While part of the design team I was also a facilitator on the day. The conference had a theme ‘The Wizard of Oz’.
My session was based on the ‘scarecrow’ and using your brain (thinking). The objectives for the workshop were to gather feedback, for senior management on a specifc issue, think about and cretae a personal vision and make a commitment to achieving it, get to know colleagues and above all have fun.
Each workshop was an hour long session and ran three times during the day engaging with 120 delegates at a time.
Each session/workshop had four activities. The first was to use an electronic voting system to give feedback directly to the senior management on a range of specific issues. The second was a visioning exercise which incorporated the use of an electronic graffiti board, the third was a form of ‘speed introductions’ and finally participants, using bricks, made a personal commitment and physically built the 'Emerald City'.
Fast fun and furious...
