Peter Wright Speaks on Virtual Facilitation

Peter Wright Speaks on Virtual Facilitation

Planning Group President, Peter Wright will speak at the Governance Professionals of Canada virtual conference October 7, 2020. The topic is Conducting Virtual Facilitation for Successful Board Strategy Sessions. The focus is on virtual and hybrid facilitation in a time of Covid-19 related social distancing. Watch this video for a preview.

While most organizations will require a major strategy reset post-Covid, it will be some time before organizations are able to host a strategic planning retreat. It will be even longer before participants are willing to attend. Finding consensus and defining a clear strategy is difficult enough with a professional facilitator in a face-to-face session. Is it possible to make meaningful strategy with real alignment across board and management over Zoom?
