exceeded my expectations. Not only did it teach me a ton about how to thoughtfully design an experience that would cultivate connection and collaborative learning, but it also raised my bar for how impactful virtual events can be." 

MICHELLE FLORENDO
Founder of What If you Could

In this highly experiential two-day intensive training, you will learn how to design both in-person and virtual experiences that maximize the impact for attendees, so that participants walk away feeling transformed, inspired, and part of a community. 
 

We will work with the Dramatic Arc Event Template, which will shave years off of trial and error in your event planning process and give you confidence to deliver an outstanding experience every time. I've developed this Template from twenty years of creating events for audiences of up to 2000 people, from the yoga world to the corporate world.

During the training, you will design critical content elements of your event, and get feedback from your peers in small groups, as well as input from the facilitation team.

 

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:​

  • Translate in-person programs into online experiences

  • Scale intimacy, making a group of 300 feel like a gathering of 30

  • Turn abstract concepts into direct experiences that engage participants 

  • Design a debrief process that makes the learning actionable and immediately relevant

  • Design curriculum that takes participants on a transformative journey

  • Balance having a plan with being spontaneous and improvising in the moment

  • Integrate playful exercises to get a group to gel and drop in quickly, virtually and in-person

  • Use the experiential learning model to create events that are engaging, interactive and fun!

YOU WILL LEAVE WITH:

  • A comprehensive workbook with experience design frameworks, principles and tools.

  • At least 10 exercises, activities and games that you can use to create connection and collaborative learning at your events.

  • An interdisciplinary community of experience designers to collaborate with for years to come. 

  • An outline of your event with the major elements already designed.

  • The Dramatic Arc Event Template, which you can use to streamline the planning process for every event you ever create.

THIS VIRTUAL COURSE INCLUDES:

  • Live training from 10am-4pm PST each day (with plenty of breaks), including partner shares, peer    coaching, brainstorming and feedback, Q+A sessions and all kinds of interactive goodies to keep you engaged.

  • Virtual games and icebreakers you can use immediately in your own video calls to create connection and community.

  • A live interactive 2 hour training call one week before the main course, to get you connected with the cohort and started on your design process. If you cannot attend the call live, it will be recorded for you to watch at your convenience.

  • Pre-recorded videos to watch as homework that will cover all the major frameworks and principles of this approach to experience design. These frameworks are universal and apply to both in-person and virtual programs. 

  • Pre-reading to help you get familiar with the material, including worksheets for you to fill out during the weekend.

  • A pre-training survey to help me understand what kinds of projects you are working on and problems you are facing, so that I can customize the training to this specific group.

  • A 1.5 hour follow-up and integration call 1 month after the training to re-connect as a group, support each other as we apply these frameworks, and get your most pressing questions answered by Jenny.
