The Future Of Hybrid Events, Community Building, And How We Gather with Jon Berghoff
Welcome, Jon Berghoff from XCHANGE, Inside the Greenroom! The way we gather in groups – live events, masterminds, workshops – has been put to the test in the last year. In this episode, Jon gives us a glimpse into how the most successful group experiences often operate on another level – even playing a different game than everybody else.
Want to understand exactly how the pandemic has shifted what’s possible around how we gather? We discuss the future of hybrid events and the science behind creating a thriving community (even a global movement). You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look, revealing exactly what Jon designed and delivered for our team at a recent mastermind event. FYI, it was MIND BLOWING.
Join us as we discuss industry-changing ideas about the importance of facilitation and planning, three questions you will want to ask for your next hybrid event, and even bringing in the audience to help co-create the perfect hybrid event. You’re in for a real treat because this is GROUNDBREAKING information we’ve never shared on the podcast!
If you’re listening and believe there is an opportunity to unlock potential in groups through the power of facilitation, then you’re in luck. Jon is personally leading two workshops with key in sight into XCHANGE’s framework and method hosted July 27th & 28th.
